European digital printer manufacturer swissQprint has set up an ink laboratory at its headquarters, and brought in ink specialists to the company.
The new ink laboratory is primarily responsible for ensuring the quality of the inks used and their application suitability.
Reto Eicher, CEO of swissQprint, explains, "This expansion of our competence is designed to give customers an all-round optimum solution.
“The newly formed Swiss team of specialists communicates eye-to-eye with ink suppliers. Of course, this interchange is also meant for maintaining a continuous improvement process: 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.”
swissQprint currently employs more than 100 people at its headquarters in Switzerland, and says it intends to continuously grow.
Eicher explains, "We are facing the future with confidence," Around 40 more people work at swissQprint subsidiaries in the USA, Spain, Germany and Japan that act as pure sales and service operations to complement over 30 partners.
