“Epple Italia has started well in the demanding Italian print market; the quality of Epple’s printing inks has been very well received by the customers. What will make it even better is that we now have a further Italian partner on our side and that we are able to expand our range with the metal decoration segment and can offer this outside of Italy as well. We are working closely together in sales and technical customer support, as partners with INK Maloberti, a company rich in tradition, from Cormano nearby Milan. Our competences complement each other perfectly,” explained Gerhard Janssen, head of sales at Epple.
INK Maloberti has been successful in the offset inks sector for many decades and has strengthened and specialized itself on thermal and UV Metal Decorating as well as relevant coatings. Their passion for and competence in metal decorating inks is easy to explain: Armando Maloberti started to work as a metal decoration printer and founded INK Maloberti in 1953. His son Alberto steered the company from the 19602 into the new millennium and Augusto and Alessandro are the new generation.
Epple and INK Maloberti have already presented themselves successfully at Metpack, the international trade fair for metal packaging, in 2017 in Essen.
“Our special and really unique metal decoration products complete Epple’s range for sheetfed offset packaging inks ideally,” Alessandro Maloberti, Metaldeco specialist at INK Malobert, noted. “We were able to enter the cooperation with very positive expectations, as we know that both companies have the same high demands regarding product quality, service, sustainability and enthusiasm for innovation.”
