Heidelberg Receives Orders in Excess of Euro 185 Million at the US Trade Fair Graph Expo


Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is continuing to expand its leading position on the world market. 
At this year's largest US trade fair for the graphic arts industry, Graph Expo 2000 (September 24 - 27, 2000, Chicago), Heidelberg received orders in excess of Euro 185 million.  "With its member states the USA, Mexico and Canada, NAFTA is the world's largest domestic market. For Heidelberg, the American free-trade zone plays a key role - in the last fiscal year (1999/2000), we achieved 33 percent of our Group sales there", explains Chairman of the Management Board Bernhard Schreier. 
The success in Chicago is particularly pleasing, especially after the record figures already achieved at drupa (May 18 - 31, 2000, Düsseldorf). It confirms once again the company's new strategic alignment as a solution provider for the print media industry.

The company was also delighted with the number of visitors. Practically every one of the 46,000 guests at Graph Expo visited the Heidelberg stand. Heidelberg's portfolio at Graph Expo included complete solutions tailored to the precise needs of its customers. These included printing presses, but also prepress and postpress products, software, consumables and services. 
Excellent orders were received in all sectors. For the first time in North America, Heidelberg has introduced its digital color printing press NexPress 2100. Heidelberg will be launching the four-color digital press, developed in a joint venture with Kodak, onto the market over the course of next year. Customers' responses were overwhelmingly positive and highlight Heidelberg's commitment to digital printing.
