07/23/2020

  • Annual General Meeting elects two shareholder representatives to the Supervisory Board
  • Dr. Martin Sonnenschein confirmed as Chairman of the Supervisory Board

Around 34 percent of Heidelberg's share capital was represented at the first virtual Annual General Meeting of Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) for financial year 2019/2020.

The Management Board explained the company's strategy and the balance sheet figures for the past financial year (1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020) to shareholders in a live broadcast over the Internet. The clear focus of the strategy is on increasing the company's profitability by concentrating on those markets and market segments that are profitable and in which Heidelberg has a leading global position. In addition, as the world's largest supplier to the packaging printing industry, Heidelberg is ideally positioned to benefit from the potential of major growth markets such as China in this market segment. The company now generates around 50 percent of its offset press sales in this sector. Future-oriented technology in the form of digital solutions is guaranteed by Heidelberg's Smart Printshop, which consistently pursues the digitization of processes in order to close automation gaps, drive forward digital process integration and exploit the potential of digital data and artificial intelligence.
