Heidelberg delivers the two longest sheetfed offset presses ever produced to leading global packaging manufacturer WestRock. The longest, delivered to WestRock’s Tczew, Poland facility, is a 42-m, specially adapted custom configuration of a Speedmaster XL 106 with a total of 20 printing and coating units.
“We help our customers simplify their printing processes and boost their productivity by offering them a high level of automation and flexibility, something that is especially important at a time when the skills shortage is becoming more acute worldwide,” says Heidelberg CEO Dr. Ludwin Monz.
Additionally, Heidelberg is supplying another Speedmaster XL 106 with a total of 19 printing and coating units to a WestRock site in Obersulm, Germany, the second longest in the world.
Mark Shaw, business leader, EMEA and APAC at WestRock said, “Innovation and sustainability are the bedrock of WestRock’s operation, and by investing in print technology from Heidelberg we are future-proofing our capabilities for our customers. There is no better demonstration of this than the two longest presses in the world being developed specifically for WestRock facilities. As brands continue to drive demand for sustainable, fibre-based packaging, through our continued investment and industry-leading expertise, we are well positioned to meet these needs.”
