Record turnover as ACT celebrates 15 years

Large-format print and display company ACT in Cardiff is celebrating a record turnover of ?1.32m million - an increase of 17% on the previous year - as it celebrates its 15th anniversary.
ACT, established in 1994 by Ian Davies, Antoni Dziemidowicz and Lee Saltmarsh, now has a large purpose built production facility at Capital Business Park and has doubled its output capabilities. It was the first company in the UK to buy a Virtu 3.5m UV hybrid inkjet printer, enabling it to provide direct printing onto flat sheets and also providing it with the ability to create giant displays. The business, which employs a team of 20 and has more than 300 active clients across the UK, including The British Army, the Welsh Assembly Government, Cardiff County Council and the bed specialist superstore Dreams, hopes to build on its sustained success as it aims to acquire further cutting edge digital equipment previously unseen in Wales.

Director Ian Davies said: "Celebrating our 15th year in business is a significant landmark for ACT and comes at a time when we not only face the challenge of the current economic climate, but also the demanding but extremely exciting developments in print technology.
"Our continued investment in high quality finishes and cutting edge print technology means that many of our clients, including many recognisable names across the UK, have continued to come back to us for further high profile branding projects.

"Our acquisition of the UK's first 3.5 metre Virtu UV Printer marked a substantial move forward for ACT, and we hope to acquire a further machine to increase our production very shortly."
