A journey of two decades:
DERPROSA
in Latin America
In 1998, DERPROSA™ began
their commercial voyage in Latin
America. Although they did not
have internet or smartphones
at the time, they were armed
with innovative gloss and matte
films that were welcomed in the
region. The company continued
to grow over the years, gaining
recognition throughout much
of Central and South America,
including El Salvador, Peru,
Colombia, Ecuador, and Brazil.
When specialty films were
launched in 2010, DERPROSA
was the first to introduce these
novel films to the most well-
established printing companies
and graphics suppliers across
Latin America. Bolstered
by Taghleef’s acquisition of
DERPROSA in 2014, growth
in the region has more than
doubled; in addition, direct sales
representation in the territory
was added in a central location,
Costa Rica, to help respond to
increasing demand.
Recognizing the efforts of
the entire group—the original
DERPROSA team, the expanded
global graphic arts team, and
local
Ti
managers—there is every
reason to believe that DERPROSA
will continue to grow and prosper
through local distributors
and agents throughout Latin
America.
From Mexico to Argentina, the Latin American market
represents approximately 8,000 tons per year of graphic
arts films. Armed with our high-quality range of products
and ongoing relationships throughout the region,
Ti
has a brilliant opportunity to position itself as a leading
supplier in the LatAm region.
