Monday, February 13, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

Multipress sp. z o.o. Printing house in Krakow,Poland, has customer initiated quality requirements that are increasing continuously. In order to remain competitive and a “nose ahead” in the fast growing markets in Eastern Europe it is therefore necessary to offer the highest level technology.

“In this sense,", Mr Andrzej Rabenda, president and owner of Multipress, said, "the decision to invest in a Gietz foil stamping machine was the logical consequence in order to represent reliability, precision and high production performance and to meet the raising quality level for print finished products for books, albums, brochures, labels and greeting cards.“

Multipress sp. z o.o. Printing house is the largest private printer in Krakow. It's history dates back to 1988, the end of the monopoly of state-owned printing, famous for its substitute packaging and smudged, greyish publications of books and albums, which were always in short supply. Over the years, Multipress Printing house has mastered several previously unavailable printing technologies, particularly for print quality improvement. In 2003, the company obtained the ISO 9001 certificate. They have opened  studio for graphic design and together with famous photographers from Krakow who are supporting Multipress’ customers with top brand designs.  

A Long-time experience in Foil Stamping, won them the Grand Prix Award 2010

With the intention to handle every customer request in house, Multipress has purchased some years ago a second hand Gietz FSA 790 EFF machine to enable the company to familiarize their operators with hot foil stamping. It was a perfect experience in this print finishing method. The on-going increase in quality demands and customer requirements made it necessary to invest in second  Gietz FSA 870 Compact machine, this one being a brand new machine.  

"Thanks to the purchase of our new Gietz FSA 870 press, we have gained a great experience and a high quality level of foiling that allowed us to win, in turn, several industry awards among them the award of Zrzeszenie Polskich Fleksografów and the Grand Prix 2010 for the excellent production of wine labels “Daos Cabernet”. The Gietz machine is a perfect fit to our range of first class printing equipment and to our high standard finishing line to keep up with international competitors” said Mr Andrzej Rabenda.


The company Gietz AG in Gossau, St Gallen, Switzerland is a traditional Swiss family business, managed by the 5th generation. Foil stamping machines from Gietz are operating successfully worldwide fro more than 50 years. Their core competence in foil stamping is well defined: industry leading products from professionals for professionals - in this specific case for Multipress Krakow!
