Apex International Enters the Embossing Industry

Apex International is excited to announce the acquisition of Keller Dorian and Panhuizen as we continue to revolutionize the global embossing industry with cutting-edge technology and our world-famous culture of innovation. Advanced embossing company Keller Dorian has been serving customers since 1872 and is now combining their esteemed heritage and cutting-edge technology with Apex’s strong history in anilox roller manufacture.

Uniting the expertise of Keller Dorian and Panhuizen with Apex’s will bring their award-winning embossing technology, already used by over a thousand loyal customers, to the next level on a global scale. With this new acquisition, Apex can now offer embossing customers an improved laser system, providing designs with greater form, clarity, and ability to carry out innovative techniques that would have never been possible before. Apex International is now able to also offer an end-to-end service to customers who previously would have had to work with several suppliers to carry out the necessary various embossing techniques.

“Apex has for years recognized the global demand for a single source supplier that can offer all the different embossing technologies under one roof,” says Apex chairman, Ken Ralton. “This acquisition gives us more opportunities to offer innovation, technology, and value to embossing clients from around the world.” Having identified the global demand for Keller Dorian and Panhuizen’s products, Apex has invested over $20 million in the past 18 months as we work to meet demand and continue to be a leader in cutting-edge embossing technology.

Both Keller Dorian and Panhuizen will now fall under the Apex Embossing name. Both companies’ award-winning graphic design centers are known globally for their top-of-the-line products, and by combining master embossing craftsmen with Apex’s unrivaled laser research and development, the embossing industry will never be the same again. Embossing has traditionally been used across all industries, including construction, fashion, and paper products, but as the technology continues to develop, Apex sees unlimited possibilities for growing the reach of this versatile technology.

Apex International is proud to welcome the Keller Dorian and Panhuizen teams into the family as we look toward an exciting global future for us all in the embossing industry.
