Durst and Standfast & Barracks have announced plans for a Centre of Excellence in the UK at the fabric printing company’s UK headquarters in Lancashire. Little more than two years after a devastating flood that closed the factory for more than four months, Standfast & Barracks has cemented its partnership with Durst with an investment in its new print and ink technology. The fabric printing company has installed two Alpha 190 systems, part of a new generation of super high-performance multi-pass printers with the One-Step Pigment Ink Greentex P. These, together with the creation of a Centre of Excellence, will continue to drive digital textile growth for Standfast & Barracks, which has already returned to similar business levels since before the flood.
