ADAPT to supply Epson SureColor printers in the UK

ADAPT to supply Epson SureColor printers in the UK
ADAPT, part of the Vink Group, has reached an agreement to supply seven models of the Epson SureColor printer range in the UK.

As an established UK supplier of roll media, inks and wide-format equipment to the sign and display sector, ADAPT is now able to offer its customers Epson SureColor SC-S40600, SC-S60600, SC-S60600L, SC-S80600, SC-S80600L, SC-R5000 and SC-R5000L printers, as well as Epson OEM inks.

James Argent is the Hardware Sales Manager at ADAPT, having joined the company last year. He arrived already having had a longstanding relationship with Epson. He explained: “I’ve worked with Epson for around ten years and in fact, I’ve had a relationship with them ever since the original SureColor was launched.”

With this in mind, once James took up his new position at ADAPT – and with the company being a major player in the sign sector – this new arrangement was a logical next step for all concerned.

“ADAPT already has contacts across the signage market,” said James “And that means we have lots of potential customers for the Epson SureColor printer range. For example, we run lots of vehicle wrapping courses at our training centre in Nottingham and thus offering this range is a natural progression for us.

“A lot of the customers who attend our courses are only just starting to explore the possibilities that print has to offer and the Epson portfolio is a great way for them to take those first steps.

“For Epson’s part, it is looking to broaden the range of partners it works with when it comes to signage and, given the large client base we can offer across the entire Vink group, it’s a perfect match.”

ADAPT, which operates facilities in both Manchester and Nottingham, will be offering customers everything from demonstrations to training and installation services, as well as long-term support and maintenance.

ADAPT is very experienced in the large format print sector having longstanding relationships already in place with leading names from across the industry, including Mactac, Kernow Coatings, Canon, HP, Mimaki and Summa. As such, ADAPT is ideally positioned to work in partnership with Epson.

Commenting on the new business relationship, Phil McMullin, Head of Sales Commercial & Industrial Printing, Epson (UK) said: “We are excited to welcome ADAPT as our latest value-added partner for our sign printer range. With an excellent media proposition and true national coverage, the ADAPT organisation will bring award-winning Epson technology to an even wider customer base.

“We have also invited the ADAPT team to host prospects with us on our stand (Stand 40) at the forthcoming Sign & Digital UK event, which will take place at Birmingham’s NEC on 22nd-24th March. Customers will be able to see a demonstration of the 64” SureColor SC-R5000 printer, one of Epson’s most recent large-format printer introductions, which uses odourless water-based resin ink in large ink pouches, and will be making its UK debut at the show.”

James Argent sees particular potential in this solution. He observed: “While we envisage that the majority of our customers operate in the sign sector, we also believe that the Epson SureColor SC-R5000 will be of great interest to other sectors such as retail. This new model, which is Epson’s first signage printer to include a resin ink solution, was launched during the pandemic, so perhaps it hasn’t really taken off as it might have done… yet.”

He concluded by stressing that the SureColor machines are all about quality and reliability, saying: “They are tried and tested products. They deliver exactly what you need them to.”
