DCS Appoints Rowmark Australia as an Authorized Distributor Direct Color Systems (DCS) appoints Rowmark Australia to be an Authorized Distrib- utor to offer its line of small- format direct-to-substrate and d i re c t - t o - g a r m e n t U V- L E D inkjet printers and supplies in New South Wales and western Australia. "Partnering with DCS will allow us to provide our cus- tomers with an extensive selec- tion of printer models," says Rowmark Australia CEO Cory Bourne. "Our industry continues to evolve, advance, and to seek new technology to comple- ment engraving equipment. We believe extending our North American partnership with DCS will be invaluable to our Aussie customers who are looking for growth opportunities." Rowmark Australia cus- tomers were invited to see DCS's technology in action at an open house event Thursday, November 10 through Saturday, November 12, 2016. The event featured demonstrations of DCS's patent-pending direct- to-garment printing for light and dark cotton, polyesters, blends and synthetics with no pre-treatment required, as well as its patent-pending UV-LED Braille signage printing. "We are excited to extend our partnership with Rowmark into Australia," says DCS Presi- dent Blair Allen. "Our industry expertise combined with Row- mark's superior service in this market will be a great value to our customers." Trotec Relocates Headquarters to Larger Space in Plymouth, Michigan Trotec Laser announces the relocation of its headquarters in Canton, Michigan to a larger facility at 44747 Helm Court in Plymouth, Michigan. A couple of miles down the road from their former facility, the company headquarters features 25,000 square feet of warehouse and office space, according to Trotec Marketing Manager Patricia Steding. The search for an ideal location to house its main office began over a year ago. "We needed a larger space because we wanted to increase the amount of inventory we could house and office space, too, because our team has grown quite a bit," Steding tells A&E magazine. "(The need for more space) is a good problem to have." The facility will also host a larger applications lab for customers to attend demonstrations and open house events. "One of the big reasons was to increase the applications lab," she explains. "We have many large-format machines that require a lot of space. Customers will have more opportuni- ties to see our machines in action." As Trotec takes the next step in physical growth, Steding predicts the company will continue on the path to success in the future. "Right now, we're trying to accommodate growth that's already happened, but we absolutely expect to be growing in the coming year," she boasts. "We have a lot of new products coming out and we'll be launching all kinds of things." The big move also comes on the heels of the unveiling of Trotec's redesigned website on September 7, 2016, featuring an updated look, user-friendly navigation, and faster web performance. At the time of publishing, the company is planning to host an open house celebration on January 26, 2017, holding informal workshops and demonstrations for customers eager to see the new facility. "We invite everyone to come see our machines, and of course, our new facilities," Steding says.
