Together we had a long and intensive way to completing an eventful 2016, the most important of which undoubtedly was the international exhibition of printing and packaging industry - Drupa. Like a litmus test it reflected the surge of optimism in the market: both among manufacturers and printing houses.
Concerning the economic situation in general remains extremely difficult, it’s pleasure to know that during the year, colleagues from the printing houses were actively interested in the current market trends, allowing the possibilities of introducing of innovative technologies.
Speaking of books and magazines segment, we were able to implement some projects, including the major from them. This suggests that the book remains one of the most important elements of the printed products even for years to come.
At the same time, continuously was the interest to the cardboard packaging where we were able to significantly move forward.
Of course, without a close business cooperation with our partners and fulfill all commitments, primarily for high-quality and prompt equipment services as well as supply of spare parts and consumables it would be difficult to show good results, and we understand it very well.
We have extensive plans for 2017, including those in other areas of our business, and we will work to implement them together with our business partners and customers.
