Quality improvement and reduced energy costs through timely modernisation

The company is a family business offering a wide range of printed materials – magazines, books and advertising leaflets. The production capacity is tens of thousands of printing runs.

In response to increasing demand, the firm invested in increasing its production capacity and minimising energy costs.

The company approached PolSEFF for affordable financing for this investment. The PolSEFF team performed the analysis of the proposed technology, its potential for energy savings and profitability.

The final project included replacement of an eleven-year-old printing machine with a new one with increased colour capacity and a gloss application unit.

The €887,000 investment allowed the company to decrease its energy consumption by 40 per cent, leading to substantial cost savings. The investment will be repaid from energy savings and increased income in six and a half years. The new equipment also provides better quality gloss prints with a wider range of colours to satisfy the increasing demands of clients.

This project improved the company’s financial standing and competitiveness on the market. It also demonstrates that investments in energy efficiency are possible in all sectors.
