According to Print Week, Spandex will work alongside Zünd’s UK-based subsidiary, whose headquarters in St Albans is home to both its UK service engineers and spare parts.
The move is an expansion for Spandex. It scored the deal as a reseller for SwissQPrint’s UV flatbed printers in November 2011 and apparently the way that worked caught Zünd’s interest.
Zünd UK sales director Peter Giddings said that SwissQprint was founded by former employees of Zünd’s printer division and the two companies, share a similar pedigree and policy.
Steve Pridham, Spandex UK specialist, said that the addition of Zünd’s cutters to its range of SwissQPrint UV flatbed printers would allow Spandex to supply “full turnkey solutions” to any UK digital print business.
Zund does have a few other US dealers that it uses too.
