Our Story

The company’s foundations root back to 1976 in Thessaloniki, Greece, where Nikos Benglopoulos, a visionary of his time, sought out to educate businesses and help them grow. Selling screen printing machinery and consumables at the time, he made it his mission to help small businesses advance by teaching them how to print. At that time the region of Northern Greece was one of the biggest production hubs for famous European clothing brands.

Quickly adapting to market demands (late 1990’s) for the fast production of small quantities cost-effectively, the company steadily turned to innovative digital printing technology for the solution. Standing out from the crowd, Polyprint was founded in 2003 and sold textile printing equipment (dye sublimation and roll-to-roll direct-to-textile printing machines).

A pioneer of its time, Polyprint continued its innovative path by investing in direct-to-garment printing technology and unveiled its first TexJet dtg printer, at the 2005 SGIA show, in the US. Since 2006, Polyprint has been devoted to dtg technology by designing, developing, and manufacturing printers with the brand name TexJet®.
