MAN Roland Gets Large Order for Six LITHOMAN systems
Press release from the issuing company
May 11, 2004 -- Successful show start at MAN Roland: PMP Print, the biggest commercial printing company in Australia and New Zealand with numerous locations all over the continent, ordered six LITHOMAN printing systems on 8 May, the third day of drupa. This is the largest commercial press order ever placed in this part of the world and has a price tag in the medium double-digit million Euro region.
PMP Print has ordered six LITHOMAN presses, two in the 64-page format and four in the 32-page format. Installations are scheduled to commence mid-2005 in Brisbane (Queensland) and New South Wales.
PMP’s production plants are aligned as precisely as possible on the fore-casted demand of its customers and offers them additional benefits accordingly. Which is the reason why the investment was preceded by a thorough analysis of different scenarios regarding the development of the Australian market for products like catalogues or newspaper supplements. A work-shop conducted by MAN Roland together with local sales partner IPP and PMP provided the basis for an investment plan for the future that precisely matches the strategy and the demands identified.
The extremely successful development of PMP Print has been accompanied by a cooperation with MAN Roland and IPP that now goes back for 40 years. The world’s first 48-page LITHOMAN was installed at PMP at the beginning of the eighties, and this was followed by the world’s second and third 64-page LITHOMAN presses at the end of the nineties.
