About us

Our Story

Printing is an essential part of our work, but not the only one. We also master all those processes that are upstream and downstream of printing. The combination of lean, automated processes, state-of-the-art machines, and a motivated team makes the difference between an “ordinary printing company” and us. We have the ambition to constantly improve ourselves, to optimize processes, and to always set improved quality standards based on continuously growing benchmarks. This ambition and our unique know-how are appreciated by our customers worldwide.

    Sustainability

    Sustainability –
    genuine commitment

    There are not only economic reasons for the careful use of resources. We believe that this is also a general responsibility of all producers and consumers towards the environment and future generations.

    For us, sustainability specifically means minimizing the CO2 footprint of every product. How do we put this into practice? We purchase raw materials as recycled and regional as possible. This way, we are able to avoid long transport routes. We use carbon-neutral electricity and generate our own electricity at our production sites using photovoltaic modules. We consistently advise our customers to use environmentally friendly packaging solutions.
