Roland DG increase availability of sublimation machinery through two new dealer recruits

Roland DG has today announced two new partnerships with leading suppliers of digital textile print systems R A Smart and i-Sub Ltd, as consumer demand for sublimation continues to rise.

Founded in 2001, i-Sub Ltd has over 15 years’ experience trading within the sublimation market and believe that the addition of the Texart XT-640 will attract a range of both new and experienced textile professionals into its showroom. Confident that this initial installation is the first of many more to come, i-Sub Ltd believe that Roland DG’s robust and reliable machinery coupled with its industry-renowned innovation will be a perfect match for a long and productive relationship.

Commenting on the announcement John Purse, Director of i-Sub Ltd said: “Advances in the sublimation industry have meant that customers are constantly looking for the most advanced machinery on the market to provide their customers with the best possible products and stay ahead of the competition.”

The partnerships, officially announced on the 1st of June, will see both companies sell and install the Roland DG Texart XT-640 with their wide range of clients.
