Default Newsflash?!? NeoFlex going out of business?!?

I just spoke with a NeoFlex sales rep about the possibility of purchasing a NeoFlex 800 and was told they are not able to get the Epson parts to build this printer and he immediately started trying to sell me an Epson F2100.

After 20 minutes of telling him I don't WANT an Epson F2100, he tried to sell me a Ricoh Ri 1000.

What the heck?

Is there any truth to what he told me? I've been looking at NeoFlex 800 videos and marketing pap all weekend and was really excited to see one up close.

Chris

I went by All American's booth at ISS Atlantic City last March NeoFlex is indeed no more - the company under new ownership from what I was told at the booth, and the DTG printers I saw there were all Epson-brand.

Justin Walker is normally in tune with all of this, maybe he can chime in.

I spoke with another sales person today from All American (might have been the sales manager) and he told me they are not able to source a single board out of Korea that is preventing them from building more NeoFlex 800 printers.

He also told me Epson doesn't want people making modified-Epson DTG printers, which makes sense, but I'm not going to buy an Epson F2100 if I can't purchase parts for the machine and am tied to their expensive inks.

Hmmm, I think my first DTG design will be:
EPSON
OBEY

Epson pulled this crap before. They doubled the price of their print heads and then restricted delivery of them. One of the reasons I sold me DTG and moved on.

Wondering if they still have bases in stock...
I mean the base unit with the "bed".
As all other parts we can source from an Epson 3880/4880 printers, but the base unit is made by AA...

iwonder if any one has considered that a reason they may not currently be able to get parts is the asian tariffs? after all they sai they can't get them, not that they weren't made anymore

Epson has withheld parts from the market before to hurt DTG competitors. Tariffs just mean the price goes higher.
