Despite the fact that printing technology is already highly advanced, manufacturers throughout the print-media industry worldwide are constantly under pressure to deliver new solutions to increasingly sophisticated problems.
In issue 257, Heidleberge’s own business strategy is examined in detail, and the inventive spirit of both its management and its customers is praised. Readers are also treated to a glimpse of the Company’s global service logistics, with focus on Portuguese printing company Fernandes Terceiro – Artes Gráficas in Portugal, known as the “Jewel by the Sea.”
To further investigate the issue of manufacturers keeping abreast with technology, the magazine includes insight from German company Druck & Media and Viappiani Printing in Italy – two companies who have succeeded in developing their product portfolio and business models with completely different and yet equally intelligent concepts.
Demonstrating expertise in the printing industry, the managing director of the professional services group at the National Association for Printing Leadership, USA, (NAPL), John Hyde, describes how the unorthodox concept of ‘business unusual’ works, and director for engineering and manufacturing at Heidelberg, Dr. Jürgen Rautert, outlines his views on the most successful approach to in-house research and development.
Also included in issue 257 of the magazine is a run-down of the new Speedmaster SM 52-10-P the world’s first 35×50 mm, 10 colour press, as well as a look at the new Stitchmaster ST 450 Saddlestitcher, stitching machine.
