On 1 January 2018, the printing company Lesaffre was acquired by Delabie s.a. This printing company, located in Doornik, specialises in books and comic strips.
The market position of Delabie s.a. has considerably improved as a result of the take-over. Given that both companies complement each other with, on the one hand, the advertising and industrial printing, and on the other hand, the books and comic strips, the company’s future has been secured.
The take-over will double the workforce to no less than 150 members of staff. They will be working both in the printing section (sheet-fed and web offset printing) as well as in the finishing section.
The take-over also expands Delabie’s finishing processes to include full bookbinding. This is in addition to all the existing finishing processes: folding, die-cutting, stapling.
