Lebanon's rich history in printing holds a key to its present day status in this field. Once known as the print shop of the Middle East, it was the first in the region to install a printing press as early as the 17th century.
Today, the printing industry plays a major role in the Lebanese economy, there are over 400 print shops operating in Lebanon and contributing assertively to this industry.
It was only a matter of time before Heidelberg Druckmaschinen AG would cast an interested glance at Lebanon and establish in the late nineties a subsidiary SSU (Sales and Service Unit) in the re-emerging business center of the Middle East. Lebanese printers, in their small but sure steps, need to invest in the latest technologies to improve print quality and increase productivity, and they are confident that Heidelberg will give them the benefit of choice, through the large range of equipment and solutions.
Heidelberg Lebanon's mission is clear; we want to be right next to the Lebanese printer, to feel his pulse and better understand his needs and expectations. We aim to be his preferred partner and safeguard his long-term investment by offering him professional and competent advice, top quality products that best suit his needs, and above all, prompt and efficient service, that has proven over the years that it is one of the major decisive points when a customer consider to invest in a printing press. With confidence, determination, hard work and our resources we are sure to achieve our goal and leave a good "impression" on the Lebanese printing industry.
