GDLNetwork HPpic LFR

In recognition of its considerable contribution to the HP supply chain, the GDL Network has also recently been appointed an official reseller of the new range of HP Scitex flatbed printers. The company has a long established relationship with ArtSystems who have been distributors of the new Scitex 550 and 750 since their launch in April 2015 and GDL Network will be using their state of the art facilities in Nottingham to showcase these products.

GDL Network member companies are part of a much bigger picture that not only sells HP wide format print equipment but uses them within their own commercial environment, giving testament to the quality of the products they sell in that they trust them to fulfill their own customers varied and pressing requirements. This unique insight and first-hand knowledge of the quality, efficiency and production capabilities of HP’s entire range of large format printers means that fellow print service providers can be assured that they are buying from a network of companies that practice what they preach. The organisation counts some of the longest standing UK suppliers of Graphics and CAD materials amongst its members, with 21 members in total; all of which also run print bureaus alongside their consumables and hardware supplies businesses and thirteen with dedicated HP Large Format Printer Showrooms, spread right across the UK.

Throughout the months of September and October, the GDL Network is opening its doors to the trade, so print companies can see the latest range of HP wide format printers in action in a working print environment, similar to their own. Already a HP Gold Partner reseller, members will be showcasing the latest offering from the HP Latex 300 series (HP Latex L370) as well as the HP Latex 310, 330 and 360. The GDL Network HP showrooms taking part include London, Nottingham, Hull, Preston, Woking and Worcester.

GDL Network members include John E Wright & Co which was established in 1900 with an incredible 115 year history and Repropoint Ltd in Woking who just celebrated their 40th anniversary last month. Jim Vaughan, managing director of the GDL Network comments: “There is an enormous wealth of expertise within the membership and because they do not compete with one another, they are prepared to share this expertise, which in turn enables them to advise customers when considering the purchase of new equipment for their own print businesses. We often use one member as a test site, which can provide the whole group with invaluable experience of the machines in a working environment. We are a great example of practicing what we preach and only sell products that our own members actually use in their bureaus and know to be reliable and robust, delivering great quality for the best value.”
