Packaging printer continues to strengthen its market position with new Speedmaster XL 106

17/06/2020

  • Successful installation even in coronavirus times: Schäfer Druck & Verpackung takes delivery of an elevated Speedmaster XL 106 six-color press with coating unit for the production of folding cartons
  • Complete package consisting of innovative press, workflow, and service clinches the deal
  • Growth through customer orientation and investment in state-of-the-art technology

The wait was worth it. Schäfer Druck & Verpackung GmbH & Co.KG in Werther has been a hive of activity for several days with the installation of the Speedmaster XL 106 2020 generation from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). It represents the first installation of an elevated press for a packaging printer in Germany. A new foundation up to two meters deep was poured specifically for the Speedmaster XL 106-6+L. Schäfer Druck & Verpackung added a countdown to its homepage to count down the days to the installation, which given the coronavirus pandemic had to be planned even more carefully to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved. Schäfer Druck & Verpackung specializes in folding cartons for the food industry and numbers well-known brands from the confectionery and frozen food sectors among its long-standing customers. The staff of 43 produces for companies in these sectors in the region, as well as for customers from across Germany.

“Flexibility, reliability, and proximity to the customer with round-the-clock accessibility,” is how Timo Schäfer describes the factors behind the success of the company he has headed up as managing director for the past four years. His father Udo Schäfer established the company in 1987 to print advertising materials and forms. The company moved to a new building ten years later, adding small carton batches to its commercial print activities with a Speedmaster CD 74. After replacing that press with a Speedmaster XL 75-6+L, the company made the full switch to cartons and for more than fifteen years has only been producing folding cartons and shelf trays. “Now we’re taking the next step and switching the format class from 75 to 106. Our customers rely on our flexibility and speed, and our intention with this investment is to maintain and, needless to say, continue to build on this,” explains Timo Schäfer.
