This decade saw a period of acquisitions with the first being the purchase of the colour printer Eurografica
to service the expanding colour printing market.
The entrepreneurial flair continued with the acquisition of two ailing print companies ((Litovelox e Lit) which were combined to form LegoPrint
. Litovelox invested in the first ever Timson web press to be installed in Italy with this machine replacing most of the work produced by the mono sheet fed presses over the following year.
Hard work, along with an extensive investment program and moving into a state of the art new plant (in Lavis, north of Trento) allowed the web division to grow into a flagship operation.
During this period the pre-press began to move into the digital world with LegoPrint being the first company in Italy to install a CTP (computer to Plate) supplied by the Swedish company Misomex.
Expansion continued during these years with the construction of a 14,000 tons (8,300 pallets), fully automated paper warehouse.
The family tradition continued with Rosa, now Managing Director, joining the company in 1997 (Picture left) with Giovanni following in 2001.
In 1999 Stampa Digitale was born and was based at the LegoPrint site. This division was set up to produce low run mono paperback books using ink-jet technology. A unique feature is that they are able to sew books in the traditional manner.
