Heidelberg is further expanding its commitment to the growing label market. As part of this, the Gallus Group sites in Switzerland and Germany have already been strengthened through targeted investments and divided into competence centres. The next step will be to reorganise the headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland, and develop it into a competence centre for digital label printing.
The new customer demonstration centre is to be opened at the site at the end of the year as the Gallus Experience Center. The expansion of the digital printing portfolio will be accompanied by comprehensive innovations in equipment, service, software and ink. A total of around 160 people work in St. Gallen, including business and R&D management as well as finance, sales, service, marketing and purchasing. The new office infrastructure and the Experience Center will be reorganised in the main building of the site.
“With targeted investments in the Gallus Group, we want to gain further momentum in the growing label market,” said Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO of Heidelberg. “The reorientation of our site in St. Gallen into a competence centre for digital label printing underlines the high strategic importance for Heidelberg in the packaging sector.”
