UK Signage Firm JMF Group Invests £250K in New Technology and Equipment

North East-based JMF Group is looking ahead by enhancing its operational efficiency and the quality of its signage products.

Signage firm JMF Group in Newcastle Upon Tyne has announced a major investment aimed at delivering significant efficiencies and enhancing the quality of its products.

The rapidly expanding company is preparing for future growth by adding state-of-the-art equipment to its facility in the Swalwell area. Known for its premium signage materials used for marketing, signage solutions, and retail POS, the company will now offer its clients an enhanced service.

In addition to delivering premium quality consistently, JMF Group will now be able to produce signage products with much shorter turnaround times. According to the company, signage manufacturing processes that previously took 90 minutes will now be completed in as few as 15 minutes.

Representatives from the business hope that this drastic reduction in lead times will allow JMF Group to handle much larger volumes and enhance customer satisfaction. Fewer errors and more accurate signage processes will also deliver a significant rise in quality and consistency levels.

Four of the new additions to the company’s signage operation include the integration of the AXYZ INFINITE 6010 ATC and the 1530 PIRANHA ATC CNC machines, which have significantly boosted productivity and efficiency within JMF Group. With advanced automatic tool change capabilities, these CNC machines have streamlined production processes, reducing downtime associated with manual tool changes and allowing for uninterrupted workflow. The precision and speed offered by these machines have enabled JMF Group to meet tight deadlines with ease while maintaining high quality standards. Overall, the implementation of these cutting-edge CNC machines has propelled JMF Group towards greater operational efficiency and competitiveness in their industry. With the capability of cutting anything from 1mm to 50mm thick acrylics and aluminium from 0.7mm to 8mm thick to any shape desired, they have ensured clients have plenty of options for CNC cutting.

Next is a modern Dual Output Laser Welder. Using this new technology, JMF Group can now weld stainless steel and aluminium with ease, creating more durable and precise joints. Up to 10 times more efficient than the company’s previous welding solution, the Dual Output Laser Welder creates welded surfaces that require no post-treatment processes. Additionally, the ALB (Automatic Letter Bender), the latest model, is an innovative combo bending machine for spatial letters. It is a significantly modernised version with a very good reputation and popularity among professionals.

JMF Group’s investment is great news for the local area. According to company bosses, a range of new positions have now been created. The goal is to hire a dedicated team member for each piece of equipment. This approach to signage should deliver significant improvements to performance, output, and workflows.

The addition of the CNC machines, the Dual Output Laser Welder, and the ALB (Automatic Letter Bender) machines has already set JMF Group apart in the North East of England. The company is believed to be the only signage specialist in the region to have all the new machines on site. This should give the firm a distinct advantage over its competitors in terms of industry-leading quality and production efficiency.

JMF Group Managing Director, Jack Foggin, is optimistic about what this significant investment will mean for the signage firm. He said: “This new investment in cutting-edge signage equipment democratises job opportunities within our workforce, as it empowers less experienced employees to undertake tasks that traditionally required higher skill levels.

“As a result, this investment improves our operational efficiency and promotes upward mobility and higher earning potential for our team members. We’re an ethical employer, and this investment allows us to enhance the culture of reward and respect at JMF Group.

“By significantly increasing our productivity and reducing turnaround times, we can handle a higher volume of work. And that’s great news for our clients. We can now meet tighter deadlines and deliver at scale without compromising quality. In fact, this new investment will increase quality across many product ranges.

“This investment lays a solid foundation for our growth and sustainability for the foreseeable future. It’s also a clear signal of our commitment to delivering exceptional signage solutions and keeping costs as low as possible for our clients.”

JMF Group has a long-term plan for growth and expansion, and this investment is only the beginning. The new equipment will complement the company’s existing operations — increasing productivity, efficiency, and capacity within its Gateshead production facility.

This is positive news for everyone involved. Not only are jobs at JMF Group now secure, but the firm is creating a range of new positions at its North East headquarters. Additionally, businesses across the region and the UK will now benefit from faster turnaround times, enhanced product quality, and greater capacities.

As signage materials need to be created quickly to support internal and external signage needs, including promotional campaigns and brand awareness initiatives, retailers, marketers, and events organisers now have a partner they can trust.
