Durst Group has acquired Aleph SrL, a pioneer in sustainable digital solutions for textiles and interior and exterior decorations. “With this strategic move, Durst Group further enhances its position in water-based and sustainable printing technologies,” said Durst, a manufacturer of digital printing and production solutions.


Established in 2000 in Lurate Caccivio (Como), Aleph has transitioned over the last 20 years from a software house and distributor of textile consumables to an independent manufacturer of innovative machines for digital water-based printing.

“In 2017, Wise Equity entered Aleph's capital with the Wisequity IV fund, alongside the three historical entrepreneurs Alessandro Manes, Roberto Manes, and Roberto Temperini, to support the progressive internationalization journey, with the goal of positioning itself in special applications in both the textile industry and adjacent sectors such as billboard printing,” Durst said. “Today, the company generates over 60% of its revenue abroad in more than 20 countries."

Christoph Gamper, CEO and co-owner of Durst Group, said: "We are delighted to welcome Aleph into the Durst family. Their expertise in sustainable, water-based applications, their software for high-end textiles, and their creative solutions for water-based poster printing align perfectly with our vision of pushing the boundaries of digital printing technology. Together, we will strengthen our market position, expand our product portfolio, and enhance value for our global customers."

Aleph SrL CEO Alessandro Manes: "Collaborating with Durst Group marks an exciting new chapter for Aleph. Our shared passion for technological innovation, the pursuit of excellence, and the commitment to true sustainability define this collaboration. Together, we have the opportunity to make significant advancements in the digital textiles, exterior, and interior decoration sectors."

“In recent years, markets for digital printing technologies with water-based ink applications have experienced rapid growth, driven by increasing demand for environmentally friendly and customizable products,” said a press release. “To meet this market trend, not only high-performance printing systems with eco-friendly ink systems are necessary but also extensive process knowledge and integrated software solutions, which both companies aim to combine optimally through this merger.

“The strategic acquisition aims to leverage synergies between the two companies by combining Durst Group's global presence and extensive procurement network with Aleph's expertise in sustainable digital solutions – both machines and software – for textiles and decoration. This seamlessly aligns with Durst Group's strategy to diversify its portfolio and meet the evolving needs of its customers across various industries.

“Both Durst Group and Aleph are committed to ensuring a smooth transition for their customers, partners, and employees during the integration process.”
