Printed packaging started
In connection with the printing on packaging in 1954, Kassagerð Reykjavíkur came up early with a complete print shop after the purchase of new equipment, and the production increased substantially thereafter and lasted for a long time in any kind of printing production, e.g. calendars, note books and bookkeeping books. Kassagerð Reykjavíkur merged with a small company called Askja and then began production of carton boxes under fast-frozen fish. A few years later machine line was purchased for the carton department, which could print in one run in six colours and also cuts out the shape of a carton. The engine ran up to 125 meters per minute, but it was only used for frozen fish that was exported.
