Following the purchase of a second press by Interprint GmbH in Arnsberg, another company has opted for a RotaJET 225 for 4/0 production from Koenig & Bauer.

Koenig & Bauer executive board member Christoph Müller said, “We expect sustainable future growth in the industrial print markets. And that applies in particular to digital decor and packaging printing, two important segments for Koenig & Bauer. With web widths up to 225 cm, the RotaJET is an optimum means of production in both fields.”

Alongside the decor press for Interprint, Koenig & Bauer announced the sale of a RotaJET 168 to TetraPak in January. And as recently reported, the first CorruJET has now entered the commissioning phase at HANS KOLB Wellpappe.

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.
