HISTORY


In 1946 Rik Matthys started his own printing company in the historic graphic city of Turnhout. This grew into a real family business and quickly established itself as an offset printing company.
In 1984 it was Ludwig, the eldest son's turn, to start his own business: the "Turnhoutse Photogravure". He also managed to develop a progressive and successful company in a few years time.
In 1998, both family businesses decided to combine their activities under one name and, under the leadership of Ludwig, to form a solid foundation for the success of the company that has since been transformed into "Grafische Groep Matthys". We look to the future with confidence, because in the meantime Ludwig's four sons guarantee the continuation of this success story.
