Hybrid and Xpres get together
Textile transfer and sublimation specialists Xpres has unveiled plans to radically extend its product offer with the addition of hardware and supplies specifically designed for the sign industry.
Commenting on the significant changes that the company has made to its existing ranges over the last 18 months, Luke Clayton, Xpres’ Executive Director explained: “Whilst our core market has been in digital textile transfers and sublimation gifts, our aim is to become a one-stop supplier serving the whole of the visual communications market. The sign industry is therefore a natural progression for us and we are currently building a comprehensive range of hardware and supplies that will enable us to make our expansion plans a reality”.
The first phase of the expansion is already complete, following the announcement of a strategic alliance with Hybrid Services, the exclusive Mimaki distributors for the UK, which will enable Xpres to sell a comprehensive range of Mimaki printers and cutters.
John de la Roche, National Sales Manager for Hybrid said: “Xpres is a highly professional partner and we’re very pleased to be part of its expansion into new markets.”
Luke Clayton added: “We’re incredibly excited about this new partnership with Hybrid, as Mimaki has an outstanding reputation for quality and innovation that we have always admired and we’re delighted to incorporate its machines into our existing range of printing technologies”.
Visitors to Xpres can now gain experience on all of the Mimaki printers in the new Xpres demonstration facility, the ‘Inspiration Suite’. The company also expects to reveal further details about its new range of products for the sign market over the coming weeks.
