Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) made significant progress with the Group’s targeted digital transformation in financial year 2017/2018 (April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018). By the beginning of June, several customers had already opted for the new subscription model that offers Heidelberg products and services as part of a usage-based all-in contract running over several years. The total of over 30 contracts being targeted for the new financial year 2018/2019 looks set to generate business worth some €150 million over the standard five-year term of these models. However, as the number of contracts concluded is just starting to pick up, this will only be reflected in the company’s figures to any significant extent from financial year 2019/2020 onward, when it will also help stabilize Group sales. In addition, the series production of digital presses for packaging and label printing (Primefire and Labelfire), which also started in financial year 2017/2018, will have an increasingly positive impact on sales.

Royle Printing, recently awarded the Best Workplace designation in the 2020 Best Workplace in the Americas (BWA) awards competition is pleased to announce that Jeremy Nehmer joined Royle Printing as Supply Chain Coordinator. Jeremy will be responsible for managing day-to-day operations with the supply chain team.
Jeremy is a new graduate from University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh and was a Distribution & Operations Intern over the summer for the 2019 Royle Internship Program. The program consists of a three-month commitment where students can work full or part-time. Based on the students’ interests and major, each intern is able to fully immerse themselves into their chosen sector – prepress, press, bindery, distribution, customer service, account management or sales. “The internship program is so much more than learning the trade of print; each intern becomes a part of the Royle family and culture,” stated Dawn Webber, Director of Human Resources.
“What I found beneficial was the CEO was a few steps away and you have the whole team at your fingertips,” stated Jeremy Nehmer.
“Royle Printing is one of the premier companies in the printing industry for employee experiences,” said Adriane Harrison, vice president of Human Relations at Printing Industries of America. “The BWA award is a testament to Royle Printing’s leadership in developing an ‘employer of choice’ culture.”
The BWA awards are awarded to companies that create the best environments for their employees. The BWA awards, presented by Printing Industries of America, is awarded annually to only those companies meeting rigorous standards in human resources practices.
