Hannanprint's reorientation and investment has a single target: “peak performance” in all sectors of the company. This will further increase the company's competiveness. The highly productive and automated LITHOMAN press will show its strengths in this challenging environment, explains Tony Dedda, Managing Director: “We do not expect any significant improvements in market conditions during 2013, but we will profit from the efficiency of the larger and better-situated production site, which is equipped with the latest printing technology, offers customers excellent service, and helps us to keep costs under control.” News Limited and Fairfax, for example, have concluded long-term contracts with Hannanprint to produce most of the magazines that are enclosed with their newspapers. Production facilities at Warwick Farm are equipped with the latest technology to make them even more energy-efficient and sustainable. Two examples: dryer heat recovery supports the air conditioning of all production areas.
Since the IPMG Group purchased its first LITHOMAN in 1999, manroland web systems has worked in close partnership with the Australians. “We are proud to help shape the new Warwick Farm site because it is a flagship for the printing industry,” explains manroland web systems. Steve Dunwell adds, “Warwick Farm is one of the most modern and highly-automated printing centres worldwide. We are happy to play a meaningful role in this future-oriented venture. We are sure that Hannanprint has chosen the correct strategy.”
