On the 1st July printMAX successfully completed its acquisition of the consumables business of Planet Media Ltd. This represents a major step forward for printMAX in the consumables arena.
Michael Bolton, MD of printMAX commented, “I am excited to be announcing what is a significant boost to printMAX's capability in terms of products and expertise in consumables. Planet Media has an excellent reputation in the industry and printMAX is very proud to be continuing this commitment to quality and service under the printMAX banner”.
Brian Stringer, MD of Planet Media: “When I was looking at potential candidates to take on our consumables division. I knew I only wanted to offer it to a company of high standards of integrity and service to maintain what we had already built up. With Mike Bolton at the reins of printMAX, they have consistently fulfilled these criteria, and I am very happy to entrust the well-oiled machine that is Planet Media to Mike’s capable hands”.
As part of the acquisition, printMAX will be taking on Nigel Reineck, Planet Media’s Senior Sales Manager. Nigel brings an intimate knowledge of Planet Media and 25 years experience of the consumables business to printMAX, which has been a leader in large format print itself for 20 years. This combined wealth of knowledge and experience will bolster printMAX’s position at the forefront of the large format print, finishing and consumables industry.
This extends printMAX’s capabilities significantly in terms of available portfolio of products, the range of media and inks on offer and the wealth of knowledge, service and backup available for printMAX customers.
"This is a tremendous addition to printMAX, one that will show tangible benefit to our customers. This expansion will consolidate printMAX’s position as an industry leader in products, service, and customer focused know-how”. Michael Bolton, MD, printMAX.
