INK Maloberti: New to the range – Metal Decoration inks

New sales partner in the area of special inks

Epple Druckfarben AG has expanded its leading position in the German offset printing inks market in the area of special inks: the printing ink experts are now working together worldwide with the renowned specialists from INK Maloberti from Italy, in the special area of Metal Decoration.

"Epple Italy 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" explains Gerhard Janssen, Head of Sales at Epple.

Metal Decoration inks: brim full of experience

INK Maloberti has been successful in the offset inks sector for decades and has strengthened and specialised itself on thermal and UV Metal Decoratings as well as relevant coatings. Their passion for and competence in Metal Decorating inks is easy to explain: Armando Maloberti, a former Metal Decoration printer, founded INK Maloberti in 1953. His son Alberto Maloberti steered the company in the new millennium and Augusto and Alessandro are the new generation.

Epple and INK Maloberti: united for quality

Epple and INK Maloberti have already presented themselves successfully at Metpack, the international trade fair for metal packaging, in 2017, in Essen. The high level of competence inherent in both firms in the sector of foodstuff packaging is a conjoining factor and the sector provides a significant contribution to the overall production volume when it comes to Metal Decoration inks. Know-how and responsible production are vital here, as Alessandro Maloberti, Metaldeco specialist at INK Maloberti, knows: "Our special and really unique Metal Decoration products complete Epple's range for sheetfed offset packaging inks ideally. 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." This quality awareness is demonstrated in excellent processes, as Maloberti elaborates: "The quality system for mulitcolour process printing at INK Maloberti has been used as an example by numerous other companies: continuous production control, ink evaluation with the help of highly developed spectrophotometric methods and simulation tests.” When it comes to service, an ink mixing station ensures quick deliveries to the customers.
