“The development and manufacturing of digital large format printers is swissQprint's core business: their mechanics, control systems and software all take shape under one roof. Now, that roof also houses an ink laboratory,” says a company press release.
A newly formed Swiss team of specialists will be responsible for ensuring the quality of the inks used and their application suitability, communicating directly with ink suppliers.
“There has always been a fast and direct flow of knowledge and feedback from the market into development and series production at swissQprint. Adjacency helps it all along: product managers and engineers of the mechanics, control systems and software all work just a door or two away from production. Such agility is a strength of this company, known for its well-conceived and high-quality large format printers.”

"This expansion of our competence is designed to give customers an all-round optimum solution," says Reto Eicher, CEO of swissQprint. "We are facing the future with confidence.”
The swissQprint Nyala large format printer recently was named Europe's best-selling printer in its class for the fourth year in a row.
