ROSELLE, Ill.-The M&R Companies wins two SGIA Product of the Year awards for the garment press and the pre-press categories. The M&R Challenger III holds the garment press distinction, while the company’s i-Image S Computer-to-Screen (CTS) system takes away the pre-press award.
“It’s extremely gratifying to have SGIA recognize Challenger III and i-Image S for their innovation and quality, and, by extension, to recognize the efforts of our research and development team and the highly-skilled technicians who build M&R equipment,” states Rich Hoffman, CEO of M&R.
Hoffman adds that the Challenger III is the “namesake of M&R’s first automatic press.”
“While the technological advances found in Challenger III could only be dreamed of then, the rugged construction and attention to detail remain unchanged,” Hoffman points out.
The award comes as the latest distinction for the company’s apparel decoration equipment. In early 2016, M&R took away multiple awards for machinery in the direct-to-garment, screen printing, and pre-press categories.
