Dantex Digital, part of the Dantex Group, has appointed Auckland, New Zealand-based Nekkorb Solutions as its new distributor for Australasia, expanding the manufacturer’s global reach.
The arrangement covers the Pico range of digital UV inkjet printing presses and related consumables for the Australasia region, including Australia and New Zealand. It will create opportunities for local customers to invest in digital print and meet rising demands for shorter print runs and faster turnaround times.
‘We have been looking to represent a digital press manufacturer for some time,’ said Frank Brokken, managing director for Nekkorb Solutions. ‘Dantex is a well-known, highly respected, and trusted brand that has really great digital printing technology, with some genuinely competitive advantages. Nekkorb always partners with companies that have similar values to itself, and we believe that we have found these with Dantex.
‘This is a very exciting digital offering with some super industry-leading technology, especially in the areas of printing - these include a high opacity white ink, inter-color pinning, and a wide printable color gamut range that is achieved with four colors, making the press extremely cost-effective with fewer consumable overheads. These features alone place the Pico range into a market space on its own.’
‘Nekkorb is a family-based company, which has many similarities to the culture here at Dantex,’ added Ben Danon, CEO of Dantex Group. ‘It is a customer-focused organization with a high-quality range of products, and we see the Pico range of digital presses fitting perfectly with its portfolio. Frank and his team have a vast array of experience and understanding of the markets in Australia and New Zealand, and we envisage that this relationship will go from strength to strength.’
