Elaine Campling explains the raison d’être behind rewarding the drive for print excellence
ESMA will launch a new Approved Supplier scheme during EcoPrint Europe 2012 in September. This Approved Supplier scheme was developed in support of the customers of ESMA Member companies (Members) who asked for some way of demonstrating that they purchase from reputable suppliers that are producing quality products and services.
ESMA was founded in 1990 as the Association of European Manufacturers of Screen printing equipment and supplies.
ESMA is a non-profit making organisation, funded by members to work on behalf of them and their customers. In 2000, ESMA extended membership to companies manufacturing machinery and consumables for the digital imaging market. The ESMA membership now includes many of the major European manufacturers of machinery and consumables produced for the specialist printing industry, accounting for a significant proportion of products and services supplied to both European and global markets.
This year, ESMA opened its membership to consultants and print service providers, further expanding the representation of ESMA.
