Textile transfer and sublimation specialist Xpres has announced plans to extend its product portfolio with the addition of hardware and supplies specifically for the sign industry.
The company has made significant changes to its existing product ranges over the last 18 months. Xpres executive director Luke Clayton explains, “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 Xpres and we are currently building a comprehensive range of hardware and supplies that will allow us to make our expansion plans a reality.”
The first phase of that expansion is already complete with the announcement of a strategic alliance with exclusive Mimaki distributors for the UK, Hybrid Services Ltd, which will see Xpres selling a comprehensive range of Mimaki printers and cutters.
John de la Roche, National Sales Manager for Hybrid says, “Xpres provides us with a highly professional partner and we’re very pleased to be part of the company’s growth into new markets.”
Clayton adds, “We’re incredibly excited about this new partnership with Hybrid. Mimaki has an outstanding reputation for quality and innovation that we have always admired and we’re delighted to have introduced their machines to complement our existing range of technologies”.
Visitors to Xpres can now experience all of these Mimaki machines in the company’s new 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.
