Speedprint Reports Strongest Year

Jan 07, 2012

Speedprint Technology, manufacturer of innovative SMT solder paste print machines, has reported its strongest financial results, despite investment into new markets.

Speedprint’s results have been fuelled by the increasing focus of customers on excellence in print quality combined with value for money.  In 2011 Speedprint entered the North American market with a direct operation headed by Mark Brawley, Speedprint Americas VP of Sales. The introduction of Speedprint in the United States is already ahead of the company’s plans and continues to grow in momentum.  At the same time, the success of the Speedprint products generally is generating increasing interest from China where the company has yet to establish a dedicated sales channel.

Derek Gaston, Group Managing Director of Blakell Europlacer, Speedprint’s parent company, said, “We are very pleased at the growth and progress we are achieving in Speedprint. Customers have a right to exceptional value and we are determined to meet that need. Although Speedprint is well established in Europe we are only just beginning to bring the product range to most of the global market and we are particularly excited about the opportunities to grow further into the US and Asian markets.”

Speedprint has direct operations in the United States and Europe and continues to grow its market presence through offering innovative technology and exceptional value for money.


Speedprint Technology became a division of the Blakell Europlacer Group of companies in September 1998. Following the acquisition and re-establishment of Speedprint, the group formed a new engineering team, many of which had years of experience with locally based printer manufacturers including DEK and SMTech, to develop and enhance the company’s portfolio of products. In keeping with the ethos of the Blakell Group’s desire to offer flexible and innovative solutions to the market, Speedprint is committed to delivering affordable leading edge stencil printing technology. The realization of this ambition is clearly illustrated by the company’s flagship avi range of fully automatic inline printers. Today, Speedprint operates from a hi-tech facility based in Poole, in southern United Kingdom.
