3M transfers its Post-it business
As of 1 May 2013 3M, the diversified technology company, has transferred its European Post-it Products promotional materials business to Michael Schiffer, a leading innovator in the printing industry.
Michael Schiffer will handle production and become responsible for the marketing and sales of the entire range of Post-it Products promotional materials in Europe. The new business model is said to be designed to build on the strengths of both companies - 3M as a manufacturer of high quality Post-it materials and Michael Schiffer as a printing and converting expert.
Mark Hodgins, leader of 3M Consumer division in the UK and Ireland, says: "With this step, we will be supporting our trade partners for promotional materials by offering shorter reaction times, a broader range of materials and even better customer-specific solutions, and this will at the same time also be strengthening the Post-it brand."
"Customers will benefit not only from shorter communication paths, but also from a more comprehensive range of services and products."
The Michael Schiffer group, comprised of the companies; Michael Schiffer, Schagen & Eschen and PreMedia, is a pan-European supplier of innovative printing solutions for the communications sector. It has been working with 3M in Germany since 2009.
