SPGPrints expands digital ink production in Netherlands
SPGPrints, a leader in digital textile printing systems, is doubling the size of its digital ink production facility at its Boxmeer, Netherlands, headquarters for the second time in two years. Scheduled to open in the final quarter of 2017, the expanded 1,000 sq m production facility is part of an €8 million capital investment programme. This will also include the building of the new experience centre, dedicated to driving innovation in digital textile printing.
The expanded facility is in close proximity to both SPGPrints’ R&D laboratories, and the corporate headquarters so that communication chains are short and decisions can be made quickly. When the facility is completed, at least 10 new positions per shift will be created, providing an employment boost for the local economy.
The investment in the ink plant expansion is another step towards SPGPrints’ goal of making digital the mainstream printing technology for textile applications. For more than 30 years, the company has, through its innovation, led the textile industry in digital technologies, and is poised to continue that commitment.
