Summa has more than 30 years' experience and is the European market leader in roll cutters that can quickly cut flexible materials on rolls. For some years, the company has also been operating in the flatbed cutter market. Flatbed cutters allow hard materials to be cut into complex shapes quickly and accurately. Both types of machines are used by the graphic design industry in the final cutting process of cardboard, fabric, vinyl, acrylic sheets, etc. Its worldwide sales go through an international dealer network. In 2015, the company had 52 employees and achieved a turnover of EUR 17.7 million.
The aim is to increase turnover by more than 50% by 2020. Gimv's experience and also the necessary resources should help the company achieve increased international growth. The addition of more professional expertise to the Summa SME organisation will help to further optimise the innovation and marketing of their products and services.
The company wants to achieve growth by further developing its market position in Asia and the United States and by further boosting its market share in the flatbed cutter market.
