At the same time sales volume increased by 10% to 1.1 billion m2. The substantial growth came mainly from the finishfoils produced in Poland and marketed globally under the Xelio brand name as well as the significant expansion of treating volumes at the Russian and Brazilian plants.

In addition, production capacity at the group’s main plant in Arnsberg was extended by commissioning a new rotogravure printing press. Apart from that, there is currently an extension building being constructed that will house all service functions.

Despite rising raw materials prices, Wrede Group, Interprint’s parent company, expects profitable growth for financial year 2018.

Largest individual projects at Interprint are additional printing presses in the USA, Russia and China as well as the completion of the extension building in Arnsberg.
