EFI Reggiani: Opportunities and prospects of the Russian textile market
Three leading Russian textile producers – D-TEX Digital Textile Printing, MIRtex and Sima-Land – invest in solutions of EFI Reggiani.
Having more than 70 years of experience and competence developing textile technologies and machinery, EFI Reggiani is a world leader in the implementation of innovative solutions. The EFI Reggiani product portfolio includes the Reggiani and Mezzera brands – a broad range of solutions for textile manufacturing. EFI Reggiani has had a long-lasting presence in Russia serving key customers with digital printers using water-based inks, analogue printers, and pre- and post-treatment equipment. EFI Reggiani has further enhanced its presence with Nissa Distribution, a valuable local partner.
EFI Reggiani together with its partner in Russia, Nissa Distribution, have completed three new sales contracts for the supply and installation of industrial solutions for direct-to-fabric and sublimation industrial textile printing.
Russia’s first EFI Reggiani Power 180 and Power 240 digital printers were recently sold to D-TEX Digital Textile Printing, located in Stupino, in the Moscow Oblast, and to MIRtex, in Furnmanov, Russia. The companies, which print and manufacture products using natural fibres and knitwear, are among the largest comprehensive textile manufacturers serving Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
The EFI Reggiani Power 180 and Power 240 are industrial digital printing machines for direct printing on fabric, knitwear and textiles in widths of 1.8 and 2.4 metres, respectively. They are equipped with a high-precision continuous transportation belt for reliable, accurate fabric feeding without wrinkles. Both machines can use EFI Reggiani’s water-based, eco-friendly inks, including popular EFI Reggiani BDR Diamond reactive inks.
Russia’s first EFI Reggiani Next 340 printer is being installed at the largest wholesale textile company in Russia, Sima-Land. The Yekaterinburg-based company offers more than 1 million different products, including décor textiles for the home and office and men’s, women’s and children’s clothing.
The EFI Reggiani NEXT 340 is a 3.4-metre-wide, beltless industrial digital printing machine for direct and sublimation printing. Sima-Land’s printer is equipped with four Kyocera industrial printheads and will give the wholesaler productivity running in a CMYK x 2 configuration or in an eight-colour configuration for superior quality. Using eco-friendly, water-based EFI Reggiani IRIS inks will give Sima-Land the ability to print bright vivid shades and colours and ensure an extraordinary level of print durability.
The Reggiani Next printer is the digital solution for sublimation printing on paper and non-elastic fabrics, designed to revolutionise fashion, sportswear and home décor markets with its combination of cost-saving features, speed and quality. Reggiani Next users worldwide benefit from reliable, industrial printing with a limited initial investment on a printer offering exceptional ease of use and the lowest cost per metre production in its category.
EFI Reggiani Senior Vice President and General Manager Adele Genoni:
“We are very excited about the success working with Nissa Distribution and Nissa Stensart to grow EFI Reggiani’s presence in the important Russian market. The installation of high-performance EFI Reggiani industrial digital textile printers at three of the largest textile companies in Russia, and the ability to help these customers grow in the midst of a pandemic, reflect the serious commitment EFI Reggiani and our partners have in helping customers thrive and grow with efficient, productive and green digital printing solutions.”
