swissQprint Celebrates Ten Years
Monday, September 18, 2017
Press release from the issuing company
swissQprint is celebrating ten years in business. Sticking to its focus on high-quality inkjet flatbed systems, the Swiss company has successively built up and strengthened its position in this segment. It now operates in 40 countries, owns three subsidiaries and counts 110 employees.
The swissQprint name surfaced out of nowhere ten years ago. Today, the brand is a byword for digital printing systems boasting high quality, huge versatility and Swiss reliability. Reto Eicher, Hansjörg Untersander and Roland Fetting laid the foundation for this success story in September 2007. A decade later in 2017, there are now 75 people working at the head office and production base in Switzerland, and 35 spread across three subsidiaries. In addition, there are sales and service partners representing swissQprint in close to 40 countries around the globe.
In October of that year, swissQprint established a US subsidiary to intensify activities in the American market. A second subsidiary in Japan started business in March 2017, and a third one in Germany the following month. These are purely sales and service operations; development and production are all done at headquarters in order to maintain the leanest possible processes together with high product quality.
To date there are somewhat more than 900 swissQprint printers in the field. Certain models, specialised applications and options have earned swissQprint several industry awards over the years; last year even brought a business award.
Another two years on, swissQprint launched a new generation of printers in the shape of the Nyala 2. The grand total of machines supplied hit the five hundred mark in February 2015, and three months later the generational transition had come full circle with the launch of Oryx 2 and Impala 2.
In early 2017 swissQprint brought to market the efficiency-enhancing 4×4 versions of Impala 2 and Nyala 2. Impala LED and Nyala LED, which cure UV inks using LED technology, premièred at Fespa 2017. Oryx LED is set to follow within the year, at which point the third generation will be similarly complete.
The three founders of the independent joint-stock company continue to play active roles in the business. They can look back with pleasure at how ten years have transformed their initial bold move. And they also look to the future, where they aim to continue pushing ahead with innovations and practical solutions that resonate with the market.
