History

Zakład Poligraficzny POLPRINT was founded in 1990. Initially, 12 employees worked at two rented buildings with a total area of 150 m2, situated in Chociszewskiego Street in Inowrocław.  Two single colour printing presses (Romayor)  and a cutter (Krauze) were installed there and an offset prepress was established. The print shop was growing quickly, winning new customers and strengthening its position on the local market. Already in 1990 the third single-colour printing press (Dominant 715)  was purchased and a new cutter (Maxima) supplemented the stock. This enabled POLPRINT to increase production and improve print quality.

In April 1991, POLPRINT moved to a new location at Średnia 5 in Inowrocław, where it has been situated until present. The relocation improved working conditions and enabled the company to keep growing. In autumn that year the first two-colour printing press (Dominant 725)  and another cutting machine were purchased.

 

In December 1992, POLPRINT bought another Dominant 725 unit, a line for saddle-stitched binding and a folding machine. Another milestone in the company development was the commencement of the construction of a new building at Średnia 7 in August 1995. The building comprised a shop floor, welfare rooms and office rooms. It was completed in November 1995.   


In the following years, the company experienced a dynamic growth in production output, employment and investments. All printing presses were replaced with new five-colour Polly  and two-colour Heidelberg units.  In 1997 a gluing machine for cardboard boxes and a die-cutting press were purchased. This allowed an extension of the company’s product range with boxes for pharmaceutical and beauty products.

In the years 2000 – 2002, the printing house continued upgrading and expanding. In 2001, the conversion of the historical mill house at Średnia 5, where some of the facilities are located, was completed. The renewal of the building and the restoration of its original appearance brought the company a prize awarded by the local government of Inowrocław and an honorary mention in the nationwide competition for the Renovation of the Year 2001.  At the same time, another new building was constructed to house a bindery on the ground floor.

Further investments followed in the years 2001 – 2005 and significantly boosted the turnover and quality of the printed matter. Nearly all the obsolete equipment was disposed of. The Polly presses were replaced with a new generation of state-of-the-art Shinohara 74-V   . five-colour printing presses, imported from Japan. Their excellent technical specifications guarantee a top quality of print. Also, new post-press equipment was purchased: a Bobst SP 76-E  , die-cutter, a GUK folding machine  , a new saddle-stitched binding line  , a hot foil stamping machine   etc.

 

In 2006, POLPRINT acquired another building, located at Średnia 8,8  across the street from the headquarters. This enabled the company to extend the range of services rendered for our customers. After necessary alterations, the building provided more floor space for production purposes: a box assembly line and a binding area were located on the first floor, whereas the ground floor was allocated to a newly-formed die-cutting department, a storage area and the shipping department.

2008 is another key year in the history of POLPRINT. This was when a modern CTP image setting system for offset plates  was implemented on the basis of AGFA equipment, supplemented with a Fuji imagesetter in 2011. In 2009, a new Shinohara 75 VH-5  printing press with a dispersion varnish tower was purchased. All printing equipment, including the CTP system, were integrated within a new computer network. These upgrades translated into a substantial increase in efficiency and a further improvement in the print quality.

 In 2012, POLPRINT developed and introduced a method of marking products with individual alphanumeric and QR codes, and providing customisation of printed matter. The implementation of a digital printing technology to supplement the offset method extended the range of our printing services and let us accept non-standard orders. In the same year, the third line for precise cutting of labels (Perfecta) was added. 

In order to meet our customers’ needs and expectations, POLPRINT is continuously putting its strategy into practice, investing in new technologies, upgrading its equipment, production facilities and office areas. 

In 2004, the company obtained an ISO 9001:2000 QMS Certificate. All our printing services are provided in compliance with a quality management system, consistent with the current edition of the ISO 9001:2008 standard, as verified by BSI Management Systems.

Our customers include well-known international and European suppliers of food products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
