May 13, 2004 -- Polish printshop Poligrafia S.A. has ordered an M-600 web offset printing press from Heidelberg at drupa 2004. Poligrafia was founded in 1991 and is already the third largest web offset printshop in Poland. The company produces magazines, brochures, catalogs and books for the national and international market at its Kielce and Starachowice sites.
The demand for print products in Poland has grown enormously over the past 10 years or so, partly due to the launch of new magazines on the market.
This success comes not long after Reproprint in Prague ordered an M-600, intended to produce magazines and advertising supplements, on the very first day of the trade show.
And a third Heidelberg M-600 is also to be shipped to Asia for printshop SNP Leefung Printers in Shenzhen, China. The press configuration features an integrated JF-44 folder, a Contiweb web splicer and an Ecoweb dryer.
