With 13 factories spread out over five countries, CPI is one of the major players in the printing market in Europe. We produce books and printed documents for major publishing houses, large industrial groups and service companies, and administrative bodies.
With an impressive heritage – a rich industrial past, featuring prestigious printers such as Firmin-Didot in France (1713), Ebner & Spiegel in Germany (1817) or Mackays in the United Kingdom (1857) – CPI is the first European printer to have invested in digital inkjet printing. Today, at the heart of the transition to digital, we combine our industrial power with innovative computerised solutions to create even more value for our customers.
CPI is a French group founded in 1996 and is owned by Private Wealth Office of entrepreneur and award-winning private investor Richard Hughes and his family (RHWO) (52%), the Banque Publique d’Investissement (25%) and private investors.
We operate production processes that respect people and the environment.
Our commitment to environmental protection goes beyond regulatory obligations such as paper traceability (all of our printers are certified FSC) and waste recycling. We invest in reforestation programmes and are developing a “zero emission” policy in some of our factories.
We attach particular importance to the training of our staff through continuous training programmes in all countries where we operate. In 2015, CPI opened its Training Centre for Careers in Digital Printing in France, which is open to all of our employees and students.
