Etipol acquired
by industry leaders
Etipol, the manufacturer of semi-rotary presses based in Taastrup, Denmark, has been acquired by three pioneers of the graphics industry.
In April, the Danish company Dan-Mekano assumed the ownership and the name of Etipol. Simultaneously, three men acquired one-third each of the shares of Dan-Mekano, and thereby also of Etipol. They are Jes Hilfling, Ib Grønberg and Lars Eriksen. Grønberg is founder of Dan-Mekano, and Eriksen is president and owner of Nilpeter.
“We now have a strengthened position in the market, both technologically, financially and with respect to know-how — by virtue of well qualified and motivated employees,” says Hilfling, the new managing director.
“Etipol’s product program, consisting of intermittent letterpress and offset presses, the Combi models, fits very well into the trend of ever smaller runs in the label industry, and forms a perfect complement to the full rotary presses from us,” adds Eriksen, chairman of the company.
“With Dan-Mekano’s background of specialized, tailored solutions combined with a line of standardized presses, we stand much stronger in the more competitive, globalized market,” comments Grønbjerg, Etipol’s new technical director.
