Mtex & SPGPrints’ strategic partnership to serve the textile printing market

A series of technological & operational adaptions

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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
