Siegwerk has signed a contract to purchase family-owned Tupahue Tintas, one of the Brazilian market leaders for flexo and gravure printing inks and varnishes located in Diadema (São Paulo). With this acquisition, Siegwerk expands its presence in the Latin American region and further strengthens its ability to serve specific local market demands. Since its foundation in 1989, Tupahue Tintas offers innovative ink solutions especially designed for serving the needs of packaging converters in the local market.
“With the purchase of Tupahue Tintas we add a well established ink provider with high quality products for packaging applications to the Siegwerk family,” says Andrea Serturini, President & Head of LATAM region at Siegwerk. “When it comes to packaging, flexo and gravure solvent-based are still the major printing processes used in the region. Combining our know-how and technology in these fields adds great value to our offering for the local markets.”
