Project: Syngenta Manufacturing Centre
What’s the story?
Syngenta is a large global manufacturer of agricultural products and crop solutions. Established in 1916, their Huddersfield Manufacturing Centre employs over 380 professionals.
Proud of their connection to the local community, Syngenta wanted to mark 100 years of manufacturing in Huddersfield.
What was the requirement?
Introduced on recommendation, the Syngenta team got in touch to discuss a series of celebratory banner graphics to hang from the front of their building.
Having never previously used exterior banner graphics on the premises, the team wanted to make sure they achieved the desired effect without causing any damage to the building’s exterior.
What was the solution?
We designed 2 large 3m x 7m banner tension systems to hang either side of the entrance way. We also produced a series of Contra Vision® one-way window vinyls to brand the windows with the centenary message on the outside.
By recommending the ideal materials and creating a detailed installation plan, we were able to reassure the Syngenta team that the banners would be professional and durable while preserving the building.
What were the results?
The end result is a smart and eye-catching branded display that brightens up the front of the Syngenta site. Clearly visible at a distance, the 100 years is proudly at the centre of the display for all to see.
Describing the project, Syngenta Huddersfield’s PR Manager, Carl Sykes, said:
‘I was introduced to Digital Plus on recommendation of their quality print production process. For us, introducing building banners was a new concept and asking the right questions was important.
From the outset, Digital Plus took on the brief and quickly understood what we wanted to achieve. I had confidence in the print process but what also impressed me was the care and attention to detail that the installation crew showed.
They took their time to map out the complexities of the job and made sure that the installation would not compromise the building in the future if we needed to change anything. The end result is a quality and professional job which will help us celebrate and pay tribute to our Centenary year.’
