Manroland Goss web systems has handled the relocation of two 48-page Lithoman web offset presses for the Sattler Media Group. Since the merger last year, the manroland Goss Group has convinced customers as a comprehensive service partner. Now the company has moved two Lithoman printing presses for the Sattler Media Group from Lübeck to Barleben.

The Sattler Media Group has purchased two additional Lithoman units in order to support the production site in Barleben. The high-volume presses for commercial printing help to increase the productivity, efficiency and flexibility of insert printing. For the relocation project, it was obvious to rely on the manufacturer of the printing press – “We relied on the competence and expertise of manroland Goss and our trust was more than rewarded. The project management services in particular were unbeatable,” says Marc Holzapfel from Sattler Media Group.

Manroland Goss has relocated the two presses simultaneously. The project started in December 2018 and the printing presses were scheduled to be in production in Spring-Summer 2019.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
