M&R, Nazdar Announce Partnership

(PRESS RELEASE) ROSELLE, ILLINOIS / SHAWNEE, KS — M&R Printing Equipment, North America’s largest manufacturer of printed apparel decorating equipment, and Nazdar Ink Technologies, developer, manufacturer, and innovator in the field of Aqueous, UV Curable and Solvent-Based inkjet inks and fluids, announce an exclusive Development and OEM Supplier Agreement for M&R’s POLARIS High Speed Industrial Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing System, and QUATRO Direct to Film (DTF) Transfer Printer.

Under the agreement, M&R and Nazdar are expanding an existing relationship that began several years ago with the joint development of the high-performance SAPPHIRE Inks used on the Polaris DTG Printing System to include an ink set for M&R’s recently released QUATRO DTF Transfer Printer. Additionally, M&R has executed an OEM Supplier, and Global Logistics agreement to ensure an uninterrupted supply of these inkjet products for M&R Customers and Dealer Partners.

Danny Sweem, M&R CEO said, ”while these types of OEM supplier relationships are very rarely made public, we felt that that our customers would benefit in knowing that M&R was combining our 38 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of high-performance printed apparel decorating equipment, with Nazdar’s more than 100 years of experience in the development of specialty inks and coatings for textile, graphic and industrial applications.”

Richard Bowles, Nazdar Company president and CEO said, “We are proud to work with our partner, M&R, to develop and deliver inks for their industry-leading equipment. The long-standing relationship between our two companies has been the foundation for our successful innovation of the Polaris and Quatro digital apparel inks. Presenting the Nazdar Ink Technologies brand next to M&R’s is an exciting step forward to instill confidence in the customer through our shared dedication to high-quality standards. We look forward to partnering with M&R to develop solutions to meet the future needs of the digital inkjet apparel market and facilitate even greater performance and productivity going forward.”

Supply of M&R Sapphire Inks and Quatro Inks is strictly through M&R authorized dealer channels.
