Heidelberg Systemservice Rolls Out Foundation Design Option

Press release from the issuing company

Kennesaw, Ga. -- Heidelberg Systemservice now offers a new Foundation Design option as part of its Installation and Relocation Service for companies looking to install a new press, relocate production or combine multiple plants.

In developing this turnkey Foundation Design package, Heidelberg Systemservice has partnered with an Atlanta-based structural engineering firm to provide complete engineering and geotechnical services involved in designing and pouring a concrete reinforced flat pad prior to the installation of heavy printing machinery on a graded soil surface.

For a fixed price, the customer will receive a comprehensive design, including all professionally certified construction documents and on-site engineering support. The new service is offered for all Heidelberg Speedmaster products, as well as for Heidelberg Dymatrix 105 and 106 die cutters.

“Our new Foundation Design option is an extension of Heidelberg’s Systemservice Installation and Relocation Service, which provides planning and project management for the dismantling, transport and re-assembly of prepress, press and postpress equipment in a new location,” said Rodney Strasser, director, Systemservice product management. “In the market today, we see a marked increase in plant consolidations, as well as in the movement of equipment from one location to another. The Foundation Design Option is one more way Heidelberg Systemservice helps customers protect their valuable equipment investment.”
