Günter Korbacher about this success: “To be honest, we were overwhelmed from this enormous encouragement of our customers and prospects all over the world. Therefore our initial doubts due to our new location at hall 12 were quickly flown away. Especially the direct proximity to drupa Touchpoint Packaging certainly contributed to this success, where we had the pleasure to present our goods as well as the other members of PrintCity at our common both. However also our new corporate identity presented at drupa as well as our latest products and systems were highly appreciated and our 22-man-team had barely time to breath.”
