Durst joins FESPA UK and sponsors Green Award

Durst joins FESPA UK and sponsors Green Award
Durst has doubled down on its commitment to support the UK print industry as it moves towards a greener future.

The company has joined FESPA UK Association, as it seeks to work closely with its members and the wider print community in the UK, in order to understand its priorities and to help deliver on them.

Peter Bray, Managing Director of Durst UK & Ireland, said: “Our sponsorship of the Green Award at the inaugural UK Graphic Awards, which will take place on 14th September in Leeds, is an important statement reflecting our ethos regarding environmental responsibility. Durst has always pursued an ecological and sustainable approach, which is also firmly entrenched in our corporate philosophy.

“Joining FESPA UK will enable us to get involved in the discussions about how we can help to create a greener print industry in the UK. This goes hand in hand with our aim of offering the most sustainable digital print technologies to our customers.

This starts with considering the ink technologies but also includes minimum substrate waste when feeding the machine and minimum waste generation, energy and water consumption during the machine’s manufacture.

“One of our major developments has been the introduction of water-based inks marketed under the term ‘Water Technology’ for customers in the packaging industry, for example, machines for single-pass printing onto corrugated media and our Alpha Series printers for the textile industry.

Suzi Wilkinson, Director at FESPA UK, commented “We’re delighted to be welcoming Durst to the FESPA UK family. Its long-standing commitment to sustainability fits perfectly with our programme for a greener UK print industry, and we look forward to the hugely valuable contribution that we know Peter and his team will make to the discussions going forward.”

Durst will discuss its Water Technology developments in an upcoming FESPA UK Live Session, a series of online discussions the association is hosting with industry partners to enable as many people as possible to get involved in its sustainability agenda.
