Rapida 75E for Finnish Printshop

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Press release from the issuing company

After scrutinising all the B2 (29in) presses on the market, Finnish printer Painotalo Seiska in Iisalmi, a town with 22,000 inhabitants some 450km (280m) northeast of Helsinki, has placed an order with KBA for a Rapida 75E. The four-colour coater press with extended delivery is scheduled to ship in August.

Major factors informing its decision were the quality of both the press and printed products, the level of automation and confidence in KBA. Management was also impressed by the positive feedback from other KBA users in terms of service and support.

Chairman of the board Henri Pietikäinen says: “Our guiding principle has always been quality, which means that in everything we do, quality plays a major role. We are a typical commercial printer, but in future we'll be specialising in certain areas. As this investment is a part of our new strategy, it was very important for us to choose the right partner for the future, and we are confident that we made the right decision.”

“This is the second Rapida 75E press we've sold to Finland in just a couple of months,” says KBA Nordic's director Marcus Juselius. “Painotalo Seiska's choice of press meant a change of vendor, which means we're doing something right.”

Established in 1981, Painotalo Seiska has twelve employees and is known as a quality printshop where every job is considered important and handled with equal care.
