Lappi Graphic Industries has acquired the production plant of Catalan printing company Gràfiques Llopart.
Following the acquisition, The Lappi Group incorporates the Rotatek Offset Printing Machine BRAVA 450, the only printing machine on the market that combines semi-rotary and rotary printing technologies. The BRAVA 450 features offset and flexo printing units, hot stamping, die cutting and embossing units.
