There are many things to reflect on as 2023 ends, and we look to our 80th anniversary in 2026. Yes, we are approaching 80 years of servicing the corrugated industry as the premier anilox roll supplier. Many things have changed in this time; however, one thing remains constant, and that is Pamarco’s culture of service. Our global team has obviously changed over the years as the next generation joins our seasoned technical team, but our service level has never faltered, and our collective knowledge allows us the privilege of being the go-to resource for this growing industry.
To ensure Pamarco’s ability to service this growing market we have made significant investments in our European footprint in 2023. This includes the acquisition of a base manufacturing facility in the United Kingdom to further enhance our ability to service our expanding customer base quickly and efficiently. Delivering the highest OEM quality, directly to the OEMs or to the end users for spares and replacement rolls. To further complement this growth and to position ourselves to service our customers on continental Europe we have acquired TLS Anilox located in Salzkotten, Germany. Andre Willeke and the TLS team will be joining the Pamarco family, to provide the same level of service and quality that both organizations are known and respected for. The TLS manufacturing location has unique technology that we’ll be sharing with you in the coming months.
Our expansion does not stop with investments made in our European divisions; we are also significantly committed to strengthening our businesses in the Americas. In early 2024, Pamarco will be installing new laser capability in our Atlanta, Georgia, location and in our La Palma, California, location. This added capacity combined with previous expansion, in our newest facility located in Batavia, Illinois, will ensure that Pamarco can provide superior quality products to our expanding customer base throughout North, Central, and South America.
Those of you that have invested in digital print or are of the many that will make the investment, Pamarco is ready to service your needs regarding pre and post coating.

So, if you have questions or a desire to expand the offering to your clients, we’re here to provide the technical knowledge, helping you get the maximum impact from your digitally printed work.
