Mtex and SPGPrints announce strategic partnership

Mtex NS, a leading provider of digital printing solutions, software engineering, and service providers, proudly announces a new partnership with SPGPrints, a leading global company in conventional and digital textile printing solutions. Both companies are pleased to officially announce a strategic agreement from 2020 extending into 2022.

Over the past 6 months, Mtex NS and SPGPrints R&D teams have been working together to incorporate SPGPrints’ specific digital textile application know-how into the unique digital printing solutions of Mtex NS. An infinite number of tests have been conducted which lead to a series of technological and operational adaptions to perfectly fit the Mtex digital equipment to the textile customer needs. “The current generation Mtex printers, which today is a reality in the Iberian market, already has the stamp of development cooperation between the Mtex and SPGPrints R&D team. Now, through this strategic cooperation between Mtex and SPGPrints, we will be able to offer unique printing solutions, based on both companies know-how and commercial channels, to the digital textile printing industry worldwide,” says Eloi Ferreira, chief executive officer of Mtex NS.

Dick Joustra, chief executive officer of SPGPrints adds, “This new partnership offers SPGPrints an enhanced portfolio of products and applications to serve its growing client base and to open up new channels. Furthermore, the agreement enables SPGPrints to expand its offering in some of the largest and fastest-growing textile printing markets across the world and it will expand both companies’ offerings into new markets.”

The partnership does include technology for sublimation and pigment printing, two applications that are expected to show significant growth. As a global innovator SPGPrints is in a leading position of bringing more sustainable solutions to the textile printing market. Mtex digital printing equipment provides a perfect platform to create new sustainable digital textile printing solutions alongside SPGPrints’ proprietary Archer® Technology platforms Pike and Javelin.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
