One week after the opening of drupa 2008, the two owners of SB
Graphic and SB Graphic Plus, came to Düsseldorf to confirm the
order of a Speedmaster XL 162. The medium-sized print shop
based in Aulnay sous Bois (Paris area) will be the first in France
to install the very-large format press in October 2008.
The print shop is already equipped with a Speedmaster CD
102-5+L and a Speedmaster CD 102-6+L and a Speedmaster CD 74-5+LX.
A new Speedmaster CD 102-5+LX has been installed last month.
Specialized in printing for the French luxury goods industry, SB
Graphic intends to enter the publishing printing market in France
and to extend their portfolio to packaging printing with the
Speedmaster XL 162.
Created in 1992, this company is now producing at two
different sites (SB Graphic and SB Graphic Plus). "We have
been impressed by the performance, the quality and the size of the
machine when we came to Wiesloch-Walldorf for the very first tests,
but we are still impressed when seeing it on the show",
explain Bruno de Bue and Richard Moraly.
