Get your vehicle noticed with Trim-Tech Graphics Ltd
Established in 2003, Trim-Tech Graphics located near Newry offers a wide range of custom decals and graphics for trucks, vans and buses. From simple logos and contact details to bright and striking full vehicle wraps, this exceptional family-run graphics business can help with your individual needs.
Vehicle branding is a great and cost-effective way to get your brand, products or services noticed. A vehicle bearing eye-catching graphics can make a huge impact on thousands of potential customers every day.
With over 15 years’ experience in the vehicle graphics industry, Trim-Tech Graphics can help you to create bespoke designs that make the best use of the space on the exterior of your vehicle. Whether it’s a full wrap, partial wrap or custom decal, they’ll get your brand noticed. A full wrap covers your vehicle completely in a specialist adhesive vinyl material. The wrap material is manufactured to allow it to bend and shape to the curves and contours of the vehicle. A partial or half wrap is a good solution if you have a limited budget because the impact is still very strong.
Wrapping or part-wrapping is not only cheaper than painting or airbrushing, it can also be easily removed if you lease your vehicles and need to return them.
“Our alternative to airbrushing is a digital printed wrap. We can either use high quality images or specific designs or fades for lorry grills or panels etc. We only use the highest quality vinyls to ensure the best quality for our customers. Our graphics are easy to apply and remove,” explains Trim-Tech Graphics owner Jason Trimble.

From humble beginnings, the business has grown to employ four full-time and another four part-time staff. Jason’s wife Sandra is also involved, while their children Samuel (14), Joseph (12) and Ruth (10) help out when they’re off school.
“We’re a small family business which is run from a workshop on the family farm,” Jason says.
“Prior to setting it up in April 2003, I worked as a steel fabricator in Castlewellan for Walter Watson Ltd who, I’m delighted to say, is now a valued customer of mine. I saw an opening for a graphics business so I bought a vinyl cutter plotter and went at it part-time. The business grew from there through word of mouth and recommendations, and within three years I was at it full-time.”
“Since then, we’ve invested heavily in equipment and machinery, while our staff are highly-trained and experienced. We get a lot of repeat business and are attracting new customers every week.”
Jason’s customers in the haulage sector range from owner-drivers to large fleet operators.
“We’ve built up a large customer-base across Northern Ireland. We do graphic work for the likes of Surefreight in Newry, Mulgrew Haulage in Dromore, Eamonn Rooney Coach Hire in Hilltown, Derry Refrigerated Transport in Portadown and Jenkins Shipping in Warrenpoint. SlurryKat Engineering in Portadown, and Herron Engineering in Castlewellan, who both manufacture a range of farm machinery, are both good customers.
“Some thought I would need to be in a town to get the customer base, but I think being out in the heart of the country, this has not been the case. We have many customers who travel quite a distance to us here. Many say it was through recommendation or having seen our work that brought them to us. We have done lorries for people from Enniskillen, Cork and Scotland. All of our customers, whether they are big or small, are guaranteed an exceptional service at a competitive price. We always aim to do a good, tidy job.”
Opening hours are from 8.30am to 5.30pm every week day except for Thursday evening when they re-open from 7.30 to 10pm. The South Down concern is also open from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays.
“We stay open late every Thursday as it suits customers who can’t call over during the day. Business is flying and we would like to take this opportunity to thank both our customers and suppliers for their continued support,” the affable managing director concludes.
