Tinsley Robor Group Ltd.

Profile:
Major printing, packaging & innovative design group (holding company) - Now known as "AGI World Ltd."

The group was initially established on the 25th February 1969 through the acquisition of "S.Tinsley & Co. Ltd", "Robor-Bradstreet Ltd" & Robor Ltd., followed by the printing / packaging business's of Howards Printers (Slough) Ltd. & James Upton Ltd. in the early 70s.

In 1974 the group approached Steinemann Technology (Switzerland) to invent a new type of machine to coat cardboard products with UV varnish, the group took deliver of this new innovative machine (Uvimat -126) shortly after. The new process was a game changer allowing the company to cut costs by half and speed up the printing process ten-fold, as opposed to the slower expensive method involved in lamination.

Throughout the early 1990s the company continued to expand in the multimedia market through its subsidiaries, opening new plants to serve EMI Uden, EMI Swindon and in 1995 being invited by SONY to open a new factory in Austria to serve DADC Austria.

The company was the sole licensee for AGI (4) Digipak® brand in the UK, which was manufactured at James Upton's Birmingham factory. In 1997 "Tinsley Robor" also acquired the Dutch packaging company Van De Steeg whom was the European licensee for the Digipak® brand and the owner of its own patented packaging products.

In 1998 the group was acquired by / and became part of Impac Group Inc. (private equity group) which was subsequently acquired in 2000 by Westvaco later to become MeadWestvaco.
In 2010, parent company MeadWestvaco (MWV) agreed to sell its Media & Entertainment business "AGI World" operating as AGI Media, AGI Amaray and AGI Polymatrix, to Atlas Industrial Holding Company LLC. In 2012 Atlas Holdings merges "AGI World" with International Paper's Shorewood Packaging to create ASG. (AGI-Shorewood Group)
