The Swiss manufacturer of high-end large format printers, swissQprint, has established a new subsidiary in the UK. swissQprint UK is based in Bracknell, Berkshire and provides sales, servicing and application support. 


The new premises include a brand-new demonstration centre featuring the latest innovations from swissQprint including the new Karibu roll to roll printer and the Nyala 3 flatbed printer, along with sales and marketing offices and a warehouse for consumables and spare parts. 


The new UK subsidiary has already assembled what looks to be a successful team, headed up by managing director Erskine Stewart. Sales in the North will be handled by Ian Maxfield and Steven Pridham will look after business in the South. Service manager Simon Averell provides strong support to the installation base alongside service technician Keith Apps. Jenny Williams is operations coordinator, and Annamaria Horvath, application engineer, is responsible for the demonstration centre, application support and sampling service. 


Mr Stewart says the entire team has undergone extensive training at the company’s Swiss headquarters and is now ready to offer machine demonstrations, printing tests, technical support and maintenance. “swissQprint UK will provide direct, comprehensive and fast service to the UK market while development and production remain in Switzerland,” he states.


“The UK is a very important market for swissQprint,” continues Mr Stewart. “Our mission is to continue to provide our customers with ongoing expert service for them to get the best out of their investment, while at the same time growing our market share in the commercial printing arena. We will also be increasing our focus on the packaging, specialist print and industrial sectors where I believe we can also be extremely successful.” 


swissQprint UK is providing the sales, service, sampling and application support to the greatest extent possible, following the latest government COVID-19 guidelines.

"This represents great news for the UK market. Especially for those looking to invest in Swiss quality printing machinery. Put simply: If swissQprint was to manufacture beer, it would probably be considered by many to be the best in the world."
