Four KBA Rapida Presses for Teckwah Group in Singapore

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

As its motto goes – “Best People, Best Solutions”, Teckwah Group along with KBA, two leading companies in the printing industry, worked closely together to develop the best-in-class solutions for Teckwah’s regional headquarters in Singapore. Again Teckwah Industrial Corporation Ltd (Teckwah) installed two state-of-the-art KBA Rapidas in the B1 format at its new regional headquarters - Pixel Red, after two Rapidas were commissioned the previous year. 

Pixel Red – Teckwah’s Print Media Hub

Teckwah recently welcomed two brand new Rapidas at its new Print Media Hub - Pixel Red, which serves as Teckwah’s high value technology-driven output centre for new markets such as packaging design, prototyping and testing as well as digital data management. This modern and architecturally distinctive Pixel Red complex is aimed to attract other print media businesses and related industries that will complement each other to create an eco-system of print related services within one location. 

A six-colour KBA Rapida 105 with coater was installed in Pixel Red early June, followed by a KBA Rapida 106 four-colour perfecting press with coater in July. Both presses are equipped with state-of-the-art technology along with highest automation. The two new Rapidas are connected to KBA’s Logotronic production management system and the KBA supported MIS Optimus Dash to further increase performance, flexibility and economic efficiency for Teckwah. 
“The project was completed within a very tight time frame. When Teckwah shifted into the new Pixel Red building, we needed to ensure that the production will not be interrupted. Together with Teckwah, we worked out a plan and everything was spot-on”, said Stefan Segger, Managing Director of KBA Asia Pacific. “We knew that it was a major investment for Teckwah to move into Pixel Red, meanwhile it is surely the right move to also invest in new technology in order to be successful in a very competitive print market”, he added.

Over the past two years, Teckwah has invested substantially into its print related business. “These investments were necessary for the sustained and continuous growth of our business and to keep pace with customers’ constant demand for faster, better and more cost effective services as well as cutting-edge solutions. Our trust in technology from KBA has never been disappointing. Increasing automation helps us to achieve higher levels of productivity and further increases in efficiency. We are confident that the new technology will continue to help us in our growth”, said Thomas Chua Kee Seng, Chairman and Managing Director of Teckwah Group.
