Will Parker of Reflex Labels is a determined man. In 2012 he made his way to the Landa stand on the opening day of Drupa to see what the fuss was all about. A Benny Landa devotee, like many others that day, he wanted to see what was bringing Benny back to printing and when he saw the Nanography® process for the first time he knew he had join the party.
With just a few minutes after ten on the clock on the opening day, Will became the first of many customers to sign a letter of intent to purchase a Landa Nanographic Printing® Press.

Run the clock forward four years and at a minute after ten on Tuesday morning in Düsseldorf, he did it again and signed a preliminary order for the delivery of the UK’s first webfed Landa W10 Nanographic Printing® Press. This third generation printer and the owner of the UK’s first Indigo Omnius press for label printing, just had to repeat his feat of being the first Landa customer to sign at Drupa 2016.
Of course Will and his partner Ian Kendall have had the benefit of seeing Nanography up close for the last four years – visiting us in Israel on several occasions and getting regular visits for the technical team, like many others in our preferred customer programme.
But Will is an early bird, so by flying in on Monday night, he made sure he had secured his place in Nanographic printing history and toasted the event with a glass of champagne with Benny – all before Benny even delivered the first of his theatre shows.
There aren’t too many driven people like Will, but there are many Landa customers who have had faith in Benny to keep his promise to deliver Nanography. And they are turning up in their droves to Hall 9 in Dusseldorf.
