Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala is celebrating its 20th anniversary!

On 2013 November 1 one of the leading polygraphy companies Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala was celebrating its 20th anniversary.

The beginning of  Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala Ltd. can be traced back to October 26, 1993 when JSC DIENA established a new structural unit Diena-Repro -- it was one of the first repro studios in the Baltics.  Following the market trends, in 1996 newspaper printing was started. Year 2006 was a period of new challenges when a production of magazines using the most technologically advanced Japanese printing machine was started.

In the course of time, Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala Ltd. has become the largest printing house in Latvia that is printing newspapers and magazines. The company is paying even more attention to expanding its role in the export market and as a result the export amount is increasing each year. Now the products are exported to 10 countries, including Russia, the Netherlands, Spain, Norway, Germany, etc.

The printing house has been as a pionner - we were the first to start printing coloured daily newspapers, we first had a newspaper and magazine completing machine. We were one of the first who operated in the digital printing segment. The company has always strived to search for new challanges. Thanks to a productive collaboration with our clients and trustworthy employees, it has become a successful poligraphy company.

In 2013 year Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala Ltd. had bought a new soft-cover book gluing machine Alegro. This is one of the most modern and innovative gluing equipment. It was bought from the Swiss company Muller Martini which is a long-term equipment supplier to Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala Ltd.. We will unveil the new equipment during the celebration.

Poligrāfijas grupa Mūkusala Ltd. together with JSC DIENA already for several years is participating in the charity project "Saulainas dienas" (Sunny Days). This tradition is continued also in year 2013 by supporting reconstruction of the Oncology unit of the Children's Hospital. In honour of our jubilee we in our printing house have prepared and printed colouring books as a special dedication to children. We will grant these books to the Oncology unit of the Children's Hospital, children and youth centres as well as to boarding schools.

Company's turnover has increased from LVL 0.25 million in 1994 to LVL 9.7 million in 2012. Total investments during these years have reached LVL 11.6 million.
