At its headquarters in Brixen, South Tyrol, Italy, Durst’s research and development professionals work for and with international users to create highly specialised individual solutions for future market needs. Its know-how in ink technology, inkjet printing with piezoelectrical printheads – developed since 1998 for a range of inkjet printers for various application fields in the manufacturing sector – and its scientific research conditions have earned Durst a reputation as a pioneer in inkjet printing solutions.
‘Digital print is the heart of Kemtek’, said Gavin van Rensburg, CE Kemtek Print Solutions. ‘Our company has been at the forefront of digital technology introductions to Southern Africa over the past two decades and when Durst indicated its intention to increase its footprint in the region, we immediately recognised the opportunity. ‘Kemtek’s five branches and 26 technicians, positioned throughout South Africa, make it the perfect partner for the further expansion of our sales activity into the Southern African region,’ said Gerhard Gamper, sales manager for Durst.
Heading up Kemtek sales for Durst RHO systems will be Nigel Tretheway, ably assisted by representatives in each of Kemtek’s five branches nationwide.
