The market in which Roto Smeets Group has operated for a very long time has changed greatly in recent years. Information flows are being increasingly digitised and consumersí information requirements demand ever faster turnaround times.
RSG has adapted to these developments by investing in content solutions based on new technologies at MPG and Dock35 and by consolidating capacity at the printing plants. By always acting in time, RSG has been able to maintain the financial health of the organisation.
After the closure of Roto Smeets Etten at the end of this year, three printing plants will remain in these divisions: Senefelder Misset in Doetinchem, Roto Smeets Weert and Roto Smeets Deventer. This compact organization and the fact that RSG delisted last year calls for a retrenchment of the organization and overhead reduction. The indirect functions of these three plants will be merged to create a single new division in which also the holding company activities will be accommodated. In this division the plants can make optimum use of the other available services which they can offer the market. These services have been brought together in Dock35 and provide customers with solutions for marketing and the production, exploitation and publication of media. Ronald van Rossum, the current division director of Publishing Services, is appointed as Managing Director of this new division with effect from 15 July 2016.
The result will be a compact, efficient Roto Smeets Group organisation with two divisions.
In the period ahead work will take place to overhaul the positioning of the activities in this division of Roto Smeets Group B.V. The full integration will be completed in 2017.
This change will have no effect on MPG, which will retain its own position and continue with the broadening of its services and international expansion.
