R A Smart expands with specialist large format division

January 07, 2021

R A Smart (CAD & Machinery) was originally established almost 40 years ago, as a bespoke manufacturer and supplier of specialist short run textile printing equipment and auxiliary equipment, supplying commercial printers, design studios and educational establishments all over the world, as well as throughout the UK.

We have been at the forefront of digital textile technology since the early pioneering days of the late 1990’s and can rightly claim to be experts in the supply and support of dedicated textile digital print solutions, partnering with the leading machine manufacturers we have a large and varied customer base throughout the UK. Covering a vast array of applications including fashion, furnishing, sportswear, household textiles and soft signage we are in a unique position to advise and guide our customers through the various machine solutions, ink chemistries and processes required for any textile application.

We are now thrilled to be expanding our product range and expertise with the appointment of a new partner, Adam Booth, who will be heading up our Large Format Solutions division. This new partnership will allow us to reach new customers in different areas of the industry, whilst maintaining the support and expert knowledge we are renowned for. It also means we can open up our product range to include exciting new printer solutions as well as accompaniments such as Summa Cutters, ONYX RIP software plus much more!

I believe this is a very exciting time for the Smart’s collective business. The reputation, heritage and customer service focus of the R A Smart business perfectly fits into a diverse and expanding large format channel. I believe that RA Smart now offers a unique portfolio of hardware, ink technology and media. This allows our clients to benefit from an unrivalled approach to delivering a total solution and application sale.“

R A Smart (Large Format) is trading now and our brand-new, Southern based Application Centre will be opening later this year. Whilst this division will remain an independent entity, the customer experience will be completely seamless for the end-user across the R A Smart Machinery Group. Our brand-new, equipment-focused website will automatically direct your enquiry to the correct department, ensuring the best possible service from industry leading experts.

The future of print is exciting, and we can’t wait to be a part it!
