Roland DG announces partnership with GGSEU

GGSEU, one of the UK’s leading graphics media suppliers, was chosen to manage and develop a new material distribution plan for Roland DG to serve Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). The British company, which has made significant investments in the past 2 years to increase its production capacity, has over 35 years of experience in product research and development and in the distribution of materials in the large format printing sector. The partnership was launched to provide a complete and competitive solution in which Roland DG machines and materials work together for optimal final results.

Tom Powell, chief executive officer of GGSEU says, “We are delighted to have the incredible opportunity to work with a quality brand like Roland DG. Their products are unmatched in their field and we will make our materials program available. ”

Having worked closely with the GGSEU team prior to this announcement, Svenja Schulz, Product manager of Roland DG Central Europe, praised the collaboration so far established. “In this first phase of collaboration, they have already demonstrated great experience, great motivation, and a clear impulse to make this project a success. I am convinced that Gardiners is the right partner for Roland DG and that it will be the ideal partner to support both authorized dealers Roland what customers ”.

Matt Littler, EMEA Sales director for the British company explains, “We are extremely happy to be working with Roland DG and to see the media range evolving. Our goal is to help Roland distributors further strengthen their marketing channels with materials that adapt perfectly to their needs “.

Before launching a full portfolio in the coming months, partners today announce their collaboration with a series of products, designed specifically for wall and floor applications. Will Duggins, chief executive officer of GGSEU adds, “With so many solutions dedicated to creating safe spaces and creating indications on social distancing, it was clear where to start. It is about supporting Roland DG products and distributors to resume their business with the right means and the best solutions. ”

Despite the ‘new normal’ as regards the way of working and the greater travel restrictions in recent months, the project has maintained its momentum and numerous videoconferencing meetings have taken place. The last meeting, during which the project was definitively outlined before the public announcement, can be viewed here.

The certified media program is implemented from 15 June 2020 in the EMEA regions by the platform , managed by Gardiner Graphics Supplies Europe.

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.
