Summa Belgium factory
Our Beginnings

In 1987, a factory in Gistel, Belgium, that had assembled recording devices for the manufacture of precision optical lenses since the early 1970s, began modifying pen-plotters for the use in vinyl-cutting applications. Today, the evolution of that company is Summa nv, formed in 1999 from CalComp Display Products nv. (formerly Summagraphics). Along the way, we’ve revolutionized the printing and cutting technology and have become a recognized global leader in our industry. Learn more from our company in the history timeline.
