While Summa is often still a hidden gem in its own country, it has already proven itself an established name out in the vast world of cutting solutions. No fewer than four product series are developed and manufactured under its single Belgian roof. These Summa products are being distributed worldwide thanks to an extensive network of approved and trained partners. Over the past 50 years of business activity, Summa has achieved great success in Europe, America and Asia.
But what are the drivers of Summa as a company? What is at the heart of the success of Summa’s cutting equipment? Some company values highlighted:
Quality and durability go hand in hand
Summa originated in 1973 in Belgium. Back then, the factory housed the assembly and the distribution of analogue recorders for the European market. Ten years later, the first pen plotter and cutter were introduced.
Summa has been building a solid base of knowledge and experience for half a century now! Consequently, Summa’s cutting equipment is known for its quality and durability, and companies from all over the world have been relying on its legendary performances. Summa keeps high levels of quality, especially thanks to continuous research and product development.
Innovations that create value
Who knows better what creates value in print and cut workflows, than the businesses in the sign and display, textile, and packaging industries? Summa and its partners, therefore, stay in close contact with each other and the market to monitor the industry’s needs. In this way, the Research & Development teams can continuously develop innovations that create value to the customers.
This objective is reflected in Summa's extensive product range today. The diversity of vinyl cutters, flatbed cutters, and laser cutters has become a true strength. It includes solutions that grow along with the business, ranging from cutters that every shop can afford to top-level cutting systems worth investing in.
At the heart of the success
The high standards of Summa's products are at the heart of its success. This success is achieved thanks to all involved, from the employees to the global network of valued approved partners. The teams care about their customers and are there for them if they need help, whether it is in choosing the right cutter or exploring it further. Customers choosing Summa is the biggest vote of confidence we can get.
