Waregem, Belgium—In today’s highly competitive global market, the need to reduce inventory costs, implement just-in-time manufacturing, meet consumer demands and many other challenges has motivated the development of new digital solutions. Barberan’s advanced digital printing and texturing lines combined with Unilin Technologies’ strong patent portfolio in this field are now delivering a comprehensive technical solution for decorative rigid board manufacturers, as Barberan joins the Unilin and ZeeTree partnership.
“We believe the time was right to join forces with Unilin Technologies,” said Eladio Lerga, Barberan. “Their early and continued research into this technology resulted in the first and most relevant IP relating to digital printing and texturing. They are a powerful ally and therefore ideally placed to license this technology into the decorative board market.”
Jasmine Geerinckx, Unilin Technologies’ business development director said the company is pleased to partner with Barberan. “It’s also good to see their successful implementation of our partner ZeeTree’s texturing technologies further enhances our cooperation with Barberan, and we look forward to welcoming other companies with relevant IP and technology into our cooperative partnership model.”
