Derprosa, a Spain-based supplier of specially coated films, recently opened its Derprosa Speciality Films warehouse in Newark, NJ, USA. This joins existing facilities in France, Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom and Mexico. The opening is part of the international expansion strategy that Derprosa is currently implementing.
For the last few months, the Derprosa Speciality Films warehouse has allowed the company to serve customers in the US market directly, allowing them to acquire small quantities of film in the country without the need to import material they might need from Derprosa’s headquarters in Spain, as was previously the case. This location allows the company to offer a faster service to customers in the United States.
The need for this new facility arose from the great demand for material that exists in the USA among the different markets that Derprosa serves. Derprosa Speciality Films currently serves different sectors that have experienced a growing demand for products: the luxury packaging sector (specifically luxury folding cartons), book publishing, digital printing, large-format printing and the labeling sector.
Derprosa is the creator of SoFT TOUcH Matt technology, as well as latest generation films like the Matt Anti-scuff, a "finishable" film, meaning one that can be glued, printed on and given a finish. Within the range of products created by Derprosa, there are films with anti-bacterial properties and special metalized films, ideal for digital printing, as well as the products from its Elegance line, films with different colors and special top coatings that can be printed on and finished with different technologies depending on the different applications desired, such as boxes and cartons, catalogues, labels, POS display, book covers and more.
