With vaccine rollouts around the world gathering pace and Covid liberation in sight, the German press builder has cancelled short-time working at its factory.
The company is ramping up production in anticipation of a post-Coronavirus surge in demand for its state-of-the-art “Evolution” family of presses.
Rafael Peñuela Torres – CEO Manroland Sheetfed Group says: “As in many other businesses our growth path until beginning of 2020 was disrupted by the pandemic. But finally, we have observed during the last months in most of the countries a significantly increased number of projects for new machinery, especially in large size. The level of new orders in the first weeks of 2021 confirms this change of trend in our industry. In order to anticipate a higher demand for our printing presses we are increasing with immediate effect our factory’s output to shorten lead times. “
