Offset prepress service provider Merlin has been supplying directly engraved elastomer coating plates for the surface finishing of folding cartons since 2013. In 2019, the company added a PremiumSetter S1000 to its production equipment, resulting in a number of significant advantages over the previous processes.

The Group is also actively involved in publishing, producing successful trade journals for all kinds of sectors. Its wide-ranging portfolio covers everything from agency services and data processing to imaged offset printing plates.
