As the leading independent supplier of wide-format and superwide-format printers, cutters and ancillary products throughout the UK, CMYUK has now received the accolade of becoming Berger Textile’s Top Performer of the Year for 2016. The distributor’s endorsement for this major material manufacturer and convertor confirms CMYUK’s continuing commitment to its growing customer base, all of whom rely on the highest standards of equipment and media in their production operations.

“We are delighted to be named Berger Textile’s top European performer as this clearly reflects our strategy for leading the way with innovative materials that cover every graphic application,” states Michael Crook, Commercial Director Consumables Division at CMYUK. “The Berger range is a fully certified series of textiles which enables users to generate high quality output on dye sublimation, solvent-based, latex and UV-curable prints, from stretch to backlit, and from block-out to wall wrapping. These applications augment more traditional textiles for canvas artwork and polyesters for theatre and displays.”

During the past three years CMYUK has built on its original reputation for supplying wide-format printers by becoming a recognised supplier and leader in the source and supply of innovative and new materials. The Berger product family quickly proved to be successful when matched with the company’s digital solutions, providing customers with the ability to fuel new ideas within the market.

“We are extremely proud to announce our award from Berger Textiles as recognition of the developments achieved by CMYUK. This versatile family of media clearly complements our growth within the wide-format hardware and material sectors,” states Jon Price, Group Director of CMYUK. “As a result, we are now ideally placed to make 2017 another record-breaking year. Further developments in key personnel and our growing product range will be announced very soon.”

Additionally, the Managing Directors of A. Berger GmbH have endorsed the CMYUK team’s achievements. “Despite all market challenges, the company was our partner with the biggest growth in 2016 and has consolidated the Berger products and brand in the UK,” comments Marc Nitsche, while Gerrit Rauch adds: “With the successful introduction of new media from A. Berger, a high level of professionalism and know-how in visual communication, CMYUK stands out as a very professional partner and we are looking forward to a successful continuation of our intensive teamwork.”
