New technology investment for heritage display specialists Leach


Creative display specialist Leach Inspire has procured new print technology to further improve the longevity of its signage products.

The investment will support ongoing innovations within the heritage side of the business.

Set to be used primarily on Leach’s external signage system – Vault – the new print system produces an even stronger bond between the ink and substrate. The result is greater print adhesion to the base layer and heightened performance of the overall sign.

The technology has already been put to good use, having helped to produce 40 interpretative Vault systems for Culzean Castle in Scotland.

Commenting on the developments, Director Jim Parkin said: “Vault is a well-established signage product renowned for its durability and stunning photographic quality which has helped to transform the external tourism and heritage landscape. But we’re not a company that rests on our laurels. We believe in pushing new boundaries for clients so have invested in the print technology that will result in even more vandal-proof systems that can last 10 years with ease.”

Moving forward the printer will be used on other elements of Leach Inspire projects, such as fabrics for internal museum displays.

The technological investment comes hot on the heels of wider R&D announcements throughout the business. Mike Wilshaw has joined the Leach team as head of innovation for example, and elsewhere, in Leach Impact, there have been a series of new product launches including the Vision Product Wall. But with an annual R&D budget of £250,000, there could be lots more in store for 2017.

“Clients are constantly demanding more for their investments, especially in the heritage sector,” adds Mike. “But rightly so. Technology is getting ever-smarter, which means we can engineer creative solutions that weren’t previously possible. It’s this innovative mindset which keeps Leach one step ahead of competitors and the public engaged with our clients’ spaces.”

Leach Inspire is one of three brands within the Leach group of companies. Leach Inspire and Leach Studio serve the museum, heritage and visitor attraction sectors, whilst Leach Impact has become renowned for its retail, brand and exhibition display solutions.
