Print firm ex­pands in Ger­many

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

A printer and doc­u­ment ser­vices com­pany has ex­panded fur­ther into Europe after tak­ing over a Ger­man firm for an undis­closed sum.

Apogee Cor­po­ra­tion, based in Maid­stone, has bought print man­u­fac­turer and ser­vice provider Kopierver­trieb Rhein-Ruhr (KRR), based in Ober­hausen near Düs­sel­dorf.

Its new ac­qui­si­tion – founded in 2012 by manag­ing direc­tor Bernd Ruse and three oth­ers –is ex­pected to make sales of €4 mil­lion this year.

Apogee is al­ready Europe’s largest provider of print and doc­u­ment ser­vices and has taken over sev­eral com­pa­nies re­cently – in­clud­ing Clarke Of­fice So­lu­tions and Dan­wood this year.

Joint chief ex­ec­u­tive Ja­son Collins said: “We al­ready have an op­er­a­tion to the north in Hanover. KRR is ide­ally lo­cated in the heart of western Ger­many.

“Now it is part of the Apogee group, the new ac­qui­si­tion will give us great cov­er­age in Ger­many – and a strong hub from which we can con­tinue to grow across Europe.”
