Epple Druckfarben AG, Neusäß, one of the leading producer of offset printing inks and varnishes in Europe, has taken shares in Pulse Printing Products Ltd., Bristol, a leading UK manufacturer of coatings and adhesives. In doing so Epple raises the business with its English sales partner to a new level.
