sales and service branches and via partners, Heidelberg reaches its

flexo printing, this includes prepress and finishing machinery and
our Prinect software for integrating all of the processes within a

The central functions as well as the research and development
business are bundled at the head office in Heidelberg, Germany.
Furthermore, Heidelberg is active in eight countries with
development and production sites. Its printing presses, prepress
equipment, and postpress finishing systems are mainly produced in
Germany. Standardized presses for all common format classes and
folding machines - primarily for the Chinese market - are also
manufactured in Qingpu near Shanghai, China. All in all, around
14,000 people are currently working for Heidelberg worldwide.
In the established industrialized nations and, increasingly,
in the emerging economies, considerable emphasis is placed on the
ecological optimization of the production of Heidelberg machinery
right through to operation and the consumables used. Measures
relating to the development, manufacture and use of machinery are
aimed at reducing resource consumption and hence the carbon
footprint, as well as other emissions and process-related waste.
The Saphira Eco products launched in 2011 meet the most stringent
industry standards and statutory requirements. Printed materials
manufactured using products from the Saphira Eco line are allowed
to bear the "Printed with Saphira Eco" seal.
Our market consists of four submarkets that have considerable
differences in terms of customer requirements. Demand ranges from
high-performance standard machinery through to highly specialized
machines that are tailored to specific customer needs. Sheetfed
offset technology is the most common technology in the commercial
and packaging printing market. Heidelberg is the market leader for
sheetfed offset printing. Heidelberg equipment is used around the
world to make high-quality print products such as advertising
materials, brochures, posters, folding cartons and labels.
