For two years, Epple Druckfarben AG and Pulse Printing Products Ltd. have followed a successful partnership, having previously appointed Pulse as the exclusive UK distributor of the Epple ink range. Pulse is a leading independent UK manufacturer of coatings and adhesives, and the Epple ink range will further enhance the consistently high-quality products and services that their customers rely on.
Against the background of further internationalization and the growing export business, Epple has expanded its strategic partnership with Pulse as a contract manufacturer of Epple varnishes. In the course of Epple taking a share in Pulse, the combination of Pulse’s products and the printing inks and consumption materials from Epple is achieved. The previous recipes and products from Epple will be retained and developed.
“From the beginning, this relationship is founded on a shared philosophy of providing high-quality products to the UK print market,” said Gunther Gerlach, chairman of Epple Druckfarben AG. “Here we take another step forward by acquiring shares in Pulse. In the partnership, we want to benefit from synergy effects, created through joint business activities and the exchange of know-how.”
“The two companies will work closely together to provide a high level of technical knowledge and support to the UK ink market, with qualified sales staff and second level support through the Epple application technology team,” added Gary Sheppard, chairman of the Management Board of Pulse Printing Products Ltd. “Pulse can benefit from the joint network and an expanded product portfolio to position itself even better in the market.”
