Thursday, June 09, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Publisher Dr Hubert Burda used his evening appointment in Düsseldorf on Tuesday to pay a short visit to the KBA trade show stand. He was particularly interested in the KBA RotaJET L digital press. The distinguished publisher and media expert whose reputation extends far beyond the borders of Germany was accompanied by Heiko Engelhardt, vice-president of BurdaDruck, and Ingo Raab, head of business development. Further guests included Bruno Müller, CEO of Swiss postpress company Müller Martini, Gian Carlo Cerutti, CEO of the Cerutti Group in Italy, and Jürgen Freier, managing director of the HP sales organisation for the DACH region (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). Various title pages of the high-circulation magazine “mein schöner Garten” produced by publishing house Burda were printed on the KBA RotaJET especially for this high-ranking visit. Dr Hubert Burda was visibly impressed by the quality and performance that can now be achieved with high-volume digital printing.

Hubert BurdaMedia is one of Europe’s largest publishing and media enterprises with annual sales of over €2.5bn, more than 500 analogue (print) and digital media products (BurdaDigital), and over 10,000 employees. In the past BurdaDruck invested primarily in wide TRB gravure presses from the KBA facility in Frankenthal and today continues to operate gravure plants in Germany, France and India, at which alongside numerous own publishing products, magazines, catalogues and promotional material by external contractors is produced in high volumes.
