Major investment programme initiated at the Rodenberg and Jülich locations. The new production hall adds another 11,000 sqm floor space to the Rodenberg plant. Beside the brand new five-colour high-quality flexo inline machine and an additional flatbed die cutter, the entire plant is equipped with cutting-edge conveyor systems to ensure fully automated, efficient operation upstream and downstream of the production and processing gear. This modernisation effort has helped to entrench the plant as a centre of excellence for the just-in-time production of high-grade multi-colour flexo- and offset-printed sets of packaging and displays. At the same time, the Jülich location saw the arrival of a large-format flatbed die cutter and automation investments being made.
