Heidelberg Realigns Postpress Portfolio
German manufacturer Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG is restructuring its postpress portfolio and will reduce in-house capacities in a move that is expected to improve results by about EUR 30 million annually, starting in the next fiscal year.
In-house production at the Heidelberg sites in Germany is no longer competitive; therefore, production of folding machines at the Ludwigsburg site will continue, but the manufacture of other postpress products will be discontinued. Future postpress packaging solutions will be developed and manufactured by Heidelbergs new Chinese OEM partner, Masterwork Machinery Co., Ltd., with Heidelberg retaining responsibility for sales and service activities. Swiss company Müller Martini will take over service activities for installed equipment from discontinued lines.
These measures will not affect business with Polar cutters and Heidelberg folding machines.
