Temps Impresores sticks with Heidelberg

Based in Massanassa in the Spanish city of Valencia, Temps Impresores  was established in 2004 by three partners. Initially a commercial printing business, the company is now focusing on expanding its offering for packaging printing. It was this that prompted Temps to invest in equipment for folding carton post-press at the beginning of 2020 – shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic started.

With the new MK Promatrix 106 CSB die-cutter and the new MK Diana Easy folder gluer, Temps was able to expand its portfolio for strategically important packaging customers in the Levant region (Eastern Mediterranean), and offer its existing customers new products and services. It services the Spanish peninsula and the neighbouring European countries. It is also still involved in commercial printing.

“We’ve been a customer of Heidelberg for many years and value the partnership,” confirms Isidoro Sánchez, one of the company’s founders. “Despite the difficult times, Heidelberg went ahead with installing the new machines. The packaging orders more than made up for the drop in orders in the commercial end of things and got us over the first wave of COVID-19.”

Since then Temps has specialised in manufacturing all kinds of packaging and was working at full capacity even during the pandemic. This year the printing company is targeting sales of almost €2m.

Most of the current equipment at Temps is from Heidelberg: a new Versafire digital printing press, a Suprasetter A74 CtP unit, a Speedmaster CD 74 four-colour press, a Stahlfolder CH-66 folding machine that was installed last year, and a Polar N 115 Plus cutting machine.

Temps also uses Saphira consumables, which are being optimally perfect for the equipment they are used with. All the processes are integrated with the Prinect workflow for high transparency. With the Heidelberg Assistant there is now a digital interface to customers to coordinate orders and grow the trusting partnership.

“In order to strengthen the close relationship with our customers, acquire even more new customers and always be able to offer the right product in top quality, we’ve already settled on our next investment,” explains Sánchez. “We’re having a Speedmaster XL 75 six-colour press with UV technology from the new 2020 generation installed soon. This will make us flexible and enable us to better meet the needs of the discerning packaging printing market.”
