“Drupa gives us an opportunity to present our new organisation to both existing and potential new customers and inform them about the new options on offer," said Marco Carlini, head of printing and packaging for the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa). “We are now able to offer them the full spectrum of printing technology from a single source – and we can do so around the globe, too, thanks to our global footprint with manufacturing sites in Brazil and China."
