Established in Copenhagen by Christian Nielsen and Axel Peterson, the business is still owned and managed by the descendant Eriksen family.

Over the last 100 years, the company has grown to employ 450 people and establish a customer base in 65 countries worldwide.

As well as manufacturing flexo presses, the firm also offers a narrow web offset model and more recently, a digital inkjet engine that is available as a stand-alone unit or inline as a flexo/digital hybrid.

Nilpeter oversees 100% control of production from raw steel machining to after sales support, and all functions in between. Today, the majority of sales are to multi-national groups within the high-tech packaging industry.

We are seen as a specialist innovator of added value techniques. As the market has consolidated and become more specialised, so our product portfolio has become more diverse to allow us to support products from flexible packaging to cartons, and linerless to in-mould applications

Commenting on how far the company has come, global sales manager at Nilpeter, Jesper Jørgensen says: “We are seen as a specialist innovator of added value techniques. As the market has consolidated and become more specialised, so our product portfolio has become more diverse to allow us to support products from flexible packaging to cartons, and linerless to in-mould applications.”

Nilpeter has a longstanding working relationship with fellow Danish manufacturer Vetaphone. Both companies are acknowledged as pioneers in their particular fields and both are still family owned and managed.

“We congratulate Nilpeter on their centenary of achievement and are proud to have been one of their trusted suppliers for many years – we look forward to enjoying even more joint success in the future,” says Frank Esiby, chief executive officer of Vetaphone.
