Interprint Strengthens Finish Foil Competence

Guido Schweizer appointed CTO of the Xelio Business Unit of the international décor printer

​The décor printer Interprint has increased its competence in the finish foil area with a new executive appointment: Guido Schweizer will strengthen the Xelio business unit, Interprint's business unit for finish foil, by taking on the position of CTO (Chief Technology Officer) with effect from 1 October 2015.

Guido Schweizer assumes the overall technical responsibility for finish foil production and engineering worldwide within the scope of Interprint's international group operations. Besides the strengthening of human resources, Interprint is also increasing the production capacities of the Xelio business unit at the Ozorków location in Poland: the third varnishing plant is currently being put into operation.





  • ​Guido Schweizer is a qualified engineer with profound knowledge of gravure printing and varnishing. After his apprenticeship to become a gravure and offset printer and his printing technology studies, he joined the Süddekor company as Project Manager in 1996 and later had various positions at that company.

    With Guido Schweizer, our Xelio team gains a real expert in this area. We look forward to further expanding our finish foil business unit jointly with him.


From 2001 to 2003, he was Factory Manager at the former WKP company as Factory Manager and was able to extend his knowledge in the EBH area there. He was responsible for factory management in Süddekor's finish foil business unit from 2003 to 2010. The integration of the WKP company into Süddekor's finish foil factory was the main focus of his work from the end of 2008 to mid-2010. After this period, he managed the varnishing and release paper business units until December 2014. Guido Schweizer worked for the Nolte Lacke company as Application Engineering Manager until September this year. The product range of that manufacturer comprises, for example, water-based varnishes, UV varnishes, printing inks and décor foil varnishes. Guido Schweizer's main task at that company was customer consultancy in varnishing product applications. Guido Schweizer is 43 years old, married and father of two daughters.

Managing Director Holger Dzeia is pleased about the headcount increase in Interprint's important business unit: "With Guido Schweizer, our Xelio team gains a real expert in this area. We look forward to further expanding our finish foil business unit jointly with him."
