The final agreement for the amalgamation of Purup-Eskofot A/S (Ballerup, Denmark) and Barco Graphics (Gent, Belgium) having been signed, the merger process is proceeding as planned. Purup-Eskofot president and CEO William Schulin-Zeuthen has decided not to accept the offer to head the new company and will leave his post by June 30.
Bent Pedersen, Purup-Eskofot chairman of the board, commented: "We regret that William Schulin-Zeuthen will not head the new company. We are already looking for a new president for the company, which after the merger will be the world's second largest prepress company with some 1,300 employees and activities around the globe."
