Japan-based Konica Minolta, Inc. said it has acquired Verga IT S.r.l., an Italian inkjet textile printer producer.

Alongside, Konica has also set up a new subsidiary - Konica Minolta IJ Textile Europe S.r.l. (IIJT), its first overseas sales subsidiary for industrial inkjet business in Italy.

Konica said by setting up the subsidiary, it is aims to enhance its sales and services capability in the European inkjet textile printer market and its proximity, a region which has great growth potential.

With the establishment of IJIT, Konica Minolta will offer solutions that meet market needs and further improve customer satisfaction through high-quality and speedy services.

“We will also keep an eye on the Turkish market, with a good growth potential in the future, where inkjet textile printing is making inroads locally,” it added.

The worldwide textile printing market has been going digital rapidly, as digital inkjet technology has better responded to market requirements of the apparel industry.

The current requirements include printing highly detailed and precise designs which were difficult to produce through traditional analog printing.

The requirements also include printing with excellent quality through production of small quantities of many different designs. Inkjet technology has realized them all.

In addition, as inkjet textile printing uses significantly less water than analog printing, more and more factories have shown interest in adopting digital technology.

While Europe accounts for majority of the global digital textile printing market, most of the European digital textile printers are located in Italy.

In the Como region, renowned as high-grade apparel manufacturing cluster, Italian textile printers have pioneered installation of inkjet textile printers. (AR)
