Landa has teamed up with another firm, this time with Germany’s manroland sheetfed, in a deal where the Israel corporation will provide manroland with its groundbreaking Nanographic Printing™ technology.
The German firm began trading in early February following the acquisition of the sheetfed division of the insolvent manroland AG by British industrialist Tony Langley and Langley Holdings PLC.
Raphael Penuela, executive vice president and main board member for manroland, said: “manroland sheetfed is committed to helping our customers meet the challenges of today’s printing industry with the most innovative and productive solutions. Clearly, that must include digital for mainstream printing. Landa Nanographic Printing technology offers the versatility of digital printing together with the qualities and speed of offset printing. It’s a great strategic fit. Our goal will be to deliver to our customer’s new digital printing solutions by converting their existing offset presses to nanography.”
Benny Landa, chairman, chief executive and founder, Landa, added: “As the newly restructured manroland sheetfed starts a new chapter, I am enthused that the company will adopt Landa nanography on which to base its digital printing offerings. Nanography and offset are a perfect fit. In the foreseeable future we will not see a digital printing technology capable of replacing offset for job run lengths of tens or hundreds of thousands. But the market demands ever-shorter run lengths as well as the versatility of digital. That’s where Landa Nanographic Printing comes in – at unmatched cost per page.”
He concluded: “Manroland sheetfed is one of the world’s leading providers of sheetfed offset presses and solutions with a longstanding tradition of excellence. This new partnership combines the prestigious manroland brand with the power of nanography, enabling manroland’s extensive customer base to go digital by converting their existing manroland presses to nanography.”
