Dantex Digital, part of the Dantex Group, has announced a new distributor partnership with Nekkorb Solutions, a printing solutions company based in Auckland, New Zealand.

The arrangement, which covers the Pico range of digital UV inkjet printing press equipment and related consumables for the Australasia region, including Australia and New Zealand, expands Dantex’s portfolio of similar arrangements covering other areas globally.

Nekkorb Solution’s relationship with Dantex will create opportunities for its customer base to invest in digital print and meet rising demands for shorter print runs and faster turnaround times. Similarly, the move will give Dantex the ability to create relationships in a new market.

“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.”

Commenting on the Pico range, Brokken added: “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-colour pinning and a wide printable colour gamut range that is achieved with four-colour process printing, 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,” said Dantex Group CEO Ben Danon. “They are a customer-focused organisation with a high-quality range of products and we see the Pico range of digital presses fitting perfectly with their 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.”
