Heidelberg USA announced that Quad/Graphics, a global marketing services provider, has recently invested in four new Heidelberg Speedmaster presses to support its commercial, packaging and in-store platforms.
Quad/Graphics’ packaging division, known as QuadPackaging, has invested in a new Speedmaster XL 106 press for its newly expanded operations in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The new, larger facility, which opened in February 2017, has already doubled its production capacity. It delivers top-quality packaging materials for the cigar, pharmaceutical, medical device, apparel and other industries. In addition to the Dominican Republic location, QuadPackaging also made a recent investment in a new Speedmaster XL 106 press for its Spartanburg, South Carolina location.
Quad/Graphics Europe, located in Poland to cost-effectively serve Europe’s printing needs, will install a Speedmaster VLF (Very Large Format) press for its point of purchase business segment. The new press will help the plant produce various types of packaging and floor displays with complex shapes and structures, serving the food, cosmetics, chemical, motor, alcohol and textile industries.
A Speedmaster XL 106-8P+L with X4 delivery will be installed at Quad/Graphics’ Dallas location – part of the company’s Commercial & Specialty group, which focuses on short-run and print-on-demand catalogs, case-bound books, direct mail and promotional items. The press is the first in the world to be equipped with three types of UV capabilities: full UV, LE UV and LED.
