Interview with Wouter Mouton, Partner at 3motion, Belgium – Large Format Print and Visual Communications Specialist
I recently met Wouter in his new office on the outskirts of Lokeren, Belgium to find out more about the 3motion philosophy.
Tell me the story of 3motion ?
‘We have been around for around 6 years and now have around 30 people, we like to think of ourselves as a innovative and dynamic company who specialise in Large format print. But our difference is that we like to provide the complete solution for our customer. From Design, production, finishing, transporting and fully installing. We manage every part of the process by ourselves, and this enables us to ensure the highest level of service and quality.’
Graphics is just one part of the service , we are experts in visual communication, and recognise the importance to a customer of speed, service and flexibility. But we really like to bring a customer’s ideas to life.’
We like to work with brands and agencies who really have a vision. We can help create that vision into a reality. If a customer has a great product, it is important that the product deserves a great presentation’
We deliver a solution that connects all the elements for presentation, whther it is using custom made re-board, boxes, stands, packaging or presentation displays’
What is your relationship like with your customers and how important is your ability to connect with the creative teams ?
Working closely with the creative team is crucial, we give a customer’s brand all the attention it needs. We start with onsite visits, one to one consultation and then a custom designed solution. Each customer’s needs are unique, you cannot treat them all the same’
Our work isn’t done until the final printed materials are live and everything looks and good as the customer envisioned at the beginning.
What segments do you specialise in ?
The machines we use and the relationship we have with our suppliers really help us to offer a broad range of services.
We currently have a brand new Inca Onset, a Vutek Gs3200 , a couple of HP Latex 570 printers and a Zund cutter
We work closely with companies like Beelite, who supply honeycomb board and some really interesting substrates.
Our key markets are Retail, Outdoor signage, Interior design and décor, expos and events and finally POP .
Our strongest relationships are always with our customers and suppliers, it is a connected chain. We know that working closely together and really understand needs enables us to respond effectively.
3 motion have recently moved to larger premises and are also opening a new office in the Netherlands later this year. If you would like to know more then please contact Wouter.firstname.lastname@example.org
