RMC Digital Print hits sustainability targets with PVC free solutions

Wide Format Solutions

Hull based RMC Digital Print has revealed how its long term use of PVC free materials from Soyang Europe has helped it win a host of new customers and expand its service offering.

Specialising in graphics for the signage, exhibition, set and stage markets, RMC Digital Print will this year celebrate its tenth year in business and recently underwent a management buyout, in a move it said has enabled it to make decisions quicker.

This shrewd approach to business has helped RMC Digital Print establish itself as not only one of the leading providers of trade wide format print to the UK market, but also as a business that is highly committed to the environment and to offering its customers planet friendly products.

The company’s long term relationship with Soyang Europe has played a key role in the business hitting its sustainability targets. The two companies began working together in 2014 when RMC Digital Print approached Soyang Europe to learn more about its PVC flex face skin material, as it was experiencing issues with the previous product from a different manufacturer that it had been using.

Having been able to identify a high quality replacement that fit all its criteria in the form of PVC flex face skin material, RMC Digital Print went on to use a wide range of substrates from the company, printing on its Durst Rho 512R and EFI Vutek GS5000r printers.

‘One of the main reasons we like working with Soyang is its knowledge about the substrates it provides,’ said commercial director Alex Wood. ‘The customer service is also exceptionally good, and we feel like we can rely on them.

‘The products we use are excellent quality; Soyang has a number of different ranges of materials to choose from. We have also found that the stock levels are good, and we very rarely have difficulty in getting a substrate in from the company. You can give the team a call with an application in mind and it will be able to suggest a suitable material to use.’

Alex noted the impact of working with the PVC free materials – including Solar Frontlit Standard, Solar Frontlit Premium, Solar Greyback Frontlit and Solar Mesh – all of which have played a major role in the company securing new work from like minded and green minded clients.

‘Soyang Europe has offered us a number of PVC free alternatives that have helped us to expand into new markets due to the demand for sustainable products increasing in almost every market in which we work,’ said Alex. ‘Additionally, both companies have partnered with Fespa UK and Prismm on the initiative to recycle PVC products, further expanding our green credentials.’

One product that has proved extremely useful for RMC Digital Print over the years is Polycril, a seamless wallcovering product that is available in white back, blockout and recycled options, all in widths of up to five metres. Alex said the use of this materials has significantly helped the company gain more work in the wallpaper market.

‘Many of our clients prefer the material as you don’t need a join in it; at first they were worried that it would be difficult to install but now a lot of them find it much easier than traditional wallpaper,’ Alex said.

‘Since working with Soyang we’ve been able to offer a variety of products to our clients which has helped them secure more work.’
