A firm which can provide all types of packaging solutions under one roof and fulfil the needs of clients, be it small or big.

What is the trait you most deplore in our industry?
The craze for turnover without profit is the trait I deplore the most in our industry

Gold lacquer on PE silver and gold lacquer on overprintable silver foil with reverse white have been my trickiest colours

Which print job made you the happiest?
September 2018 where we printed 60 variants for a food company

Describe your day?
Meeting clients, discussing projects and solutions, and lots of travelling\

What is your most ‘wow’ moment (print / non-print)?
Installing a nine-colour Gallus ECS-340 press was a dream come true
