Joe has safety gear well stitched up with machine
THE staff at All Safety Gear are excited about increasing what they bring to customers since acquiring a state-of-the-art embroidery machine.
The embroidery machine has been put through its paces already, with 200 shirts being embroidered since Wednesday.
Before the purchase, managing director Joe Sciuto had to outsource the embroidery part of his business.
Now All Safety Gear can offer a complete service of shirts with embroidery done in store, which saves two weeks of turnaround time.
At 1000 stitches per minute, the embroidery machine can render complex embroidery such as logos and names, with ease.
"You just watch everything fall into place," Joe said.
The state-of-the-art system incorporates a digital logo on a screen, and laser technology for logo alignment.
Everything is designed on a computer, which is then transferred to a USB.
"Once the design is uploaded and thread colours are programmed, it's off and running," Joe said.
"It saves us time and saves the customer's time."
Joe said there were three things he tries to embody for a successful business.
"Firstly modern equipment, secondly a timely manner and thirdly great customer service," he said.
Joe has also recently bought a new test and tag machine to complement his services.
