The new generation of machines from Muller Martini will give companies further impetus for growth.
The time-tested proverb says it best: “If you don’t grow, you will shrink and eventually disappear”. In business, it has become a law of survival that companies need to grow in order to thrive. Fortunately for us, no sector projects profitable growth potential as potently as the graphic arts industry. When the economy is booming, newspapers and magazines count more pages, more advertising and more supplements.
Many printing plants and print finishing companies have grown steadily over the past decades with systems from Muller Martini. Some have grown into medium or large-sized companies from relatively modest beginnings. In certain cases the expansion has occurred over two or three generations. With our drupa slogan “Grow with us,” Muller Martini underlines the close partnerships that may have begun decades ago and continue to grow stronger every day.
Understanding another’s point of view
In the same way as a tree cannot exist without steady growth and constant renewal, Muller Martini relies on ongoing and fruitful dialog with its customers. A tree not only represents stability, rootedness and long-term value, but also projects the ability to adjust to changes in the environment. A tree grows steadily, both upwards and outwards.
The demands customers make of their production systems, and therefore also of the manufacturers of these systems, grow in tandem with changes to market demands. In order to gain the trust of our customers and to keep that trust over the years, it is important that we understand their requirements and explore new ideas with them. Individual solutions are more in demand today than ever before. Every business is facing very specific challenges from the market which must be overcome. To survive in this environment, Muller Martini is placing its reliance on innovative modular solutions. Modular systems allow for more flexibility in adapting to new production requirements. That lets you gear up for growth step-by-step. From basic models to high performance systems, the modular concept ensures your production is flexible and guarantees that your investment is safe. Customers stand to profit from Muller Martini’s core competence as a total supplier in print finishing and narrow web offset printing equipment.
Muller Martini supports successful partnerships and so its message to existing and potential customers is “Grow with us.”
For a strong partnership
At drupa, the presentation of a new machine generation will set an important milestone and underscore this competence. Reflecting on our theme, our new systems cover the graphic arts processes that hold the most potential for your growth and profits. These include OnDemand Solutions, web offset printing, press delivery systems, saddle stitching, perfect binding, hardcover production, and newspaper mailroom systems. All of our drupa machines are designed to provide new levels of efficiency, with their streamlined, ergonomic designs and new user-friendly features. Innovative workflow-enabled technology, meanwhile, brings you new impetus for growth.
This impetus for growth is urgently required by printers and bookbinderies, with constantly growing pressure on prices in the graphic arts industry. This is making the trend towards linking separate production stages into integrated networked solutions unstoppable. As a leading systems provider, Muller Martini is at the top of the trend. Our technology is flexible, highly automated and quickly changes over from job-to-job. The result: even your smallest production runs will be completed efficiently and cost-effectively and within the shortest possible time. Two key trends have been identified in the world markets for our industry, apart from pressure on prices and over-capacity: On the one hand are markets in which there is ample opportunity for volume processing. On the other are markets which have realized that they stand a better chance if they focus on specialization.
In order to remain successfully on top of the challenges of today, tomorrow and even the day after tomorrow, graphic arts companies need strong partners in the machine manufacturing industry on whom they can rely, from generation to generation.

“Muller Martini makes the best saddle stitchers in the world!”
|Casa Publicadora Brasileira, Tatuì (Brazil)|
Perfect binders StarPlus, Bolero, saddle stitchers Prima, PrimaPlus Amrys
“First of all, we have had a great deal of success for ten years with a StarPlus perfect binder – incidentally, we were the first Brazilian bookbindery to use the PUR process in production with this machine. Secondly, we are very pleased with the excellent After Sales Service offered by Muller Martini Brazil and we also received very good advice during the project phase for the new machine.”
|Fry Communications, Mechanicsburg Pa. (USA)|
Saddle stitchers 300, Prima, Tempo, Vivo log stacker, Corona C13 perfect binder
“We had two horizontal log stackers from two machine manufacturers in test simultaneously for a while. We were happy with both of them, but we were particularly impressed by the excellent log quality produced by the Vivo. That’s why we chose the Vivo, particularly since we have enjoyed an excellent partnership with Muller Martini in the saddle stitching segment for 25 year, we have great confidence in Muller Martini systems and value the good After Sales Service we receive from Muller Martini USA.”
|Infopress, Odorheiu Secuiesc (Rumänien)|
Adhesive binders Pony, Acoro A5, CoronaCompact CC12
“We were extremely happy with the Acoro perfect binder, but because, we are pleased to say, our order volume was increasing substantially, we needed a machine that would deliver a higher output. The step from the Acoro to the Corona was much easier than the change from the Pony to the Acoro three years earlier.”
|Koopmanndruck, Stuhr bei Bremen (D)|
Web offset presses Pronto , Concept, Concepta
“We have always felt throughout the years that Muller Martini takes our partnership seriously. That is why it was not hard to decide on a new printing press. An additional argument for choosing the Concepta was that the printing inserts are compatible with those of the Concept.”
|Kratis, Sveta Nedelja (Kroatien) |
Saddle stitchers Junior, 235, Presto, AmigoPlus perfect binder
“Our 235 saddle stitcher had been in operation since 1977 and was getting rather old; given what an excellent experience we had had with it, we wanted another reliable and easy to operate Muller Martini machine.”
Permanent growth is more than a basis – from generation to generation.
