Epson Italia is acquiring the textile printing business Fratelli Robustelli. Epson has worked with Fratelli Robustelli to provide digital inkjet technology since 2003. The company is anticipating the acquisition to drive synergies and provide added value at a time when the digital textile printing market is expected to grow by 25 per cent annually.
The companies have been working together to promote digitalization by building the total solution support structure from development through manufacture, sales, and after-sales support.
Formalizing its partnership with Robustelli in this way puts Epson 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.
As a result of the deal, Robustelli will join the Epson Group and tap into Epson’s manufacturing capability, expanding its offerings to more customers around the world. Epson will be able to use Robustelli’s expertise to develop digital inkjet textile printers and offer customers a wider lineup of products. Together, Epson and Robustelli plan to focus on joint R&D efforts. Further, Robustelli products will be sold by Epson’s worldwide sales and service network.
Epson Italia is part of the Epson Group. Epson Italia handles sales and marketing of Epson products in Italy and oversees sales in Turkey, Greece and the Balkan area.
