Growth Will Increase In the Market
Pimms Group Marketing Manager İskender Karaduman also gave his opinions about the company’s market expectations: “The company will perform strongly during the 2016-2017 period given the Euro’s decline in value against the US$ which is good for exporters as Europe reduce its procurements from the Far East. I think that we will go through a period when the EU, will increase its procurements from Turkey along with domestic economic growth driving demand. We expect this situation to strengthen all exporters during a period of 2 to 3 years. As PİMMS, we are confident that we will continue to grow this year as well and our sales will further increase”.
Mr. Karaduman indicated that they, as Mimaki, are a market leader in textile printing and this position will be further strengthened with the new models. He reported that the printer TS500P-3200, super wide format, can print up to 180 sqm per hour and will be an indispensable device particularly in the home textiles sector. Mr. Karaduman argued that TS300p-1800 model is an assertive and exclusive printer in the sector thanks to innovative fast electronic controls and Ergosoft software. He added: “In addition to these products; the UV-LED printer that can directly print on objects as UJF7151 (50x70cm) for advertising and promotional materials sector and UV-LED printer that can make flat printing as JFX200-2513 (250x130cm) present unique advantages well ahead of the competitors”.
