The current economic climate is having far-reaching implications for companies in the printing indus- try. Interest rates make finance expensive, exchange rates make importing capital equipment difficult and through all of this printers still need to be able to invest in additional or new capacity. Failing to invest at the right time can prove disastrous, but how do printers afford the solutions which will help them to remain competitive or to be able to grow their companies?
The answer in the high-value capital equipment market comes in the form of pre-owned or second-hand equipment. The problem here is sourcing the right equipment from a company with a solid reputation for supplying equipment with back-up, support and some form of guarantee. Another factor is being able to find the right machine. Printers have very specific production requirements and finding quality second-hand presses with the right specifications is not al- ways easy.
This great Heidelberg was supllied, and completely rebuild, painted and fitted with new Böttcher Rollers onsite by Widasla Technologies. I am extremely proud of my team of world class engineers David Sedeane, Victor and Kabelo for once again doing an amazing job. A big thank you to Mr John Worsley from BBR Graphics for once again supplying us with a great machine and Mr Shaun Matthews at Electrobillity for doing the most amazing job on the electrical side like he always does as well as Mr David Kerr from DK Printmasters in the UK from setting the machine up and making it sing like a new machine. I wish the great people from Zero Plus Gary, Gerrit and Francios many years of great printing and i thank you for becoming part of the Widasla family. We will be walking a long Road together in the future.
That the printing industry is capital intensive is no surprise. Even the cheapest equipment carries a high purchase price but cost is measured in much more than the initial outlay. Service, support and spares are all an integral part of the cost of ownership. While this is important with new equipment it is even more so with second-hand.
The current economic climate in south Africa marketplace has resulted in a significant shift from new to second-hand. However, South African printers do not, and cannot, compromise on quality and such they face the problem of running the gauntlet of dealing with less than reputable suppliers when sourcing second-hand equipment.
