Uniqueness catches on
- Kunst- und Werbedruck is reinventing itself as a full-service provider, focusing on quality and tight delivery schedules
- Investment package of over € 9 million in Heidelberg machines
- Successful field test with Speedmaster XL 106 Push to Stop, the first press in the world to be partially equipped with Hycolor Multidrive
Company Kunst- und Werbedruck this year invested in a full package from Heidelberg worth more than € 9 million, and positions itself for its customers as a full-service provider. Managing Directors Stefan Belte (left) and Frank Pieper (right), together with Technical Manager Artur Benz, are more than happy with their decision.

The new Speedmaster XL 106 ten-color with perfecting is the first press in the world to be partially equipped with the innovative Hycolor Multidrive inking unit drive.
The printed products that Kunst- und Werbedruck produces are unique and particularly high-quality.
It is worth it for companies to question their business model, to start over, and then start again. That’s was happened at Kunst- und Werbedruck (K + W) in Bad Oeynhausen. In late 2013, K + W said goodbye to web offset printing and a hodgepodge of different presses. Since then, it has embraced sheetfed offset printing in 3B format and a high level of vertical integration. As a partner it chose Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), which had already installed the first Speedmaster XL 105 in 2012 and then in 2014 installed a second Speedmaster XL 106, this time as a perfecting press, as well as several finishing presses. “We offer ‘everything from a single source’ and ‘does not work – does not exist’ solutions,” says Stefan Belte in describing the new approach. Together with Frank Pieper, he has been working as a Managing Director at K + W since 2010. The recipe for success? “We take on any challenge, whether technical, economical, organizational or logistical, and always deliver something special.”
