AtéCé Graphic Products and Beijersbergen & Partners have many similarities when it comes to supplying high-quality consumables for the graphics industry and providing optimal services. Those forces are bundled. Beijersbergen & Partners will continue independently as an AtéCé company. "Both companies can therefore make the best use of each other's strengths, specialist knowledge and complement each other more than excellent," says Bert Schelhaas, Managing Director of AtéCé.
Bert Schelhaas: "The decision to come to this joining forces is twofold. Beijersbergen has a nice range for offset printers, but also for flexo printing. This range includes water-based & UV inks, lacquers and adhesives. In addition, Beijersbergen supplies high-quality systems on the Benelux market that add digital UV LED inkjet technology to existing flexo presses and digital production printers for applying cold foil, embossed and Braille effects as well opaque white, among other things. The total Beijersbergen product portfolio and the available knowledge of these products is a nice addition for AtéCé and fits well with our growth strategy. This allows AtéCé to offer its customers a wider range and even more solutions. Joining forces is also important for the development of our ink mixing service. With our offset and flexo inks programme for conventional, H-UV and LED UV and food packaging compliant applications, we want to be an important supplier and further strengthen our market position.
Beijersbergen will continue to operate independently on the Benelux market as a business unit with a permanent group of employees from its current location in Amersfoort and will continue to serve its own customers under the AtéCé umbrella. In time, it will be examined how the integration process of both companies can be completed best. Tom Kerssens will be included as Technical Director & Key Account Manager (Pressroom - Benelux) in the management team of AtéCé Graphic Products.
Tom Kerssens: "To continue as an AtéCé company and to be part of the international group of companies offers our customers nothing but advantages now and in the future. Just look at, for example, the AtéCé product portfolio with prepress solutions. A complete range, strong brands and a good service team with a lot of practical knowledge and experience. Our customers can certainly take advantage of this - and other AtéCé solutions."
