London, May 2015: Walstead Capital Limited, an affiliate of Walstead Investments Limited, owners of Wyndeham Group, has acquired the Spanish operations of Be Printers, Bertelsmann’s printing division.
The deal involves Rotocobrhi, a web offset printer based in Madrid, and Eurohueco, a gravure printer based in Barcelona. The combined business is the largest printer of long run commercial and publications products in Spain. The group specialises in the production of magazines, supplements, catalogues and flyers for the Spanish and European publishing, mail order and retail markets.
Rotocobrhi moved to its existing site in 2010 and is based in a 29,000 sq.m. facility outside Madrid. The company employs 314 and has a substantial press suite including two 80pp, three 48pp and three 16pp web offset presses. Eurohueco was established in 1984 and is based in a 22,000 sq.m. purpose-built freehold facility outside Barcelona. The company employs 253 and operates two KBA TR7 and two Cerruti RS35 gravure presses. Mauro Cosani, CEO of Be Printers’ Spanish division, will continue to manage the businesses and report to the Board of Walstead Capital.
Mark Scanlon, chairman of Walstead Capital, said: “The Spanish printing market has similar dynamics to the one we have experienced in the UK. Eurohueco and Rotocobrhi are well-managed businesses which have received high levels of investment. We believe we can increase their revenues by continuing to provide industry-leading service and quality, and extend their range of services."
Bertram Stausberg, CEO of Be Printers, said: “I am happy that we have completed this transaction with Walstead Capital. During our discussions it became clear that they will support and invest in Rotocobrhi and Eurohueco. This was a key prerequisite when we decided on the buyer.”
