Big Picture

Sigmajet, the Czech Republic manufacturer of wide-format hybrid and flatbed UV printers, has announced the expansion of its business with the opening of a new US office. The new office will be based in Washington DC and will serve as the headquarters for the company’s US operations and its North American client base.

‘We are very pleased to become part of Washington’s vibrant and growing economy,” says Branislav Oravec, CEO, Sigmajet. “Being serviced by three airports makes it a great location to support the whole of the North American market as well as being great for travel and lines of communication to head office in Europe.”

“We’ve had over 10 years experience manufacturing high-quality industrial UV flatbed printers, so we now have an established user base of more than 200 printers worldwide, with an increased amount of interest coming from the US,” Oravec continues.

The company reports that the US expansion was prompted by the installation of a second Shark printer at a North American customer, coupled with Sigmajet’s planned global expansion strategy. The move, says the company, also supports the company’s drive for outstanding customer service, enabling the company to provide specialist local support to respond directly to customer demands quickly and efficiently.

SigmaJet is the former Grapo Technologies, acquired by a group of private investors in late 2011.
