Over Seven million pounds of development in NORFOLK


This week sees the start of stage one of a key development, Repro Arts the most easterly printer in the UK, based on the Renewable Energy Park adjacent to the Great Yarmouth Seafront, its home for almost twenty five years gains a major development on their door step. The first stage of the development commenced this week and work will cost over seven million pounds followed by two further stages, and will be completed by this time next year.


This Key development is a major boost for Great Yarmouth tourist industry adjacent to the Pleasure Beach,  The Edge development planned by Albert Jones is a vast investment for the seafront area and is guaranteed  to boost tourism, an 81 bedroom Premier Inn and a Beefeater restaurant by the Pleasure Beach opening at the same time. The second phase will see the building of a cinema with eight screens, five chain restaurants and an indoor play area.

The planned third stage will be a casino and there would also be a multi-storey car park built.


This development combined with  the recent announcement that Great Yarmouth will hoste the Air Show over the sea front this summer means the sky is the limit on the east coast.

The development on a strip of land between the edge of the sea and the Marine Parade will extend the length of the seafront drive to the south towards the outer harbour complex and will be the first new building on the seaward side since the SeaLife Centre arrived in Great Yarmouth.

Even the sea is covered as the giant cruise ship The Seabourn Quest heads for Great Yarmouth laiden with hundreds of passengers, tourist ready to visit the Golden Mile and other local attractions, shops and restaurants. Places of historic importance and interest like the renowned Nelson Museum and Nelson’s monument next to Repro Arts will also be on the tour list when the giant cruise ship docks at the towns port this summer season. Visitors pick up a copy of the Great Yarmouth Mercury for all the area attractions.

This development and that of the Air Show which is organised by the Great Yarmouth Tourist Information will have a knock on effect for other attractions in the Norfolk and Suffolk area, as more tourists are attracted by the Air Show this year and the opening of The Edge next year. Attractions can plan for increased visitors for the coming years.

The upgrades to the A 47 will be finished for the summer season for safer and easier travel by road linking Great Yarmouth with the A12 and the National road network. Up grades to local roundabouts and roads will also be finished with Rail network repairs complete for a smooth running summer.

Development of the old Pontins holiday park area is also a hot topic in the news as Hemsby residents review plans for the new residential Development adding another large construction project in the the surrounding area.

Great Yarmouth is looking to retain it’s GREAT with such investments making people feel proud to be part of a vibrant town. Plans for a third river crossing are well under way , this access point will give the Energy Park access to the road networks. With the Great Yarmouth council looking to encourage renewable energy companies into the area to work alongside the well established Oil and Gas companies. It’s not just national companies, local stores in the town centre can claim grants towards replacing old signage,  reflecting a smarter, brighter image to encourage shoppers back to the town centre. New national store opening soon will need staff, offering job opportunities in the town centre for local people as another flagship store chooses Great Yarmouth.The future looks bright. The MP for Great Yarmouth Brandon Lewis who has recently changed office in the last cabinet reshuffle has put Great Yarmouth on the political map, drawing attention to the town.

With other International, National and local companies expanding and doing well.  Beacon Park filling up now the new link road between the A47 and the A143 has been completed, and the Energy park ready for regeneration prospects are looking good with new opportunities on offer for local business as developments, expansions and construction take place.

Wide format printing & cutting technology on acrylic

Wide format printing & cutting technology on acrylic

Full colour printing on to Acrylic

A revolution in printing technology has given the end user an unrivalled product. It offers the Designer a blank canvas to create an image of picture & text & the printer has become like a bespoke tailor offering made to measure print.

Printing can be on to a range of thickness to meet your requirement for any project. Acrylic extruded sheet is available in standard size of 3M x 2M & can also be tiled. Acrylic is available in a vast range of standard colours opaque, translucent also transparent.

The Designers image can be printed direct to the opaque acrylic sheet in full colour. This creates stunning eye catching images. To avoid colour loss & to retain the strength of colour a white panel or spot white areas can be printed with the full colour image printed over the white area.

The transparent acrylic sheet offers further flexibility for design. The image can be printed in the same way as the opaque. A further option is to under surface print. This option simply means that the full colour image is printed on to the under side of the acrylic. The full colour printing is then over printed with white ink in the areas required. This offers opacity to the full colour image. This printing system offers protection to the ink as it is behind the acrylic. The image is correct reading from the front of the acrylic. White text of any point size can also be printed on it’s own to ether face or reverse of the acrylic sheet. The white needs to be shown as a fifth colour within your art work file. Clear areas can be left with in the print area to accommodate TV or computer screens to be affixed.

The printed acrylic sheet of any thickness can be cut to any shape. Just supply a Vector file to path with the art work. Extra apertures for fittings or dials can be cut at the same time as the profile cutting. The cutting is as revolutionary as the printing.

This process offers a wide product range from display panels, operating panels, dash boards, graphic display panels for promotional stands to wall mounted display panels with stand off fittings, counter tops & signs.

For wide format printing & large format finishing of print.
