Durst Oceania has confirmed it will launch the entire range of Vanguard products in Australia and New Zealand.

In an exclusive interview, Durst Oceania managing director, Matt Ashman confirmed the full range of roll-to-roll, flatbed and hybrid products will launch following FESPA 2024 in Amsterdam.

“I am pleased to confirm that Dan Mantel has come on board to develop the Vanguard business sector as business development manager and we will be reaching out to work with potential partners as well as customers in the near future,” Ashman said.

“Durst acquired Vanguard back in 2019 and the Covid pandemic prevented us from launching it earlier into the local market. The benefit of waiting to launch has meant that the brand is now assimilated into Durst business as well as the hardware and software ecosystem and this is fully backed by the Durst service network.

“There are now over 1000 Vanguard installations globally and the brand continues to grow in the established market of North America as well as exponentially in the European market.

“Printers have been telling us that they are looking for an alternative to the other players in the market. There have been a number of manufacturers that have delivered some great innovation, but unfortunately this was a number of years ago. Now Vanguard is here delivering what Durst is famous for – innovation on a constant rolling basis. We will continue to be focused on what customers need and what customers want.

“Vanguard can deliver amazing quality at incredible speeds, while also providing a very commercially attractive proposition. Vanguard sits within the Durst range as a more accessible entry point for the aspiring print business and we look forward to welcoming new customers to the ever-growing Durst family.”
