What a difference a year makes!


Our review of Printwear and Promotion Live 2015 at the Birmingham NEC

Once again, another P&P show has come to a close and we have plenty to reflect upon. Amaya Sales UK and its associate companies have been exhibiting at the show since its beginning 26 years ago. but this year we had the best show ever and broke all of our previous records.

Without a doubt, the key to the success this year all stems from 2 major aspects; The first is that we have an exceptional team of people all working behind the scenes and on the stand to help our customers – we go above and beyond to ensure that existing customers are satisfied with our products and services, and many of our new customers from the show could see that was evident in our approach; many of them had heard about our company through recommendations from current customers, of which we are extremely grateful that they feel we are worth shouting about!Melco EMT16 Embroidery Machine

And of course, we feel that the second, and most important reason behind this year’s success, is that our products are outstanding. We’re extremely proud to distribute both the Melco EMT16 Modular Embroidery machine and the Texjet Plus Advanced direct to garment printer. We felt confident in the lead up to the show that these products were by far the leaders in the garment printing industry and the reaction we received at the show from visitors and exhibitors alike only cemented this knowledge in our minds.

From 2014 to 2015

A lot of the success we had last year came after the 2014 show had finished. Many of the visitors arranged demo’s in our offices and placed orders in the months following the show. One of which was the team at Glenmuir, who approached us to purchase six Melco modular embroidery machines to their production line, and ended up adding another 10 more Melco EMT16 heads which has helped them drastically improve their production of both larger production and smaller runs. This is just one example of how many of our customers, including big names within the garment printing and embroidery industry, are coming on board with our products because, quite simply, they are more efficient than any other comparable products on the market.  It really is true what we say: the right machine changes everything!

Over the course of 2014-15, we launched the Texjet Plus Advanced and the Melco EMT16, both of which have improved features from the previous models shown at last year’s show. But at this year’s P&P LIVE, we sold an unbelievable number of machines on the stand, and as the days preceding the show continue, we’ve been inundated with enquiries and more orders. We really couldn’t have predicted the success we’ve had so far and we’re humbled by the reaction from everyone. We’re hopeful that the rest of 2015 can continue in the way it has begun.

Texjet Plus Advanced Direct to Garment PrinterMany thanks to everyone who helped us this year. Special shout-outs need to go to the teams at Pencarrie (at The Academy), Ralawise and Beechfields  who did an excellent job of helping to promote our products and directing customers to our stand. And a massive well-done to P&P for putting on another amazing show at the NEC. There may be 12 months to go before the next show, but here at Amaya, we’re already planning on how we can top 2015!
