“Our objective is to secure and further strengthen our position as the leading print service provider to customers throughout Central and Eastern Europe. To achieve this, we must be able to rely on the quality and capabilities of modern high-performance presses, as well as the long-term support of a dependable partner,” said Tomáš Kramář, managing director of the EDS Group.
The two new presses are scheduled to come on stream at the group’s facilities in Vác, Hungary and Poznan, Poland before the end of the year.
The EDS Group was founded in 1992 and has grown constantly ever since. It comprises seven companies in five countries and counts approximately 1,200 employees. The various locations produce advertising materials, magazines, books and other commercial print products. In addition, extensive services are offered in the fields of direct mailing, digital print and pre-press. The two latest C818 presses are earmarked to handle above all advertising brochures.
The C818 presses for EDS are being supplied with a maximum web width of 1,980 mm and maximum outputs of up to 45,000 or 43,500 72-page copies per hour.
