Roland DG launches the Roland Hero Awards 2018

Roland DG launches the Roland Hero Awards 2018

Throughout 2018, Roland DG will be on a mission to find, recognise and celebrate the remarkable things achieved by Roland users. As part of the mission, Roland will launch the Roland Hero Awards 2018 on 11th April 2018.

 It will be looking for Roland users, across Europe, Russia, CIS, Middle East, North Africa and India*, who might have transformed their hobby into a business, created work for quirky, unusual or famous customers, grown their business really fast, passed their business down through several generations, worked in unique locations, developed an innovative product, built a winning team, donated work for charity or good causes – or just gone that extra mile.

Roland DG knows that there are hundreds of thousands of Roland users with special stories to share and its search has already uncovered some fantastic ones.

They include Gemanco Design, an Italian company that has a background in the construction trade and thus understands the impact of colour, texture and creativity in interiors, and Maisha, a Roland user that moved her business 2,000km to be with the love of her life, who she met when they were both checking out the latest Roland technology at a print show.

Other contenders are Elite Signs & Graphics, a family run business that has relied on Roland printing and plotting technology from day one and Max Model whose ability to print intricate detail using Roland VersaUV technology has enabled it to become a leader in the miniature modelling industry.

Commenting on the Awards programme, Gillian Montanaro, Head of Marketing, EMEA at Roland DG, said: “Having worked for this company for almost nine years, there’s something quite unique and special about Roland. I know it’s a cliché but we really do have our customers at the very heart of our operations.

“I’ve always been totally amazed by the commitment that our staff have to our customers and their willingness to find solutions, identify new opportunities and to generally help them to run successful businesses. Our philosophy really is about trying to be the best and to help our customers to produce the best, and, of course, to be successful too. That’s why we have a network of offices and Roland authorised dealers throughout the region that enable us to keep in regular touch with our customers. This initiative is designed to highlight those customers that have done amazing work, because we want to help them to build their reputations.”

The 2018 Roland Hero Awards officially launches in April and promises rewards, recognition, celebrations and much, much more.
