HAN e-Newsletter Issue November 2008
Welcome to the last issue of e-news for 2008, a year that began
with much promise leading into the industry's showcase event, drupa
in May - seems a long time ago now. Since then things have been
turned on their head with the global financial crisis dominating
everyone's thoughts. Nonetheless, print has soldiered on. While
Santa hasn't sent us too many orders for new machines to put under
your tree, if you have worked especially hard and I am sure you
have - now's the time to put your wish list in. The banks have
helped out with reducing interest rates and investments in lean
times bring exceptional rewards when things pick up. Just ask a
Heidelberg elf how we can brighten up your New Year.
Its business as usual over the holiday period, we are closed
for the public holidays but our operations centre and spare parts
lines are open as always with the usual after hours services in
place. From Friday 19th of December to Monday January the 10th we
will have reduced staff numbers taking the chance to recharge their
batteries to for the challenges the New Year will bring but I am
sure we will be able to look after your needs of you are working
Look for the next issue of e News in February 2009 and from
all of us at Heidelberg, thanks for your loyalty, friendship and
support during 2008 and have a safe and happy Xmas.
