GLEN ELLYN, Ill.—The M&R Companies won four Product of the Year Awards at November’s SGIA 2015 in Atlanta. M&R products receiving the award and their respective categories include the M-Link X, Direct-to-Garment Printers; the Stryker, Automatic Garment Press; i-Image XE, Pre-Press; and the Kruzer, Manual Garment Press.
“Our engineers and the other members of our research and development department are engaged in an ongoing effort to find ways to help garment decorators work more quickly, more productively, and more profitably, and it’s extremely gratifying to have SGIA validate those efforts,” says M&R CEO Rich Hoffman.
“Developing a direct-to-garment printer with unmatched image quality and the speed to compete with other fast printers was challenging,” he adds. “But the real challenge was to bring the selling price in at about one-third the price of competing printers. The members of our research and development team faced many hurdles, but they were convinced it could be done.”
