Investing in a UK-based organisation will empower Kornit to address the growing need for sustainable on-demand production, and reflects the brand’s strategy of enabling proximity production.

Online retail sales in the UK nearly doubled from 2013 to 2019, reaching more than £76 billion last year – making it the third-biggest e-commerce market globally (following China and the United States). Chris Govier, Kornit Digital managing director, EMEA, said:

“We’ve seen substantial growth in the United Kingdom in recent years and owe a great deal of success to our partners. “A dedicated UK distribution hub will ensure faster and more efficient service to our growing customer base, maximising our customers’ uptime and productivity, and we look forward to building upon our success as the pre-eminent provider of digital print technologies to this largest of European markets.” The reseller agreement with Adelco has been terminated, and Kornit will assume all these customer relationships directly. Kornit will maintain its strong partnership with Amaya, which has established a considerable footprint as a textile print solutions provider to the British textile decoration community.

“Looking ahead, we believe that we are at one of the most exciting times in our company’s history, as the mega trends in our industry have accelerated the transition to digital textile production where we are in a position to benefit.

“For Kornit, we believe this inflection point will drive a v-shaped recovery in the business as we help brands and strategic partners quickly adopt agile, digital, and sustainable on-demand textile manufacturing.” Guy Avidan, chief financial officer, added: “We are very excited by the huge opportunity we see in the market that has resulted in an unprecedented pipeline and very good visibility. The team is highly engaged with new customers as well as strategic partners’ system implementations that will not only drive system revenue over the coming quarters but will also create long-term demand for ink and services. As we head into the back of 2020, we are focused on a strong finish to the year and committed to profitability for fiscal 2020.”
