EFI and CMYUK collaborated to enhance their jointly developed demonstration and training center in Shrewsbury. CMYUK’s Shrewsbury facility is the largest independent EFI demonstration center in Europe and the refinements will further increase the portfolio of EFI printers on display.
With COVID-19 creating real headaches around international business travel, CMYUK’s impressive facility is set to become the epicenter for all EFI customers in the UK. The center is set to reopen on Monday 15th June and its size will enable CMYUK to implement safe, extremely comfortable, and viable social distancing arrangements.
Under its newly devised COVID-19 Safety Etiquette, CMYUK will operate a single company experience, ensuring that only customers from the same business are visiting at any one time. CMYUK will also provide all necessary hygiene and protection requirements for effective housekeeping.
Customers will also have the opportunity to learn about Consumable Supported Asset Finance (CSAF). CMYUK’s revolutionary purchasing solution, which links a customer’s consumables spend with significant savings on the price of newly purchased equipment.
By customers switching some, or all of their roll-to-roll consumable spend to CMYUK; the company contributes a monthly amount directly into the finance agreement, reducing monthly payments. So, the more spent on materials, the greater the savings on equipment.
In addition, the extended Government Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) has been extended to directly support capital asset finance. Now UK digital printing companies can get their businesses up and running again by investing in capital equipment at highly advantageous terms. Benefits include 0% to 10% low deposit finance, and no interest or fees payable in the first year.
Robin East, CMYUK, Group director said, “The upgrades to our newly reopened demonstration and training facility will really do justice to the EFI brand ensuring that UK customers have everything they need without having to leave the country. Never has there been a better time to invest in capital equipment. Our CSAF finance package in conjunction with the new government support for asset finance is a win-win for all print service providers. We are reopening our doors but under strict COVID-19 guidelines that will ensure the safety and wellbeing of all our customers and staff.”
