“The Heidelberg litho press and Heidelberg finishing press acquired in 2017 allow higher quality and quicker turnaround times during production. These Heidelberg KORS and Heidelberg GT presses are classics and still work very well.”

“Efforts to control VOC (volatile organic compounds) in perfume production could be scaled down thanks to proprietary micro-emulsion-based technology that we have introduced. This decreases the ethanol content and allows compositions to be compliant with USA and EU air pollution laws.”
