Sponsors Lined Up For Fabric Printing Now


Fabric Printing Now has announced that the Platinum sponsor for the two-day event in October will be MTEX Technologies - manufacturers of digital printing machines for textiles. The Portuguese company opened a UK operation, in Leicestershire, last year, and is one of the leading companies in its field.

Commenting on his company's sponsorship, Managing Director, Stewart Bell, said: "Digital textile printing has now come of age and we have developed solutions that will appeal to successful print companies, not just within the lucrative dye-sublimation market.

MTEX Solutions looked at the bigger picture two years ago and have now fully developed solutions for print companies to adopt a completely integrated, micro-textile printing factory within their established businesses. This is what will interest medium to large print companies and why we believed it vital for MTEX to sponsor the FESPA UK Fabric Printing Now conference.

As the leading manufacturer of, and integration expert in, digital textiles, we are delighted to be able share the knowledge and experience we have learned over the years to help the UK print industry have a bite of the lucrative re-shoring opportunities for textile printing in the UK."
