Polish Printer Druk-Intro Acquires L-140SP and LS-840P !
Dateline: Tsukuba, Japan
On May 30, a group of 41 printers from Poland visited Komori's new Tsukuba Plant led by Jarostaw Stradowski and Jolanta Kurowiak, owners of Reprograf, Komori's Warsaw-based distributor.
Following a briefing and a walk-through of the plant, Jan and Maria Novak, proprietors of Druk-Intro SA of Inowroclaw, Poland, formalized their investment in a one-color Lithrone 40SP and an eight-color Lithrone S40P.
Jan Novak explained Druk-Intro's selection: "We print books, both textbooks and color work such as National Geographic photo collections. We have used Heidelberg for 12 years – ever since our company's founding, in fact. Even though the decision was very difficult, however, we changed our philosophy for two reasons,. First, our disappointment with the level of support from Heidelberg and, second, our first Komori. In one year of using our first Lithrone, we printed 30 million impressions with no problems at all. These two new presses will be used 90 percent for book printing."
"We were the first printer in Poland to acquire an eight-color Heidelberg, and that brought us many new customers. Now with the new eight-color Komori, we hope to repeat this success," he said.
"I am also very happy to meet President Komori and see our new presses being manufactured. This acquisition was driven by the higher expectations of our customers, so now I can take photos of our new machines back to Poland and show our customers. We are looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership with Komori," added Novak.
