Visit us at Heimtextil this week

At Heimtextil, Frankfurt Messe, Germany, from 9-12 January we’re showing seven new collections on our stand, G50 in Hall 4.1. Come and speak to us and discover our latest innovations!

The seven new collection archives being shown are Traditional Archive, Archive Florals, 30s inspired Wholesale, Modern Sherwood, Novelty Brights, Luxury Velvet and Contempary Florals named “Applethwaite Garden”.

Our Managing Director Stephen Thomas and other team members will be available over the four days of Heimtextil to show you the stunning displays which, all bar the conventional displays, have been printed digitally.

During Heimtextil, we’re also proud to be cementing a partnership with fabric printing digital production specialist Durst by announcing the creation of a Centre of Excellence at our Lancashire headquarters. We have recently invested in two more digital fabric printing machines from Durst. They are called Alpha 190 systems and are part of a new generation of super high-performance multi-pass printers with an environmentally-friendly pigment ink called Greentex P.

Stephen Thomas, Managing Director of Standfast & Barracks, said: “Our investment in Durst’s digital technology has transformed the market dynamics for our business and helped trigger a new wave of innovation. Most of our products at Heimtextil were printed using Durst technology – it’s brilliant.”

Mr Thomas added: “We are looking forward to driving forward this planned Centre of Excellence. Digital printing is by far our biggest growth area and gives us unlimited opportunities and colour variations. This is another huge step forward for our business.”

Martin Winkler, Segment Manager Durst Textile Printing, said: “Standfast & Barracks is incredibly proud of its rich heritage and, through Durst’s digital technology, it is showing the company is capable of even bigger and better things. It is a perfect example of how a respected company is pushing the barriers and innovation in textiles by investing in new technologies.”
