GGSEU, a leading supplier of graphic materials within the UK, has been enlisted to manage and further develop a new and progressive Roland DG media programme, proudly serving Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The UK firm, having undertaken substantial investment in the last 2 years to increase its manufacturing capabilities, comes with over 35 years’ experience within product R&D and media distribution within the wide format sector.
The partnership has been initiated to further provide a complete and saleable solution in which the Roland DG machines and media work harmoniously for optimised end-results.
“We are all very excited to work with this very agile and professional organisation” enthuses Paul Willems, Head of Business Development & Product Management for Roland DG. “We have been offering Roland branded media for many years and it has been a highly successful program but now we are ready to take this to the next level”.
GGSEU CEO Tom Powell added, “we are overjoyed to have the incredible opportunity to work with an exceptional brand such as Roland DG. Their products are unparalleled within their field and we shall be providing no less with our media programme”.
Having worked closely with the GGSEU team ahead of the announcement, Svenja Schulz, Product Manager for Roland DG Central Europe praised the collaboration thus far. “In the preparation to this announcement they’ve already shown great expertise, high motivation and the clear drive to make this cooperation a success. I am convinced that Gardiners is the right partner for Roland DG and that they will excel at supporting authorised Roland dealers and customers”.
Matt Littler, EMEA Sales Director of the UK firm, further explained, “we are exceptionally excited to be working with Roland DG and to see the media range evolve. Our goal is to support Roland dealers in further strengthening their routes to market with media perfectly suited to their needs”.
Prior to a full portfolio launch in the coming months, the partners announce the collaboration today with a series of introductory showcase products, designed specifically for short to medium term floor and wall applications. GGSEU Managing Director Will Duggins added, “with so many printers turning their hand to creating safe spaces and conveying important social distancing guidelines it was clear that was where we had to start. It's all about supporting Roland DG’s printers and dealers in getting back to business with the right media and the right solutions”.
Despite the ‘new normal’ way of working and increased travel restrictions in recent months, the project maintained its momentum with many discussions taking place via video conferencing methods. The latest meet can be viewed here, in which the project is celebrated ahead of its public announcement.
The certified media programme will be servicing EMEA regions from its platform https://www.myrolandmedia.eu/, provided by Gardiner Graphics Supplies Europe from 15th June 2020.
