Miro Ivsan: Our worldwide headquarters - and major production site - is in Taiwan. Our European headquarters is in the Netherlands, while we have daughter companies across the world, including in the US, China, Japan and Malaysia.
Back in Europe, we have a professional distribution network that we operate with chosen partners, and stateof- the art slitting facilities, which we operate globally with our partners.
We manufacture and supply a very large range of foils for many different applications, components and surfaces used in graphic industries. Our metalised foils are particularly brilliant, and are deliverable in a large range of gold and silver shades. For example, we offer high gloss, satin, matt and super-matt finishes, as well as partly metallic shades. Whatever we do, we refuse to compromise on the quality and range of our patterns.
To give you one example, we are able to develop exclusive customised holographic designs for our clients. This could be anything from company logos - combined with different holographic effects - to hidden security textures included in an existing pattern. In addition, we have a large range of standard holographic and lens patterns in our portfolio.
For us, quality and stability are the most important things in high-end markets, which are the areas we tend to focus on. Only this allows us to meet our clients' requirement, which in turn lets them meet their own clients' needs. At the same time, we constantly try to improve our services, allowing us to develop innovative and interesting products.
Our unique selling point is that we offer an extremely customer-oriented technical service. For example, we offer our customers consulting advice about possible foil applications, as well as after sales support. More broadly, because Univacco is based in Taiwan - which is a costeffective area to manufacture high-quality foils - we are far more competitive than many of our competitors across the Western world. Not that we are geographically limited; our large professional network enables us to work anywhere.
Our high-quality products and sustainable operations are evidenced by our range of quality certifications. For instance, we comply with ISO9001 and ISO14001, as well as several FDA demands - no wonder our greenhouse gas emissions are as low as they are. In part, we are able to do this thanks to our state-of-the-art coating facility, which lets us metalise, slit and store foils. Of course, we do all this with a strong sense of social responsibility, and work to fulfil all our health and safety requirements.
We have a new site – which will be around 10,000m² – under construction in the Netherlands. We are working to make the site environmentally friendly, making sure it complies with the industry's 2030 sustainability goals. For example, the factory will need only minimal amounts of energy to run smoothly.
More broadly, we are developing several new product lines, and will keep expanding further into new markets and countries. And, of course, we are careful to do all this sustainably.
