Solent’s new router is big enough to handle the largest sheets materials and tough enough to make light work of the heaviest production demands. This router is so precise that it can brand acrylics, with a company logo for example, during the nested cutting and profiling process so that the customer’s end products are delivered with that personal finish.

By harnessing the advantages of the latest plant and machinery, Solent has consistently managed to remain competitive in an increasingly price sensitive business, yet managing to offer the precision, customer service and attention to detail which has made them the number one supplier of fabricated services for many of their customers.
