The Crea family tree
In 1918, Alfred Cosaert took over a printing company in Schaarbeek and relocated it to downtown Roeselare. In 1943, Alfred's son Wilfried Cosaert took over the company and gave it the name of Huize Breughel..
Geert Cosaert changed the company name again, 24 years later, and called it Crea. At that time, Crea sold gifts, school supplies, occasional printing and commercial printing. In 1967, the company only had 8 employees.
In 1974, a new printing site was built, just outside the centre of Roeselare and 5 years later, the company was ready for another expansion. In 1983, Crea began UV offset printing on plastic. In 1989, the printer again needed to expand and a new facility was built.
In 2012, Benedict Cosaert took over the Chair of the Board of Directors from his father and established a sister company, Cosapack, in the same year. Cosapack offers a wide range of options for printing labels and flexible packaging.
