Landa Digital Printing recently announced that it has opened a new European consumables manufacturing facility, based in Sittard, The Netherlands. Producing the revolutionary Landa Nanoink used to power Landa S10 and S10P nanographic printing presses, the new site enables the company to double consumables production and support the rapid growth in demand for ink due to soaring customer print volumes.

By manufacturing in mainland Europe, the company has dramatically shortened its lead times for consumables and increased its production capacity. It has also reduced its environmental impact by reducing the shipment of raw materials and finished goods required to produce its products. Designed to improve its consumables supply chain, the new facility ensures market leading service to its portfolio of European customers and their international brands.

Gil Oron, chief executive officer, Landa Digital Printing comments, “Our new Sittard site is geared towards sustainability, service reliability and business growth. It provides Landa customers with local supply, which in times of very challenging worldwide logistics and parts supplies, offers considerable reassurance. What’s more, with customer production volumes increasing daily, this also ensures prompt and reliable delivery too – crucial in increasing efficiency.”

The new Landa facility provides consumables for its revolutionary and unique portfolio of nanographic printing presses, designed to address a huge gap in the market for cost effective short to medium run mainstream packaging and commercial jobs. Solutions include the Landa S10 nanographic printing press – a B1 solution designed for mainstream packaging and converting industries – and the Landa S10P nanographic printing press, which is ideal for two-sided B1 general commercial printing.

Gil Oron concludes, “Our new European facility is another example of our long term commitment to the European market, and our ability to be the change-maker that the industry needs. Landa continues to revolutionize and digitize the mass production printing industry.”

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.
