The Dutch graphic group moved into its new 2,600 m2 premises last year. This building is located at Fresh Park Venlo, the Netherlands. The coronavirus outbreak is making things difficult. Despite this, the demand for labels, tags, and index cards remains high. This company supplies all kinds of graphic products. "Many of our clients focus on supermarkets. That trade is continuing," says Nino Venezia.
"Many fruit and vegetable traders know where to find us now. We do labels and other accessories for them. We notice we are getting more demand from other parties in the market too. Our raw materials suppliers now have delivery times of up to four weeks. Our advantage is that we made timeous provision. We have a warehouse full of label materials. We can, therefore, quickly supply our clients, even in these difficult times."
"We spent a lot of money on materials. But we are now seeing how important it is to have enough stock. We have a continuous stock of packing materials. Some clients want us to take over their stock control. We can take this completely off their hands. The trading companies can, then, focus on their core business," says Nino.

The Dutch season has now started. It is, therefore, all hands on deck at Dutch graphic group. Nino's sons, Enzo and Gino, run the day-to-day operations. "Three to four weeks delivery times are, of course, crazy. Especially in the fruit and vegetable sector. Everyone knows strawberries come onto the market in spring. Yet, they all order top labels at the last minute. We have stock available. So, many fruit and vegetables come to us. That is how we grew from a regional supplier to a national player."
"A lot of companies trust us. We are a real family business with no overheads. That works in our favor. Clients talk directly to one of my sons or me. We have grown by staying small. We have, however, really professionalized our machinery in recent years. We work with the latest materials like LED technology-based printing presses. We now have three of the latest printing presses," concludes Nino.
