As of February 1st Starleaton completed the acquisition of the Uniscreen Australia business. Established in 2004, the Australian arm of the Uniscreen group is primarily focused on supplying sublimation papers and inks.
Early this year Starleaton completed talks with Uniscreen Owner and CEO Ross Clarke to take over their Australian distribution. Over the last few weeks the Starleaton team have been undergoing extensive training on the new range to begin the immediate introduction to their customers.
In particular they are excited to gain access to the Coldenhove sublimation papers. CEO Ben Eaton says: “Coldenhove are the industry leaders and inventors of digital sublimation transfer printing papers, so to be able to add their range to our current offering is a real bonus for us. With the Epson F-series, EFI FabriVu, and Georg+Otto Friedrich fabrics already covering the direct to fabric market for us, a quality transfer paper was the missing link.”
Starleaton will also continue to supply the full range of Kiian inks and Transmatic heat presses.
Existing customers of Uniscreen Australia should see a seamless transition to Starleaton, and the range will be introduced to Starleaton’s existing customers over the course of the coming months.
