Following nearly two decades of graphic design and signage industry experience and the arrival of a beautiful baby boy, Adam Cox launched his own business in April 2017: Feenix Signs & Graphics Ltd. Since its inception, the company has been supplying and installing internal and external signage, vehicle livery and fleet graphics to both trade and private customers in and around the thriving industrial area of Wisbech.
When it came to choosing a printer for his new start up business, Adam had only one manufacturer in mind – Roland DG – to purchase a TrueVis VG-640 eco solvent wide format printer/cutter. He explained, ‘Setting up my own business was a daunting prospect, but – based upon decades of experience with Roland DG technology – I knew it was the right choice.’
Adam says that the TrueVis VG-640’s hardware and software is very intuitive and enables new staff members to become proficient and productive very quickly. ‘The machines are totally user friendly – both in terms of operation and maintenance – and produce impressive results every time. The TrueVis is the cornerstone of my business; Feenix is centred around – and totally dependent upon – the reliable, high quality output the printer/cutter delivers.’
To get further inspiration, Adam recently visited Roland DG UK’s Creative Centre in Clevedon. He said, ‘Getting the chance to visit the centre has always been on my personal bucket list. From the moment I walked in, I felt like Charlie Bucket walking into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory!
‘Being greeted by the infinite colours, media, materials, products and technology, supported by helpful people only confirmed the high opinion I had already garnered towards Roland DG's products and service. The physical samples on display both amazed and staggered me at times.’
Feenix Signs & Graphics Ltd tripled its workforce within eight months of its conception, and Adam is already looking to expand the premises to enable him to offer more applications.
