About us

Company details

Apex International, headquartered in Hapert, The Netherlands, is the leading manufacturer of anilox and metering roll solutions in the world. The company employs approximately 300 people and serves over 5,000 active customers in all markets (corrugated, narrow-web, wide-web, offset and coating applications) on a global scale. Apex operates five production facilities and seven sales offices worldwide, providing a local presence for customers and a global network to serve multi-location businesses and multi-national corporations. Apex products are approved and deployed by all leading machine manufacturers in the flexo and offset industry.

Not only did Apex pioneer the original 60 degree hexcell engraving, Apex also holds globally recognized patents on the award-winning GTT technology that uses continuous lasers to engrave a slalom pattern onto the anilox. The continuous laser is responsible for creating an anilox product capable of delivering the smoothest, most consistent and controlled laydown in the industry, which is especially important for printing optimized Fixed Palette. The Ink flow is more consistent and unobstructed, subsequently solving print issues such as spitting. With GTT, flexo printers can also streamline press operations across multiple facilities, reduce anilox inventory and variation, and reliably deliver consistent quality from the shortest to the longest of press runs.

Apex International will be participating in live demonstrations at several machine manufacturers. An up-to-date list will be provided at the Apex stand during the Drupa show.
