I can’t believe the year is almost over. Looking back, I can say that 2019 has been amazing for Landa Digital Printing! We installed presses on three continents and are now printing a range of stunning jobs for folding carton, publishing, commercial printing and POP. We’ve pushed the barriers, proved production and put Landa on the map. It is happening!
We have moved forward in so many aspects of our business. We held a series of open houses around the globe to showcase our presses installed at customer sites and hosted a VIP event with over a hundred guests in Israel.
We continued to grow our global service and support team and expanded our production facilities to enable growth in 2020 and beyond.
In Europe, Bluetree Group, the largest online commercial printer in the UK, received the first press in the UK and Groupe Prenant, a leading provider in the sheetfed offset commercial printing market in France received the first Landa press in France. Adding to this, Edelmann Group and SCHELLING AG joined Graphica Bezalel in an upgrade of their presses to seven colors. We are well on our way to establishing the presence of Landa Digital Printing technology in Europe.
ZRP recently installed the very first Landa press in China, as well as in all of Asia. Specializing in packaging for some of the biggest brands in the world, ZRP is one of the top three folding carton converters in China.
During the year our customers opened their doors to show Landa technology in action. In September, to keep up the momentum, we held a VIP open house event at our facilities in Rehovot, Israel. Our guests toured our expanding facilities and were able to speak to 11 of our customers and hear firsthand about their experiences with the installation and ramping up of their presses, and about the close support from the Landa team too.
To support our growing installed base and with it the demand for press consumables to service our customers, we expanded our production facilities by establishing a new systems plant for Landa NanoInk® colorants and press consumables.
2020 and Beyond
There is so much to be excited about in 2020. We are on the path to accelerated growth with more customers joining the Landa family and more great news. 2020 is also a Drupa year and Landa Digital Printing will be there even bigger than before.
As the year comes to an end, I would like to thank our fantastic customers, our partners, and the smart, dedicated team at Landa Digital Printing worldwide. All of you have contributed to this year’s success. It is a pleasure to be on this journey with you all and I wish you and your families a healthy, happy, successful new year and a restful, refreshing holiday season. Le’Chaim and cheers to 2020.
