For the production of its high-quality books, Artron invested in several Muller Martini solutions over the last 12 months including two Diamant 60 booklines, four Ventura MC book sewing machines, two Acoro A6 perfect binding lines and three gathering machines. At the drupe, the ambitious company decided to purchase a third Diamant and a fifth Ventura.
The agreement was signed in a festive ceremony at Muller Martini’s drupa stand. Artron CEO Jie Wan briefly presented his company and its goals. Bruno Müller, CEO of Muller Martini, expressed his admiration of the company’s fast growth: “It is remarkable how quickly the company has made inroads into new business segments – Artron is really a special company.”
The agreement signed between Artron and Muller Martini at the drupa covers not only the supply of the two latest machines, but also a strategic partnership. That includes, in keeping with the MMServices package, Muller Martini Hong Kong supporting Artron in the maintenance of its machines, as well as in the recruitment and training of machine operators.
