Vic Bay has taken the leadership position in the African market by acquiring the first Kornit Storm HD 6 system on the African continent. This is the third Kornit system in a successful three year partnership between Vic Bay, Rexx Screen & Digital Supplies and Kornit Digital.

Mike Shiller, Owner/MD from Vic Bay in Johannesburg is excited that this new vertically integrated system enables his customers to get the superior quality, softest touch and unique technology – leading the way in DTG in sub-Saharan Africa: ‘We can now deliver full colour top quality prints on garments in a matter of minutes. The patented technology in Kornit’s platforms put them in a class of their own.’
