Benchmark International is delighted to announce the acquisition of Printglaze Group (Printglaze), comprising of Printglaze Limited and Printglaze Packaging Limited, to Dublin-based PrintG.
Printglaze has been providing a wide range of services to the commercial print industry since 1979. It has extensive experience in print finishing, including spot UV, foiling, embossing, and other techniques, along with a specialisation in innovative packaging solutions.
PrintG is a consortium of print companies headed by Paddy Burke and Mick Heavey.
The strategic move supports PrintG’s long-term growth strategy and strengthens its position in the industry, allowing it to offer an enhanced range of services to its customer base.
Paddy Burke, shareholder at PrintG, said: “This acquisition enables us to tap into the Printglaze Group's expertise and expand our capabilities, offering our customers a comprehensive suite of tailored solutions to meet their evolving needs. It will enhance our ability to collaborate and innovate, empowering us to develop new products, explore market opportunities, and better serve our clients across various sectors.”
Alex Cregan, Associate Director at Benchmark International, said: “There has been significant consolidation in the printing and packaging markets over the past number of years, with larger entities looking to acquire in order to grow inorganically, making Printglaze an ideal fit for PrintG.
“It was a pleasure to work on behalf of the shareholders of Printglaze. Best of luck to Paddy Burke and Mick Heavey going forward.”
Benchmark International advised Printglaze on the deal. John F. Kelleher provided the sell-side legal counsel.
