Nilpeter Celebrates 100 Years of Innovation
May 1, 2019 will be a special day at Nilpeter Headquarters in Slagelse, Denmark, as the company celebrates its 100th anniversary. Founded by two old friends in 1919, Nilpeter started out servicing newspaper printing machines in central Copenhagen, before launching its first semi-rotary printing press, The Simplex, in 1924, which in various versions remained part of the company’s product range until the 70s. With the introduction of the self-adhesive substrate, Nilpeter targeted its business towards the label market, and the rest is history.
