When the installation of a new Speedmaster XL 106 ten-color perfecting press at B&K Offsetdruck GmbH was scheduled earlier on this year - with a planning stretching over a period of 4 weeks, - nobody could have imagined how much the Coronavirus pandemic would affect business and private life.
The press is one of three that will be supplied by a local consignment warehouse1 through a subscription contract. So not only was it necessary to install the machine on time despite the difficult circumstances, but it was also primordial to create the conditions for supplier-controlled inventory management2 and train the customer's team accordingly.
The challenge was mastered in close partnership with the customer - and today, the machines in Ottersweier continue to run at full speed.
B&K Offsetdruck's team of experts provide a wide range of commercial printing services, from 4-color standard products to high-quality dialog marketing solutions. The printing company has been designated as one of the most innovative print shop for sheetfed and webfed printing in Germany by the trade magazine "Deutscher Drucker".
Good to know:
1 Consignment warehouse: a warehouse of a vendor or service provider that is located near the customer (recipient).
2 Supplier-managed inventory: Logistical tool for improving supply chain performance where the supplier has access to the customer's inventory and demand data.
