ep­son Takes Over Ro­bustelli for Good

Perfect Sourcing - - International News -

Ep­son Group com­pany Ep­son Italia has agreed with the Ro­bustelli fam­ily to ac­quire 100% of the cap­i­tal of Fratelli Ro­bustelli S.r.l. (“Ro­bustelli”), a leader in the tex­tile print­ing in­dus­try. The agree­ment aims to drive syn­er­gies and fur­ther in­crease cus­tomer value by ex­pand­ing the scope of the two com­pa­nies’ long­stand­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion in dig­i­tal inkjet tex­tile print­ing.

The en­try of Ro­bustelli into the Ep­son Group will al­low it to lever­age Ep­son’s man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­ity to bring the ad­van­tages of its dig­i­tal inkjet tex­tile print­ers to more cus­tomers around the world. The move will as­sist Ep­son in us­ing Ro­bustelli’s ex­per­tise to ac­cel­er­ate the de­vel­op­ment of dig­i­tal inkjet tex­tile print­ers that fur­ther en­hance the com­pa­nies’ abil­i­ties to meet cus­tomer needs with a wider line-up of prod­ucts. As part of the en­hanced ac­cel­er­a­tion, the two com­pa­nies plan to fo­cus on joint R&D ef­forts to achieve this goal.

The dig­i­tal tex­tile print­ing mar­ket world­wide is ex­pected to grow at an an­nual rate of ap­prox­i­mately 25%. In ad­di­tion to us­ing its man­u­fac­tur­ing net­work to meet this grow­ing de­mand, Ep­son will de­ploy its world­wide sales and ser­vice net­work to pro­vide Monna Lisa to more coun­tries and re­gions around the world.

Su­nao Mu­rata, COO of Ep­son’s Pro­fes­sional Print­ing Op­er­a­tions Divi­sion, is sched­uled to be ap­pointed as pres­i­dent of Ro­bustelli. Mu­rata com­mented, “This is a very ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment for the Ep­son Group. As the mar­ket for high-qual­ity dig­i­tal tex­tile print­ing ex­pands, I be­lieve that for­mal­iz­ing our part­ner­ship with Ro­bustelli in this way puts us in a great place to meet the needs of the grow­ing num­bers of cus­tomers who are seek­ing to lever­age the ad­van­tages of ad­vanced dig­i­tal so­lu­tions that will help drive their busi­nesses for­ward. We will work closely with our col­leagues at Ro­bustelli to take Monna Lisa to the next level and re­main lead­ers in the field.”

Lo­cated in Como, the heart of the Ital­ian and Euro­pean high-qual­ity print­ing tex­tile in­dus­try, Ro­bustelli spe­cial­izes in the de­vel­op­ment, man­u­fac­ture, and sale of dig­i­tal inkjet tex­tile print­ers, no­tably the Monna Lisa se­ries, which it be­gan de­vel­op­ing with Ep­son in 2003. This prod­uct has es­tab­lished a strong brand im­age by pro­vid­ing beau­ti­ful gra­da­tions and colour re­pro­duc­tion, win­ning plau­dits from cus­tomers.
