European Funds

READ ME Printing House took part in a project co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund under the Regional Operational Program of the Łódź Voivodeship for the years 2014-2020.

Thanks to this, based on modern nanotechnology, we started the production of publications with bacteriostatic properties. The bacteriostatic properties of the products have been confirmed by laboratory tests by the Microbiological Laboratory of the Institute of Biopolymers and Chemical Fibers. This innovative production of book publications is possible thanks to the introduction of silver nanoparticles into individual copies.

Project title:

“Launching the production of publications with a bacteriostatic barrier thanks to the use of nanotechnology and on competitive terms, using the IT systems to optimize management and support the production chain.”

Project goal:

Increasing competitiveness and maintaining a high position on the market of book printing services.

Planned effects:

  • Employment growth;
  • Implementation of the results of R&D works;
  • Introduction of product and non-technological innovations.

Total value of the project: PLN 8,241,000.00

The amount of co-financing from the ERDF funds: PLN 2,948,000.00

As part of the project, the following were implemented:

Task 1: Construction of a production and warehouse hall.

Task 2: Purchase and start-up of a simple binding line.
