Protect Safety Signs (PTS), a supplier of Temporary Traffic Management signs to the Emergency Services sector, has recently bought and installed two Océ Colorado 1640 printers.


In operation for more than 20 years, PTS is always looking to improve each and every aspect of the business through investing in new technology to boost turnaround times. The company looked to Canon’s partner ADAPT (Amari Digital Printing Technologies) to upgrade its current print systems to improve productivity and service quality. 


After serious consideration, PTS opted to install two Canon printers through ADAPT to double the efficiency of its production process and increase its print capacity.


Andy Roberts, general manager of Protect Safety Signs, says: “We are extremely happy with the installation of the two Colorado 1640s. Before working with Canon, we had never been able to reliably print and rewind a whole 50m roll of printed media. But, the Colorado 1640 has transformed our print capabilities and we can now print much faster – 114m² per hour – without the level of quality being compromised. This change has been such a positive step for the business and we are extremely impressed with the outcome.”



With several contracts that require high volumes of print materials in a short time-frame, the investment in flatbed printing and cutting-edge machinery has enabled Protect Safety Signs to keep up with demand, while streamlining processes.
