Please tell us about your company in brief.

The JK Group is the owner of three commercial brands namely Kiian Digital, J-Teck and Sawgrass Industrial. Dover is the parent company of both JK Group and MS Italy. There is a lot of synergy between the companies. For example, MS and JK were in the same stall as MS printers use Kiian digital inks.

Did you launch any new technologies or show existing technologies at ITMA 2019? Please share features and benefits of these technologies.

At this ITMA, Kiian Digital, a brand dedicated to textile inks, showed a new range of reactive inks named Digistar Bellagio. Digistar Bellagio was born from the synergy of highly specialised teams in digital textile printing in MS Italy and JK Group. It is the effort to go beyond the limits of product and process by developing systems that can raise efficiency and maximise results.

The colour selection for the Digistar Bellagio range has been conducted by selecting dyes, allowing reproduction of the widest colour gamut offering outstanding bright and vivid colours. It includes eight colours; CYMK, black, light black and three spot colours, orange, red and blue. The reactive range of inks was developed in cooperation with MS Italy.  

To how many countries do you export?

We export to more than 90 countries.

What is your opinion of ITMA compared to other textile machinery exhibitions held elsewhere?

ITMA is the biggest textile machinery exhibition in the world and offers a 360-degree perspective to buyers of any textile technology.
