With Asia-Pacific Engravers (APE) in Kuala Lumpur, Janoschka created its first foothold in the Asian market in 1998. The company was formed as a joint venture in cooperation with Interprint, one of the world’s leading decorative printers, and serves as an operative platform for further expansion into the Asian market.
APE is known for its strong customer service and high quality and is now considered a market leader in Malaysia for reproduction and cylinder engraving. Offering a broad range of services from graphics through to form manufacture, APE works with companies in the packaging, tobacco and decoration markets as well as a variety of printers in Asia.
Its 50-strong team produces 12,000 gravure cylinders a year (of which about 10% are direct laser cylinders), 2,000 reproductions and 10,000 colour separations.
