Sustainability as a business model
“Besides instantly improving our print quality, installing the Speedmaster SM 74-4-H also significantly increased productivity by dramatically cutting our makeready times. On average, our productivity is up 300 percent!” That is how Sirirat Rungruengyoth, owner of Roongsiri Greenprint in Thailand, describes the company’s investment in Speedmaster technology from Heidelberg.
The technology at the company had to be completely overhauled as a result of a natural disaster – the floods that hit Thailand in 2011. The water completely destroyed the existing print shop and all the printing machinery. When starting anew, Sirirat Rungruengyoth decided to make no compromises in terms of quality and environmentally friendly production.
Roongsiri Publishing thus became Roongsiri Greenprint. “We want to use natural resources carefully and ultimately show respect for the environment”, says Ms. Sirirat, describing the realignment of her print shop. “Heidelberg is the ideal partner to help us implement these requirements. While improving quality and increasing productivity, we are helping to protect the environment at the same time.” For example, power consumption has already been cut considerably to a third of what it was before. So it comes as no surprise to hear that the next investment – from Heidelberg, of course, – is already in the pipeline. “We plan to install a Speedmaster CD 102 with the aim of further expanding our business in the future and moving into the packaging market – in a way that is environmentally friendly, of course!”
