(June 07, 2008) One week after the opening of drupa 2008, the two owners of SB Graphic and SB Graphic Plus, came to Düsseldorf to confirm the order of a Speedmaster XL 162. The medium-sized print shop based in Aulnay sous Bois (Paris area) will be the first in France to install the very-large format press in October 2008.
The print shop is already equipped with a Speedmaster CD 102-5+L and a Speedmaster CD 102-6+L and a Speedmaster CD 74-5+LX. A new Speedmaster CD 102-5+LX has been installed last month. Specialized in printing for the French luxury goods industry, SB Graphic intends to enter the publishing printing market in France and to extend their portfolio to packaging printing with the Speedmaster XL 162.
Created in 1992, this company is now producing at two different sites (SB Graphic and SB Graphic Plus). "We have been impressed by the performance, the quality and the size of the machine when we came to Wiesloch-Walldorf for the very first tests, but we are still impressed when seeing it on the show", explain Bruno de Bue and Richard Moraly.
