Trust, Competence, Reliability
We are a medium sized ISO 9001 certified company that develops and manufactures high quality specialist products for the printing industry. Since our foundation in 1989, we have been setting standards throughout Europe. WS print is the European market leader in the production and distribution of silicone emulsions, silicone oils and fount solutions for the printing industry. We are a recognised partner of machine manufacturers, suppliers and FOGRA.
In April 2002, WS Print GmbH & Co. KG was acquired by Contiweb B.V., a specialised manufacturer of drying and web handling systems and provider of integrated technical solutions for web offset and web inkjet printing. With the acquisition by Contiweb, we can jointly expand our product range and continue to offer integrated solutions. Together we can help our customers reduce printing costs, lower energy consumption, minimise waste, increase uptime and improve performance.
Thanks to the many years of experience and the high level of expertise of our dedicated employees, we are able to develop sustainable, innovative and environmentally friendly products for our customers in our own research laboratory.
As a medium-sized company, we place great importance on a sustainable relationship with our partners. We have worked with many of our customers for many years and maintain close personal contact. We excel at providing excellent service directly on site through our print technicians, who accompany the use of our products in the application.
We - WS print - take our responsibility for sustainable, innovative and ecological products seriously and are aware of our social responsibility towards our customers as well as our employees. With expertise, competence, reliability and down-to-earthness, we will continue to be a reliable partner for you in the future.
