Manroland orders surge to 10 year record high
Order intake for new presses at Manroland Sheetfed, the German printing press builder, reached a 10 year record high in June.
In February, the company cancelled short-time working and began ramping up production at its Offenbach factory in anticipation of the increased demand.
“The reasons for the very strong order intake in June, and for the year to date, are two-fold: Since the beginning of 2021 we have been seeing an increasing number of projects for both 700 and 900 size presses, as printers around the world began to regain investment confidence post Covid. Moreover, the ROLAND 700 Evolution and the recently launched ROLAND 900 Evolution series presses are absolute state-of-the-art technology that offer significant commercial advantages. Our customers recognise this,” said Peter Conrady, Head of Global Sales.
