Our Mission: Because our tomorrow is already driving us today

A high quality demand on raw materials and inks, agility in thoughts and actions and an outstanding service: these maxims are how Epple convinces its customers. Our efforts to achieve this quality result in an equally high demand for sustainability. Hereby, Epple consistently unites economic interests with ecological and social requirements.

Therefore, Epple supplies market-shaping products that fulfil all requirements regarding printing quality as well as those concerning the health and safety of employees and customers. They are the result of intensive developments in the field of sustainable ink systems. Epple is a genuine pioneer, which already in 1993 presented itself as the first producer of a mineral oil free sheetfed offset ink (Eco ink), which was based on renewable raw materials.

“We, as a family company, believe sustainability occupies a very important position. We live this statement in environmentally friendly products, with responsible behaviour and a sustainable management. This is how we want to meet everybody’s demand: our own, those of the customers and of the society. We see ourselves as obligated to the coming generations in this regard.”

When it comes to climate protection, Epple follows a comprehensive package of measures. As early as 2004, its environmental management system was certified according to DIN EN ISO 14001:2005. Selection of materials and processes in production are optimised in a targeted fashion with a view to protection of climate and resources.

As a responsible employer sustainability is an important strategic success factor for Epple, which is acted out and driven forward every day in the company.
