ROQ International Comes to North America With New ROQ.US Partnership for Decorated Apparel Industry
Your creative and financial freedom enabled by reliable technological excellence positions your place in the decorated apparel industry to skyrocket in 2020. Such is the potential with the official launch of ROQ.US—the new arm of a decades-old pioneering legacy now serving North American partners.
Formerly announced to an estimated 14,000 attendees at Impressions Expo in Long Beach, Calif., the largest trade show for the screen printing and apparel industries in the U.S., ROQ.US is expanding what’s considered possible within the field. Started in a one-car garage in Portugal in 1984 and carrying unmatched reputation, ROQ.US and partners are catapulting screen printing businesses into outer-space success.
“This opportunity to work with our partners to build a meaningful movement has been incredibly inspiring,” said Ross Hunter, president of ROQ.US. “Being able to support and share the adventure with those we serve is a cornerstone of what fuels us each day.”
The goal is to serve as your creative sanctuary and benevolent slingshot for the community to come together and amplify what it means to be in the direct-to-garment and design space. With the flagship Ruckus Party, a star-studded music spectacle featuring the talents of artists like Mark McGrath (of Sugar Ray) and Sublime with Rome, ROQ.US strives to break open the decorated apparel experience.
“Closing this year’s Impressions Expo by witnessing MMA superstar Tito Ortiz give away a brand new ROQ screen printing press to winner Karen Fisher of Bag Wear Screen Printing was the highlight for us and the perfect kickoff for ROQ.US,” Hunter said. ROQ.US plans to continue its North American 2020 tour with Impressions Expo in Atlantic City, Baton Rouge, Orlando, and Fort Worth.
For over 35 years, ROQ.US has trailblazed the global textile, digital and screen-printing industries with cutting-edge innovation inspired by real-world application. The ROQ press fleet streamlines the most time-consuming aspects of screen printing and drastically reduces environmental impact while turbocharging overall production at significantly lower cost. When you build on sand, you drift away with the tide. When you build on ROQ, you stand on a solid foundation of integrity coupled with dependable automation for years to come.
