Haarlem-based Unfold works from a large industrial building, located in a large commercial zoning area. A common assumption for most production companies. What’s not so common, is that Unfold houses a huge range of heavy production printers, yet very few people to operate them. Owner of the company, René Spanger, does most of it all by himself. Just recently, he upped his own game and invested in a 3,20-meter-wide Mimaki printer with UV-curing. The UJV55-320 is a big whopper – crucial to be able to deal with the print demand at Unfold.
Founded by Mr. Edouard Borney in 1880, Borney started off in textiles, moving on to flags and banners in the 1920s, and finally expanding into printed fabrics in the 1980s. BorneyUK was established in 1993 and celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, as well as 138 years of growth for the company as a whole.
