ADAPT to expand at 'fantastic' new premises
ADAPT - Amari Digital Printing Technologies has moved into new premises, allowing it to expand its team, services and the amount of stock it can hold.
Founded in 2018 as the fusion between Amari Digital Supplies and Graphic Printing Technologies, ADAPT is one of the UK's leading suppliers of roll media, hardware, ink, printheads, consumables, tools and accessories for the sign and display industry. By the beginning of this year, it was clear that ADAPT had outgrown its Nottingham premises and in February found a new site. Covid-19 had an impact on the plans, but the entire move was finally completed over two weekends in October, ready for the A team to move in and start socially distanced working on October 19.
‘The new building is perfect for us in terms of size and ambition,’ explained Dominic Bowen, general manager. ‘We are growing our sales team and expanding the dedicated e-commerce team working on our new web shop, going live in November.
‘While our old premises had no training facilities, our new home has space designed specifically for training in vehicle wrapping, architectural and signage applications, which will be delivered by our media suppliers and in-house application specialists.’
Like many businesses, the company continues to feel the effects of the pandemic, but these new facilities are part of a long term growth plan for the business.
‘We are investing for the long term and looking beyond the pandemic, to provide the best customer experience, service and product range in the industry,’ said Dominic. ‘We have seen significant growth in vehicle graphics and the architectural market is also becoming a new driver for our growth. We had already planned to offer training in these areas so we are looking forward to using our new dedicated Covid secure training centre in the near future.’
ADAPT's new climate controlled warehouse space can also accommodate more than 50% more roll media stock, in particular to meet the unprecedented demand for floor graphics film. However, there is still space to fill.
‘The new building does feel enormous!’ said Dominic. ‘There is a lot of empty desk space for our expanding e-commerce team, whilst other members of staff continue to work from home. But it is fantastic, the move was seamless and the whole team are excited to get going in our new home.’
