Durst Group, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, has announced that Vanguard Digital Printing Systems, a U.S. company acquired last year and headquartered in Lawrenceville, Ga., is establishing its European branch in Brixen, Italy.
Vanguard Digital Printing USA is a manufacturer of printing systems for the signage, decoration, business equipment, industrial and packaging sectors. With the formation of Vanguard Europe GmbH, Vanguard will now also offer its wide format portfolio in the European markets. Despite the acquisition by Durst Group, Vanguard remains an independent company under the leadership of founder and CEO David Cich. The choice of the Brixen location, in a building adjacent to the Durst headquarters with over 5,000 square meters of factory space, is intended to leverage technical and administrative synergies between the two companies.
The official market launch of the Vanguard printing systems in Europe will take place in October at the Viscom 2021 trade show in Milan and FESPA 2021 in Amsterdam.
