Antoni Contijoch, fundador de Gràfiques Manlleu

A short history of Gràfiques Manlleu

The Gràfiques Manlleu printing press was founded by Antoni Capdevila Contijoch in 1919. The founder’s family has continued to own and run the business ever since. Initially, it was a small typographical workshop meeting the needs of a small town with just over 6,000 inhabitants.

We are currently members of the Join Specialist in Labels European association of printers
