GeeTee Signs creates visually exciting signage for some big household names including Boots, Next, M&S, and Five Guys. Operating since 1978, the Nottingham based company set themselves apart in the industry with their levels of customer service and creativity. Furniture & Joinery Production interviewed Darren Wombwell, accounts director, to find out why they replaced three CNC machines with just one Kimla CNC from Daltons Wadkin.

“We produce everything from internal to external signage, illuminated and non-illuminated, large format signage from a varied range of different materials,” Darren explained. The mix of materials GeeTee Signs processes includes aluminium, acrylic, Foamex, and MDF.

Their three antiquated CNC machines, dating as far back as 25 years, were noticeably lacking in speed and ability. “We went over to Daltons Wadkin showroom and they demonstrated to us what the machine could do in real world conditions, how we’d be using it back at our base”. Darren and his team took sample materials and their own CNC files for a thorough demonstration on the Kimla BPF CNC router.

Daltons Wadkin were able to show them exactly how the CNC would operate for their projects, and the added opportunities it could offer combined with the iVision extraction system.

Production time and quality of cut means GeeTee Signs can now produce their own prototypes, further expanding their product portfolio.

Darren explained the key benefits, “The speed, the materials it can cut, the quality of the cut, and the ability to send our files straight through our network as opposed to having to put it on memory sticks and physically take them down to the old CNC machines we had.”

Replacing three CNC routers with just one machine has been a huge development for GeeTee Signs, but it also means they rely on Daltons Wadkin for back up and support. “If the machine goes down then we can’t produce anything that’s CNC, and most of our work has got CNC cutting in it somewhere… every time we’ve needed Daltons Wadkin for support we’ve got great service. Every time we’ve ordered something it’s come promptly, and the guys on the other end of the phone are fantastic,” enthused Darren.

The future for GeeTee Signs is looking bright, with an extensive client base which continues to grow they are able to offer more than ever before.

Darren concluded our interview, “I would recommend Kimla that Daltons Wadkin supply. It’s a great machine, it does everything we need it to do especially in this industry and more, and the service we get from Daltons Wadkin is brilliant.”
