New Innovations and Offerings
Nanographic Printing Press
Elanders Germany was chosen by Landa Company as a European beta site for the new S10P digital printing press. The Landa S10P Nanographic Printing Press® is the first digital printing press with perfector in III-B format (750 x 1050 mm).
This unique printing technology from Landa enables top-quality printing on a whole range of different substrates. It can print on all paper grades common in offset, but also on plastics. No special pre-treatment of the materials is required. The achievable range of colors enables the reproduction of many special colors already in the normal 4-colour process and the reproduction of 97% of all Pantone colors in the 7-color processes without changing the inks.

Expanded Supply Chain
Elanders acquisition of German supply chain management company LGI Logistics Group International GmbH (“LGI”) was approved by German and Austrian competition authorities. The consolidation of LGI into the Elanders Group began at the end of July 2016. Through the acquisition, Elanders doubles its size to nearly 7,200 employees and annual net sales increased to around $1 billion USD (pro forma 2015 levels).
The acquisition broadens our customer base in Supply Chain Solutions to include customers in Fashion & Lifestyle, Industrial Manufacturing, Automotive, Healthcare, and Life Science. Together with LGI, we now have a completely new strongpoint in supply chain management as well as in contract logistics and this allows us to offer our customers more comprehensive global solutions. Our highest priority continues to be developing and creating new business with current and new customers that includes services from all our business areas as well as growing with our customer base geographically in the world.
