Former Starleaton executive, John Buitenkamp, has confirmed he will be returning to Australia with Dutch company, Klieverik.

Speaking with Sprinter at FESPA in Amsterdam, Buitenkamp confirmed he will be visiting Australia later in 2024 to promote the Klieverik range of calender machines alongside new distributor Ball & Doggett following the announcement in March.

“Our partnership with Ball & Doggett represents an exciting opportunity to expand our reach and deliver our innovative solutions to a broader audience. Together, we will empower textile manufacturers to enhance their capabilities and achieve new levels of efficiency and productivity,” Buitenkamp said.

“I started working at Klieverik in November last year when I moved back to the Netherlands from Australia. We have seen a lot of Australians here at FESPA and for those that have not been able to attend we will see you at Drupa – otherwise I will be coming to Australia later in the year.”

Buitenkamp will visit Australia later in 2024 to visit customers to discuss the Klieverik business that specialises in designing, manufacturing, installing and maintaining innovative industrial machinery including advanced dye sublimation and fixation calender heat presses.

When Ball & Doggett was confirmed as the new distributor of Klieverik, Rob Brussolo GM for sign display & digital at Ball & Doggett said the company is delighted to partner with a brand that is well known in the field of advanced textile processing.

“Their expertise in dye sublimation and fixation calender heat presses perfectly complements our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions to our customers. Together, we are poised to redefine industry standards and drive innovation in textile printing,” said Brussolo.
