“Many recognizable brands rely on us to provide high-quality, responsibly-produced materials in various quantities and performance standards, and Kornit’s technology checks all of the boxes to answer those needs, and support evolving opportunities and challenges that may arise in the years ahead,” said Hani Debs, president of Debs Corporation.
“We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with Kornit, a technology innovator that has demonstrated an understanding of the digitized marketplace and capitalising on the trends that dominate our industry.”
Ilan Elad, president of Kornit Digital Asia-Pacific, said: “Debs Corporation supports more than 250 fashion, intimates, and sports apparel brands globally, and has a thorough understanding of custom textile production as any supplier on the planet.
“Kornit is proud to work with them to demonstrate the many ways digitised production can deliver unlimited graphic and colour capabilities, profitability in any quantity, and a cleaner, more eco-conscious process, to the benefit of producer, consumer, and the broader textile industry alike. We share a common vision of making the industry more capable, more responsible, and more responsive to the values of today’s marketplace, and delivering on the superior end-to-end experience digitisation promises.”
In addition to supporting Debs Corporation’s production needs, the installation will serve as a live production showcase to educate textile industry professionals regarding the expanding possibilities of digitized production as an efficient, streamlined mechanism for supporting global web-driven demand for custom materials, Kornit said.
“Supplementing a production environment that already incorporates sustainable raw materials and waterless dyeing and printing technologies, the company’s adoption of Kornit’s proprietary single-step, pigment-based production process aligns with Debs Corporation’s corporate philosophy of growing via digitalization, innovation, and sustainability. Their efforts reflect a ‘Made with Japan’ mantra, combining the best of the Japanese textile industry with enhancing global technologies such as Kornit Presto.”
