Marabu acquires Clearstar Coatings and establishes a base in the USA
Marabu GmbH & Co.KG, one of Europe's leading 3rd party ink manufacturers for the screen, digital and pad printing industries has announced that it has acquired the assets of USA- based Clearstar Coatings Corporation, a leading manufacturer in the production of liquid laminates and inks for digital printing.
Stephen Berman, founder and President, joins Clearstar L.P., the US operating company, as General Manager.
The acquisition of Clearstar is an important step in Marabu's growth strategy, further enhancing the firm's digital product range. Clearstar's high-quality liquid laminates and digital printing inks add an important product portfolio for Marabu. In addition, this establishes Marabu's physical presence and adds a manufacturing facility in the important American market. But the acquisition goes beyond the manufacturing capability. "Having Stephen Berman on board means having one of the most knowledgeable persons in the sign industry on our team," said Dr. Roland Staehlin, Marabu's Printing Ink Managing Director. "Stephen brings more than 25 years of experience to our group."
Marabu digital and screen inks are distributed by Sefar in Australia.
