The World of Printing Meets at Drupa 2012

Drupa is the largest world-wide printing industry trade show which occurs every four years in Dusseldorf, Germany.  If it is printed, the solution can be found at Drupa. With over 2,000 exhibitors and 38,000 attendees Drupa is an invaluable resource for print leaders worldwide. Our CEO Jim Kell spent full three days looking at the equipment and vendors that could improve our company and benefit our customers. He shared some insight about what he saw on the show floor.

“As you might expect, all the major manufactures had 29-56″ offset presses on display.” He continued, “I spent some time with the Komori and Heidelberg folks and across the board the message was “offset on demand.” The manufactures are emphasizing fast make-readies and the use of Hybrid UV inks so that you can turn the sheet and pass right back through the press.”

“I was glad to see where the printing industry in heading. It is without a doubt that our industry is not stagnate, there was a lot of excitement on the show floor and some demonstrations were hard to even get close enough to see. All I can say is we are in the printing business to stay, it’s vibrant and strong.”
