On July 1st EFI made two announcements: One was the acquisition of the Israeli Matan Digital Printer, a supplier of grand format printing solutions and the second was the acquisition of Reggiani Macchine a supplier of high end textile printing equipment.

Held bi-annually, TexWorld USA is where fabric and garment manufacturers and local buyers meet to exchange ideas and place orders for the coming fashion season. Exhibitors from Asia, the Middle East, North America and many other regions showed textiles for use in clothing for women, men, juniors and infants. About 300 exhibitors from 17 countries were on hand at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City from January 19th to the 21st.
