Agfa to Close Italian Plate Plant

July 08, 2013

Agfa Graphics announced it plans to close down its printing plate factory in Manerbio, Italy. The plant produces analogue offset plates as well as negative CTP plates, both products of which are in markets in decline.

“This decision is part of our strategy to improve our operational efficiency, margins and competitive position in the highly competitive prepress market,” says Stefaan Vanhooren, President of Agfa Graphics.

The Manerbio closure will affect 123 employees; Agfa says a redundancy plant is being developed for them.
