Leading Mexican folding carton printer Cartograf counts on Heidelberg

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

Juan José Paramo established his printshop in 1982 together with his uncles, back then unexperienced in the printing business. Today, the professional packaging printshop is market leader in Mexico. Cartograf mainly produces high-quality folding cartons for the tobacco, food, and consumer goods industries. When Páramo founded a new plant in 2012, he decided to invest in the best equipment possible. It is planned to extend the new plant - presently on a production floor of 50,000 square feet - to 180,000 square feet, in order to build a stable business for the future. Thus, Páramo decided to invest in equipment from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg), which is known for durability and longevity. 

"Heidelberg offers multiple benefits: long tradition, good service, high local service part availability, great customer support, the best components and superior mechatronical production. I know that with Heidelberg my company is built on a firm foundation," says Juan José Paramo. 

These were also reasons to decide for a Speedmaster XL 162 very large format press and the brand new Speedmaster CX 102 launched at drupa 2012. Particularly the Speedmaster XL 162 state-of-the-art machine equipped with all its peripherals and the logistics system are well thought through and facilitate machine control. Thanks to the integration of prepress and press by Heidelberg Prinect systems, Cartograf benefits from fast makeready times, which guarantee the company a competitive edge.  Despite economically trying times in Mexico, Cartograf invested considerably: "It is crucial to invest in businesses, which will never be forced off the market. And the packaging industry is definitely one of these business branches, since all consumer goods need packaging." 

Cartograf will continue to grow. As next step it is planned to include a paper mill into their operation and to process the company's entire paper production on Heidelberg presses. 
Cartograf intends to continuously follow the newest technological trends to stay competitive in the market. 

André Schneider, general director of Heidelberg Mexico said: "The investment decision of Cartograf strengthens the development of packaging print in Mexico and simultaneously underlines the leading position of Heidelberg in both commercial and packaging printing in this market."
