For over 170 years, Heidelberg has stood for quality and future viability. Correspondingly, Heidelberger has proved to be a reliable and highly innovative partner to the global printing industry.

The company has a long tradition but also helps define the future trends in its industry due to state-of-the-art technologies and innovative business ideas. Their mission is to shape the digital future of the industry.

The best part? Not only have we got more users, we have achieved a consistently high customer retention rate. And we only see ourselves soaring higher from hereon.

Their portfolio for printing machines ranges from cutting-edge digital technologies and offset printing machines attractively equipped as

standard to individually-configured special machines for maximum productivity and every possible print application.

With a focus on digitization, the company is addressing a global market in which experts expect to see moderate growth in the coming years, with strong foundations for their products and services, thanks to an annual print production volume of over €400 billion in packaging, advertising and label printing.

They are also addressing new markets beyond the printing industry. For example, they have successfully established themselves in the e-mobility market with an expertise in power electronics. Their printing technology also gives them access to the production of printed organic electronics, a future market with great potential.

Leading the Way

With a market share of more than 40 percent for sheet-fed offset presses, they have been able to consolidate their position as the printing industry’s market and technology leader in 2020 too. Consolidated sales amounted to almost €2.35 billion in the financial year 2019/2020. Together with their sales partners, around 11,300 employees in total at 250 production sites in 170 countries around the globe ensure the implementation of their customers’ requirements and their continuous development in the market.
