French coating company Senfa will support Micomp Consumables, its exclusive distributor in South Africa, at Fespa Africa (7th – 9th September at the Gallagher Convention Center, Johannsesburg).
Decoprint, the inkjet division of Senfa, has rapidly developed a presence in Europe and overseas with its high quality printable textiles for large format and super-wide applications. Its flagship product, Pearl, has become the reference for indoor backlit displays in Europe but the decoprint range also includes fabrics suitable for frontlit and speciality applications printable on all the main platforms (UV-curing, Latex and Solvent).
Midcomp will be launching Pearl in South Africa and across the African continent at Fespa.
“The time is right for expanding into new markets and we are delighted to have Midcomp Consumables on board as our sole distributor” says Colm Garvey - the Senfa Area Sales Manager. “Midcomp has a business dedicated to consumables. They were looking for quality products that fit in with their machine offerings, such as HP Latex, and they wanted media that is latex and UV compatible. Our high quality backlit film, DECOPRINT PEARL, is available up to 5m wide and is perfect for latex and UV curing printers We see no reason why the year on year growth experienced in Europe cannot be reproduced in South Africa when print-houses see the benefits of printing onto textiles stocked locally.”
“DECOPRINT PEARL is simply the best backlit textile for Latex and UV-Curing printing technologies and we look forward to satisfying our customer’s needs with this valued partnership. Put a light behind Pearl and the colours just come to life” said Rakesh Rosen, Sales Director of Midcomp Consumables (Pty) Ltd. “We are thrilled to be launching Pearl at Fespa Africa and we expect it to be a game-changer for indoor backlit graphics in airports and shopping malls.”
Midcomp will be exhibiting in Hall 3 stand D1.
