Vink Group company Adapt has reached an agreement to supply seven models of the Epson SureColor printer range in the UK. It will sell the SC-S40600, SC-S60600, SC-S60600L, SC-S80600, SC-S80600L, SC-R5000 and SC-R5000L printers, as well as Epson OEM inks.
Adapt, which has facilities in Manchester and Nottingham, will offer demonstrations, training and installation services, as well as long term support and maintenance.
Phil McMullin, head of sales, commercial and industrial printing, Epson (UK), said: “We are excited to welcome Adapt as our latest value-added partner for our signage printer range. With an excellent media proposition and true national coverage, the organisation will bring award-winning Epson technology to an even wider customer base.
“We have also invited the Adapt team to host prospects with us on our stand at the Sign and Digital UK event where we’ll be demonstrating the 64in SureColor SC-R5000 printer which uses odourless water-based resin ink in large ink pouches.”
James Argent, hardware sales manager at Adapt, joined the company last year having had a longstanding relationship with Epson. “I’ve worked with Epson for around ten years,” he said. “In fact I’ve had a relationship with them ever since the original SureColor was launched.
“Adapt already has contacts across the signage market, and that means we have lots of potential customers for the Epson SureColor printer range. For example, we run lots of vehicle wrapping courses at our training centre in Nottingham and offering this range is a natural progression for us.
“A lot of the customers who come on our courses are only just starting to explore the possibilities that print has to offer and the Epson portfolio is a great way for them to take those first steps.
“For Epson’s part, they are looking to broaden the range of partners they work with when it comes to signage and, given the large client base we can offer across the entire Vink group, it’s a perfect match.”
