We must also consider, at different levels, which opportunities we take, the direction in which we want to develop and where exactly we want to invest. The new system is one of the responses to this,” says Herbert Forker, CEO at Siegwerk.

A trial operation of the new Blending Center is already successfully underway and it will soon be running at full capacity. Compared to the previous production setup, the new processs is even more efficient and transparent, clearly increasing the site's productivity. Additionally, the new facility will enable safer and cleaner production and support Siegwerk's endeavors for increased sustainability. The company has built an extensive, global production and service network over the years to optimally provide its customers with inks and varnishes in Siegwerk's proven quality. This now consists of 16 base ink production facilities, the Centers of Excellence, where basic products are manufactured worldwide according to a uniform standard, as well as 50 blending and dosing facilities, or Blending Centers, where ink solutions are finished and adapted to individual customer requirements.
