Machine: M&R Sprint Dryer
From Dave Roper
Tell us a bit about your business
We brand for the tourist market plus contract and some online since the late 1980s.
We also do embroidery and digital, in fact we do almost everything in-house to do with textiles, and a small amount of poster printing.
What dryers did you buy?
We use all M&R machinery; last October we got two of the latest Sprint dryers along with another 10-head Sportsman plus the latest direct-to-screen printer. The dryers cost £28,000 each. They are up to date tech-wise, and they are easy to use and maintain: hit two buttons to start and away they go until closing time!
What are their advantages?
We have five M&R printing machines along with the Sprint dryers. Since we’ve introduced the dryers we’ve found that they have helped reduce our gas bill a lot as they are far more economical to run – the ones they replaced were over 20 years old.
What would you say to others thinking of buying a dryer?
Anything to do with M&R is going in the right direction in my eyes regarding reliability and service plus holding their value.
