New livery for Heylen's Champ Car
Conquest Racing will be unveiling a brand new look for the #34 car at the upcoming Road America race at Elkhart Lake, WI on August 10th - 11th and 12th.   The new green and white custom designed paint scheme will feature Grafiprint Digital Printing Materials as the primary sponsor across the side-pod. Grafiprint is a product brand of Grafityp Self-Adhesive Products which boasts more than 60 years of service in the sign industry.  GRAFITYP, founded in 1969, is a division that is completely dedicated to a new range of digital print media and laminates. The Grafityp group occupies more than 400,000 sq ft of modern production facilities in Belgium that house four coating lines and one casting line. These facilities allow them to strive for perfection, which is also endorsed by their ISO-9001 quality label. Grafityp has 2 subsidiaries in Europe, Spain and the UK, and delivers its materials through distributors all over the world.

Herman Bosman, CEO Grafityp Group Quote
“We have been following Jan Heylen's performances for more than 10 years, and have supported him on several occasions in the past. The idea of having a completely Belgian team at the starting grid has appealed to us from the very first contacts.  As a Belgian company, it is a unique opportunity for us to cooperate with a Walloon team owner and a Flemish driver. Our products are used in the advertising and sign industry all over the world, and the digital print materials in particular are growing enormously.  Wherever it is possible, we manufacture our products in the most ecological way.  For instance, we have our own water purification plant, to ensure that we don't have to dispose of any industrial waste water.”

Eric Bachelart Quote
“We are very excited to have GRAFITYP as part of the #34 team,” said Eric Bachelart, Conquest Racing Team Owner. ”They have a solid reputation of service and quality in their industry and we want to emulate that superiority. We are proud to be working with such a highly regarded Belgian company and we look forward to showing off the car when we reach Road America.”

About Grafityp and Grafiprint
Grafityp's roots can be found in Amsterdam (Holland), where Stanserij Holland was founded back in 1945 by the father of today's CEO.  As premises soon became too small in Amsterdam, the company moved to Houthalen (Belgium) in 1969, and its name was changed into GRAFITYP Leaders in Lettersystems N.V. In 1984, Grafityp Leaders in Lettersystems was the first company to launch a sign cutting system completely controlled by PC (named CSR: Computerized Signmaking Robot).

From 1988 on, Grafityp started producing and distributing more and more self adhesive films (Grafitack), a branch for which the new Grafityp division GRAFITYP Selfadhesive Products would later take responsibility. At the start of 1996, Grafityp launched their high-quality cast films named GRAFICAST. By the end of 1997, sales of self adhesive films had grown to such an extent that all plotter and software activities had to be stopped. Grafityp decided to fully concentrate on the self-adhesives sign market, and launched a completely new series of Grafiprint digital printing media and laminates.

Today, Grafityp can boast more than 60 years of outstanding service to the sign industry. With more than 40,000 m² of modern production facilities (including 4 coating lines and 1 casting line) on 65,000 m² of premises allow us to strive for perfection, which is also endorsed by our ISO-9001 quality label.
