Marking the next milestone in the commercial roll-out of its Landa S10 Nanographic Printing Press, Landa invited customers comprised of leading print and packaging houses around the world to its facilities in Rehovot, Israel, where they experienced the business progress made since drupa 2016.
This included a tour of Landa’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities showing Landa presses being assembled, tested and readied for shipping. Customers also had the opportunity to see the first Landa press at a production site, when they toured Graphica Bezalel, the Israel based folding carton, packaging and label convertor that is the initial Beta site for the Landa S10 digital press.
‘We are very proud to be the first business to install a Landa press and offer Nanography to the market,’ said Eyal Harpak, director of Graphica Bezalel. ‘We’ve been impressed with the professional and dedicated installation team from Landa. They had the press up and running producing saleable sheets quicker than even we’d hoped for.’
Graphica Bezalel received its Landa S10 Digital Press in August 2017 and is using it to support local as well as international companies including Calvin Klein, Carlsberg, Nestlé, Coca-Cola, SodaStream and others. Through its colour palette and medium-run digital print capability, the company’s Landa S10 is expected to provide new and profitable folding carton work, with a clear point of differentiation in a crowded market.
Yishai Amir, Landa CEO, commented, ‘With our first beta press now successfully installed at Graphica Bezalel, we are proud to host Landa customers and prospects here in Israel – showing them the incredible results from the Landa S10 and the huge infrastructure investment we’ve put in place to support our growth.
‘As we ramp-up production, we look forward to shipping more presses in the coming months and to making them commercially available in 2018.’
