CMYUK announces digital textile development facility

CMYUK has announced that it intends to build a new digital textile development facility in Shrewsbury. The construction, which will be an extension of its existing demonstration and training centre, will showcase digital textile printing equipment and associated technologies.

The new facility will enable CMYUK to further expand its growth in the digital textile print sector in terms of both equipment and materials for use in the emerging décor, design and fashion markets. Its dedicated business division, which has already established close product development programmes with key textile and equipment manufacturing partners, will increase significantly once the new centre is on stream this year.

Commenting on this new development, CMYUK Group Director Robin East said: “We’re really excited to announce this investment into our infrastructure and are looking forward to becoming the UK’s market-leading supplier for digital textile production equipment and materials.”

This announcement closely follows the appointment of Brett Platt as Digital Textile Division Manager, who said: “Our objective will be to develop a comprehensive range of natural and man-made fabrics made from cottons, linens and polyesters.

“We will be a one-stop supplier for equipment and material for companies of all sizes and will be developing and proving coatings to support our expanding range of natural fabrics, working closely with chemical companies to formulate solutions. Research and development will play a large part in the growth of the new division, including advances with pigment printing that will help customers achieve the best possible colour and fixation when printing directly onto natural fabrics.”

Robin East concluded: “We will also be partnering with designers and production companies to showcase contemporary wall and ceiling systems, plus décor and fashion and will  be hosting many innovation days for customers within the business and educational sectors.”
