Sawgrass Industrial, the business division of the Sawgrass group operating in sublimation and pigment inks for industrial applications, is joining JK Group, the company which includes the brands Kiian Digital and J-Teck3, to extend the group’s technology capabilities.

As a division of the Sawgrass group – well known innovator and pioneer in digital sublimation with a large portfolio of intellectual property rights – Sawgrass Industrial is a leader in the high-end market of digital sublimation and water-based pigment inks with a wide portfolio of brands, including SubliM and M-Inks. The main applications addressed by Sawgrass Industrial’s products are fashion, sportswear and home décor. Sawgrass Industrial is present mainly in Europe and the Americas, serving key clients both directly and through dealers.

Kiian Digital, J-Teck3 and Sawgrass Industrial have in common a track record of innovation, quality, reliability and are regarded as trusted commercial and technical partners of companies that supply top brands in over 100 countries worldwide. Together they create the largest industrial digital sublimation group with leading technologies, a global presence and a world class manufacturing capability for textile applications.

The CEO and Founder of Sawgrass, Nathan Hale, explains, “We built the digital sublimation business starting in 1988 and expanded into industrial markets a decade ago.  Now that digital mass production is a reality for printing onto textiles, this is a perfect time to form a strong alliance to deliver on what was just a dream.”

Agreement between the parties was expected to commence from the end of July.
