Press releases about the Graphius Group
Zwijndrecht-based printing firm DeckersSnoeck joins Graphius Group: five Ghent-based print firms join forces on one production site. DeckersSnoeck’s site in Zwijndrecht will be moving at the beginning of next year to Oostakker, and some of the 70 jobs will go, according to CEO Denis Geers (Graphius Group).
Graphius N.V. is a recently founded holding company, which brings together a number of graphics firms: Geers Offset, Drukkerij Sintjoris, New Goff, Druk in de Weer and De Duurzame Drukker. The offset print works are using Graphius as an umbrella name, and using the underlying shared production facilities. Recently, all Graphius activities have been centralised at the site of Geers Offset, where the business premises have been enlarged to 12000 m². The site covers 25,000 m². The overall investment, including the production system, is some 8 million euro.
Graphius Group is the common name being used from now on by printing firms Geers Offset, New Goff, Sint-Joris, de Duurzame Drukker and Druk in de Weer. All five have been centralised on a single production site: that of Geers Offset in Oostakker.
Mayor Termont and Provincial Governor Briers opened the new Graphius print works last night. Five printing firms are operating under the umbrella name of the Graphius group, located in the new, expanded buildings of the Geers Offset printworks, the largest partner in the group.
