After the acquisition of the Schwann printing house by Bagel in 1974, the Tiefdruck (gravure print) Schwann-Bagel GmbH & Co. KG was founded, which still gives the TSB Group its name to this day. That was the beginning of a dynamic development towards becoming one of the largest printing houses in Europe and a reliable partner for the publishing, dispatch and retail industry.
Over the course of the years, the TSB Group grew by adding its sister company Bagel Roto-Offset located in Saxony-Anhalt in 1992, Bruckmann Tiefdruck from Munich in 1999, the Italian Roto Alba in 2001, Bagel Direkt in 2006 and in 2008 H+B Finishing and also BASICO Finishing in Mönchengladbach.
In 2012, the TSB Group and Burda Druck, two high-performing and well established printing companies, joined forces under the name B+B for five years. Since 2011 TSB Retail is responsible for sales performance for retail Clients. Thanks to this merger, the printing group can satisfy clients with their full range of services and optimised logistics.
