Bruce started in the industry in 1993 in dye sublimation. Bruce was able to strike up a conversation with Monti Antonio heat presses and started to represent them in Australia and has never looked back. Bruce has a wide range of knowledge of Dye sublimation and with Pozitive also heavily involved in this area of the industry it was a perfect fit for Bruce to join the team and to bring across all his knowledge of the Monti Antonio brand. Bruce is excited to be part of the team and share his knowledge of the industry and continue to promote the dye sublimation industry. It is an industry where dye sublimation the applications are wide and varied and limited by the customers imagination.
