ABB Printing appoints Staedeli

New head of operations in Switzerland


ABB, one of the leading suppliers of automation solutions for the newspaper industry, has announced a change in its management. Damian Staedeli has been appointed head of ABB Printing Switzerland with effect from 1 January this year. Staedeli is well-known within the newspaper production industry. He has been with ABB Printing for over 20 years, working primarily in the fields of service and sales.

He succeeds Markus Greiner, who is taking up a new challenge outside ABB Printing. Staedeli looks forward to the challenges of his new role. “We have tuned our organization to increase our competitiveness and to further emphasize our commitment to long-term support of our customers,” says Staedeli. “We have a great team in Switzerland and across the world and are well-equipped to handle whatever challenges come our way.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
