One of the largest retail print specialists in Benelux, Em. de Jong, has ordered a Landa S10P nanographic printing press to enable more complex retail print for increased volumes of shorter run, collated jobs.
Installation of the Landa press will be at the company’s headquarters in Baarle-Nassau, the Netherlands. According to Em. de Jong, the new Landa S10P will allow them to add new print services such as larger POP and POS graphics (70x100), as well as increase productivity and reduce time to market. The company claims that the new investment will provide its customers with increased flexibility and personalization opportunities.
‘The size, speed, quality and versatility of the Landa S10P is unique. For our POS, POP and commercial print markets, we currently operate a number of toner-based digital presses, offset presses and large format inkjet printers. And they all have their place, but we always look ahead to the next technology that can give us a competitive edge. The Landa S10P is that product – smart-tech for the future that can drive new business and add value to the process,’ said Stijn de Jong, CEO of Em. de Jong.
‘Because the Landa S10P is based on an offset sheet size, we will be able to leverage this size increase to significantly improve productivity. This will also mean that we can streamline the process, enabling us to meet increased demand for shorter run length work,’ added de Jong. ‘In addition, as the Landa press can print on any uncoated stock, we’re looking to extend that beyond our current substrate types, to give customers even more choice.
‘We are excited to start our Landa journey. As a full production duplex machine running at 6,500 sheets per hour, the press fulfills all market needs and will help us to stay competitive. It’s the natural next step for us.’
Manuel Schrutt, general manager of Landa Digital Printing, EMEA, commented: ‘We’re proud to add Em. de Jong to the Landa family and to extend our customer base in this important region. What’s more, the continued validation that our speed, print quality and format size is exactly what companies like Em. de Jong are searching for, suggests that Nanography is still the technology of choice for forward thinking businesses looking to future proof their offering.’
Established in 1906 in Baarle-Nassau, Em. de Jong is a fourth-generation family business, currently employing 1,200 staff at seven production sites across the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. The company services many retail outlets in Europe delivering thousands of printed jobs per week, including a wide range of POS and POP graphics, brochures and leaflets.
