Heidelberg says it wants to underline the strategic significance of the growth market of packaging and label printing for the further economic development of the company.

Stephan Plenz, member of the management board, equipment, Heidelberg says, “The appearance of packaging at the point of sale has a direct influence on the purchase decision and the brand experience of consumers. Depending on the market segment, poorly produced packaging – even just variations in colour – can result in loss of image as well as a high liability risk.

“The Heidelberg promise of zero defect packaging fulfils the requirements of brand companies for flawless packaging from an aesthetic, legal, functional, and marketing point of view. Heidelberg is the leading provider in the industry that can guarantee digitized and industrial packaging production with a defect-free, standardised end result.
