2020 was to be a year of many celebrations and special events: the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo, the 2020 UEFA Euro soccer games, drupa 2020, - and the 50th anniversary of Graficas Diamante SAS, one of the most successful and renowned print shop of Columbia’s capital Medellin.

At the end of 2019, in preparation of this important milestone, the company ordered a second Speedmaster XL 75-5+L to ramp up its packaging production. Two machines of the same reference and format would allow Graficas Diamante to increase shop floor efficiency while minimizing the effort required to learn how to operate a new piece of equipment.

The new Speedmaster was due to be installed and commissioned early in the spring of 2020, right before the 50th anniversary celebration kickstarted. And then came corona. By March, it was clear the COVID-19 pandemic could jeopardize both the installation and the celebration plans.

But excellence of service is the hallmark of Heidelberg. The Heidelberg Colombia team, taking all safety and sanitary precautions required, was committed to have the machine producing in time for Graficas Diamante’s anniversary– and achieved that goal in due time.

We congratulate Graficas Diamante for 50 years of excellence and success, and wish them all the best for the next 50 years to come.
