Morgana will be a wholly owned subsidiary of Plockmatic. The Swedish firm’s CEO, Jan Marstorp, will head the new group. Morgana will maintain its offices in Milton Keynes, UK, where Quen Baum will continue as Managing Director.

Plockmatic is the leading supplier of in-line booklet making systems custom designed for the mid-range digital print segment. Plockmatic also manufactures a range of off-line booklet makers sold through independent distributors worldwide and a versatile mail-feeding system available through distributors and OEM partners.
Plockmatic International is part of Grimaldi Industri Group, a diversified Stockholm-based holding company.
“The acquisition of Morgana gives us access to the product development, technology and distribution capabilities we need to reach more customers all over the world,” said Salvatore Grimaldi, owner and CEO. “I’m delighted to welcome Morgana to our group of companies.”
Jan Marstorp of Plockmatic adds: “For a long time we’ve had enormous respect for Morgana’s people and its products. Together, these two innovative companies add value to the printed page as part of the communications mix.”
