Danish company Stibo Complete installs world’s first Vanguard VK3220T-HS
Stibo Complete, one of northern Europe’s largest and longest-established signage graphic companies, has been announced as the world’s first customer of Vanguard VK3220T-HS high production LED UV digital flatbed printer with 15 printheads. The deal with Vanguard Europe in collaboration with local partner Antalis will ‘significantly increase’ sales of Stibo Complete and provide up to 70 percent higher output, as well as cut down on outsourcing. Vanguard VK3220T-HS, first launched in a world premiere at the recent FESPA 2023 Munich in May, has been installed at the headquarters of Stibo Complete in Horsens, Denmark.
Employing 500 people and with three factories in Denmark and two in Sweden, Stibo Complete has utilised Antalis services for many years. “I have tested different brands in the flatbed market, and the Vanguard VK3220T-HS came out strong in all tests – quality, productivity, and on the drying characteristics at high output,” said Henrik Mølgaard, Production Manager at Stibo Complete. “With between 45 and 70 percent higher output in the flatbed segment than today, it gives us the opportunity to significantly increase sales of flatbed products and at the same time reduce the use of external suppliers,” he added. Formed in late 2021, Vanguard Europe is the European subsidiary of Vanguard Digital Printing Systems Corporation, Lawrenceville, USA. The company has its European base in Brixen, Italy, close to its parent company Durst Group’s global headquarters.
