Heidelberg event takes £9m worth of orders

Heidelberg UK did well out of its two-day 20/20 Vision open house last week, taking £9m worth of orders, including five press sales. This would seem to vindicate Heidelberg’s decision not to exhibit at Ipex. Some 450 printers went along, touring the showroom and taking part in seminar discussions, covering such topics as the perceived payback but potential pitfalls of Low Energy UV printing and the new version ISO 12647-2 colour management certification, as well as developments in the Prinect workflow.
Jim Todd, sales director, commented: “There is a great deal more confidence in the printing market and several capital investment projects are now moving ahead. In addition to the machine sales there was strong interest in the Saphira consumables products and support services, including training and consultancy.”

I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
