Elanders expands its offerings in package printing
Contract for acquisition of Schmid Druck signed
Swedish Elanders Group has acquired German package printing company Schmid Druck + Medien GmbH & Co. KG. Schmid Druck, based in the small Bavarian town of Kaisheim, specialises in manufacturing unusual packaging and in custom special solutions for printed marketing materials.
With the acquisition, Elanders continues its strategy of advancing package printing in the niche product sector. The German location, which as the largest market plays an important and attractive role within the corporate group, is further strengthened as a result. Peter Sommer, Managing Director of Elanders GmbH in Waiblingen and the man in charge of the branches in Germany and all of Europe, is readily committed to continuing on this successful course.
This step represents a useful addition to the broad product range of Elanders Germany. As a result, the leading German media services provider will be able to meet customer requirements in even more individual and exclusive fashion.
