CCL Industries president and CEO Geoffrey Martin said: “We are pleased to expand our highly successful CCL Design operations in Asia, adding in-mould decorating and technical screen-printing technologies, as well as strong sales and project engineering resources throughout the region.

“Our key people have known SEP for some time, and welcome all their employees to CCL.”
