Heidelberg has acquired Belgian printing chemicals supplier BluePrint Products NV to expand its portfolio of printing chemicals and consumables.

BluePrint, based in Sint-Niklaas, southeast of Antwerp, offers a range of dampening and wash-up products for sheetfed offset presses, including lines of environmentally progressive products.

 

“BluePrint and Heidelberg have already worked together closely in the past,” said Peter Tix, head of Consumables at Heidelberg. “Under the umbrella of the Saphira portfolio, we’ll be continuing to develop the BluePrint range of consumables for print production while maintaining the highest standards in terms of the environment and reliability.”

Heidelberg previously expanded its consumables portfolio with the acquisition of UK coating manufacturer Hi-Tech Coatings in 2008. “We’re looking to become the world’s leading supplier of consumables in our industry in the medium term,” said Harald Weimer, member of the Management Board responsible for Sales and Heidelberg Services.

Sales of BluePrint products outside of Heidelberg’s customer base will be continued and are also to be expanded.
