Manroland Goss Group acquires THALLO packaging business

On December 17, 2020, DG press ServiceS B.V. and the manroland Goss Group signed a Letter of Intent providing a basis for a business collaboration with the regard to the Thallo press series for flexible packaging. This LOI was drawn up, after manroland Goss Group purchased the Intellectual Property Rights of the Thallo packaging business.

In 2014 DG press ServiceS B.V. launched Thallo press series, targeting the film & foil printing in hybrid sleeve offset technology. The base for that development was the successful VSOP press with over 90 installs worldwide in more than 60  countries, developed by DG press predecessor Drent Goebel. The VSOP press was the first to be equipped with cost effective sleeve offset technology in packaging printing, awarded with many prizes, including the Gold Ink award.

DG press ServiceS. B.V. developed with the Thallo the next generation sleeve offset technology. The manroland Goss Group complements its existing production portfolio for the web-offset packaging market with this film and foil packaging print technology, to strengthen its frontrunner position and ambitions with sustainable VOC free printing in the packaging market.

DG press will play an important role in the collaboration with manufacturing and project execution of the Thallo presses. “To get a customer up and running with hybrid offset sleeve technology in shortest time, involves a learning curve, and we have vast experiences in supporting this.” says Director Remko Koolbergen. “We are excited to join forces with manroland Goss web systems, and we are glad to contribute our market expertise in food packaging we have built up over decades”.

The manroland Goss Group is the leading supplier of web-offset printing solutions. The company provides System Solutions for highly automated press and post-press equipment with 24/365 service level .

It is amongst others, producer of the Varioman press for wide web packaging applications.

Franz Kriechbaum, CEO manroland Goss web systems GmbH, and Remko Koolbergen both agree: “the intended team play will create attractive offset solutions for all kind of packaging printers around the world”.
