Heidenheim, Germany and Rehovot, Israel, April 5, 2017 – Edelmann and Landa Digital Printing today announce that Edelmann, one of the world’s leading providers of high-quality and innovative board and paper packaging solutions, will install a Landa S10 Nanographic Printing® Press.
Edelmann, Germany’s largest independent packaging converter, will use its new Nanographic Printing capability to generate valuable business growth from high-quality, high-speed, medium-run folding carton work.
Dierk Schröder, Chairman, Edelmann, says: “Our business is all about customer service. Staying in tune with the market and delivering what it needs, but also anticipating, innovating and then proactively offering what it didn’t know it needed. We’re excited to be working with Landa; this is a value-based partnership that will drive long-lasting end customer relationships. What’s more, Nanography® is breakthrough technology with the potential to transform the print, packaging and communication markets.”

Oliver Sattel, Technical Director, Edelmann, comments: “Brands are actively looking to streamline their operations to remain lean and efficient, but not at the expense of product quality or price. The Landa S10 delivers this. It removes the previous barriers of minimum order quantities, with money tied-up in unnecessary printed stock and storage. This represents unprecedented flexibility that will interest not only our customers’ procurement departments, but also their creative teams too. We already have lots of interest for this new service, and are confident that Landa is the right partner and Nanography the only technology to deliver this capability.”
With operations in nine countries, employing 2,700 people, sales of 300 million euros and producing 5.5 billion packages and leaflets per year, Edelmann is one of the world’s leading packaging manufacturers and system suppliers. Specializing in packaging solutions for health care, beauty care and consumer brands, the company has operations in Europe, Asia, North and South America.
Yishai Amir, Landa CEO, comments: “Edelmann works with world leading brands such as P&G, L’Oréal and many others. Their established production quality standard, High Q Packaging, underpins their offering and is highly respected by customers and the wider market.
“For us, Edelmann represents the perfect beta partner. They not only understand the value of Nanography and its unique benefits, but have a clear plan for its successful roll-out and customer adoption. We look forward to working closely with Edelman and supporting their growth as they pioneer the use of medium run-length B1 digital print,” concludes Yishai Amir.
Engineered for the packaging and converting industries, the Landa S10 Nanographic Printing® Press enables mainstream packaging productivity with plate-free, offset print quality.
The Landa S10 will be installed at Edelmann's Heidenheim production site, the largest of its kind in Europe. Edelmann will also exhibit at Interpack 2017 (Hall 11 / A14.A18) to showcase the benefits of Nanographic Printing.
Headed by Indigo founder, Benny Landa, the Landa Group is comprised of four units: Landa Digital Printing, whose Nanographic Printing® presses bridge the industry's “Profitability Gap”, cost-effectively combining the versatility of digital with the qualities and speed of offset to produce short-to-medium runs with the lowest cost per digitally-printed page in the industry; Landa Labs, the group’s innovation arm, which explores nanotechnology for use in alternative energy, industrial coatings, cosmetics, packaging, drug delivery and other fields; Landa Ventures, which invests in early stage companies with complementary disruptive technology; and the Landa Fund, which helps underprivileged youth pursue higher education.
