Durst is taking a bus full of Australian and New Zealand Printers on a tour through its brand-new production facility in Brixen, Northern Italy, on Friday May 17.
Leaving from Munich, where Fespa is running May 14-17, the bus will take a scenic route to North Italy from Germany, finally arriving in Brixen, South Tyrol.
Matt Ashman, sales manager Australia and New Zealand, Durst, says, "It is a primarily Australian event, with 15-18 people from ANZ coming. It gives customers an opportunity to see the birthplace and home of Durst, the production facility, and the commitment we have to print, wide format print, and the broader development of direct media technology.
“Everybody I take to our factories, walks through the doors, and understands Durst. They get why our products are more expensive. We do not do this halfheartedly, we are committed to building the best machines possible, with the best support, and the best young people being trained to deliver the newest technology.
“The machines are made on a production floor which is white, cleaned four times a day. The people there have a real passion for print, and supporting customers in the field."
It will include a quick stop in Brixen's old town, letting the printers be tourists enjoying a beer before heading back to Munich.
Those interested in attending can contact Ashman at 0456 709 338.
