Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) is experiencing steady investment growth in key market segments and regions. The company recently achieved a major sales success in the publishing sector, which constitutes one of the largest cultural industries in Europe with an estimated total market value of 36-38 billion euros. With over 500,000 works published each year, Europe’s book industry is also exceptionally diverse and has performed amazingly well in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. This positive trend is bringing about a more favorable investment climate in publishing print shops. It was against this backdrop that one of Europes leading publishing and book printer Wilco located in the Netherlands decided to replace the majority of its printing presses with a total of eleven 2020-generation Speedmaster XL 106 presses from Heidelberg as part of its site consolidation plans and the associated construction work for a new production center in Amersfoort. These offset printing systems featuring the enhanced Push to Stop technology have various configurations, including four models just for the Speedmaster XL 106 8P, some with LED UV technology.
