SPGPrints is a worldwide supplier of printing equipment, mainly for the textile industry. With its origin in Boxmeer, The Netherlands, SPGPrints invented the rotary screen printing technique, which has been the most commonly used technique for printing fabrics for decades. Nowadays, digital printing techniques are making its way into the industry and while the growth of digital printing is not as explosive as expected, it is gaining market share over rotary screen printing techniques. SPGPrints has the unique position to have both rotary screen and digital printing machines, as well as the consumables for both printing techniques in its portfolio.
With the textile industry as one of the biggest sales market and the global awareness about sustainability increasing, SPGPrints is aware that it is contributing in one of the most polluting industries (e.g. 10% of global carbon emission is accounted to the fashion industry). Therefore, SPGPrints management has defined a workstream to embrace sustainability as a company and to take the lead on sustainability in the printing market.
