Grimco, ROQ.US to Expand, Elevate Decorated Apparel Industry Across U.S.
Print and sign industry leader Grimco and ROQ.US, leading supplier of cutting-edge automatic digital and screen printing equipment, are uniting to make ROQ machines widely available across the United States. The deal comes hot on the heels of another high-profile partnership with Inktavo, a provider of software solutions for the apparel decoration industry.
Established in 1875, Grimco has provided quality sign-supply products and excellent service to the sign and graphics community for decades. Today the company has over 65 locations across North America with multiple distribution centers.
Now, partnered with ROQ.US, the U.S.-based arm of ROQ International, Grimco will introduce a never-before-seen opportunity for the printing community in the form of a national centralized distribution of ROQ equipment.
The ROQ + Grimco joint effort will expand and strengthen the quickly growing decorated-apparel field with direct and local access to printing automation built to catapult production and dramatically cut the overhead ordinarily needed to compete at the top levels of the printing business.
“Our team at Grimco is extremely excited to partner with ROQ.US on a national level. ROQ has built a great brand based on quality and innovative engineering with the addition of excellent service and support. We look forward to meeting the needs of the garment decoration industry together,” said Peter Weinberg, Grimco’s Senior Director–Garment/Screen Division.
“Grimco’s consistency as a trusted brand in the market for nearly 150 years speaks for itself,” said ROQ.US President, Ross Hunter. “We couldn’t be more excited to partner with such a respected reputation and commitment to long-term success for the industry–something that is paramount to the mission of ROQ in North America and abroad.”
According to Hunter: “One of the biggest obstacles we’ve had to navigate since launching ROQ.US at the start of 2020 was having limited accessibility for current and potential partners to learn about what ROQ offers in person. Through our new alliance with Grimco, we’re grateful to officially have that obstacle behind us, so you can quickly become familiar with the game-changing printing automation that gets and keeps you at the top of the game.”
