Adapt, part of the Vink Group, has reached an agreement to supply seven models from the Epson SureColor printer range in the UK.

The company, which has offices in both Manchester and Nottingham, describes itself as the British sign and display sector’s leading supplier of roll media, inks and wide-format machinery. It will now be able to offer its customers the Epson SureColor SC-S40600, SC-S60600, SC-S60600L, SC-S80600, SC-S80600L, SC-R5000 and SC-R5000L printers, as well as Epson OEM inks.

Hardware sales manager James Argent already had a longstanding relationship with Epson prior to joining Adapt in 2021. ‘I’ve worked with Epson for around ten years,’ he explained. ‘In fact I’ve had a relationship with them ever since the original SureColor was launched.’ With this in mind, once Mr Argent took up his new position this new arrangement was a logical step for all concerned. ‘Adapt already has contacts across the signage market,’ he continued. ‘And that means we have lots of potential customers for the Epson SureColor printer range.

‘For example, we run lots of vehicle wrapping courses at our training centre in Nottingham and offering this range is a natural progression for us. A lot of the customers who come on our courses are only just starting to explore the possibilities that print has to offer and the Epson portfolio is a great way for them to take those first steps. For Epson’s part, they are looking to broaden the range of partners they work with when it comes to signage and, given the large client base we can offer across the entire Vink group, it’s a perfect match.’

Phil McMullin, head of sales, commercial and industrial printing at Epson UK, commented, ‘We are excited to welcome Adapt as our latest value-added partner for our signage printer range. With an excellent media proposition and true national coverage, the Adapt organisation will bring award-winning Epson technology to an even wider customer base.

‘We have also invited the Adapt team to host prospects with us on our stand at the Sign & Digital UK event to showcase our technology to interested parties. Customers will be able to see a demonstration of one of Epson’s most recent large-format printer introductions for the first time in the UK.’

Adapt will be offering customers everything from demonstrations to training and installation services, as well as long term support and maintenance. The company already boasts longstanding relationships with major players in the industry including Mactac, Kernow Coatings, Canon, HP, Mimaki and Summa.
