When it expanded into smaller format digital printing in 2017, STG procured a machine from a various company and speedily realized that “the technological innovation was just far too messy and expensive for us to run successfully,” explained Owner John Ioannides. Obtaining hardly ever acquired from Heidelberg in the earlier, Ioannides discovered about the Versafire EP from the company tech for a further 1 of the company’s machines. He then begun conversing to other printers about their encounter with Versafire and quickly established-up a demonstration at Heidelberg’s Print Media Center Atlanta in Kennesaw, Ga. “So several times, you can listen to ‘pie in the sky’ information and facts about a machine when being marketed on it. Heidelberg was authentic with us. Just after observing that, the way the Versafire operates and the kind of resources you can run by way of it – it was a no-brainer,” said Ioannides.

The equipment is so steady I never require another person there though a position is working. It’s excellent!”

With its prior equipment, STG had to pay out each individual month just to have it on the floor. “Our business enterprise is extremely cyclical, so there are times through the year when we are not managing the machine,” explained Ioannides. “With Versafire, we’re only spending when we run it.”
With no other Heidelberg machines in its store, STG is amongst a lot of “non-traditional” clients that are deciding upon Heidelberg for electronic. Even though the Versafire by itself has proven to be profitable for STG, the overall “Heidelberg experience” has exceeded the company’s anticipations. In particular, Ioannides has been amazed with the “above and beyond” level of aid that his company has gained from Heidelberg immediately after the sale. “We’re a tiny company, so we’re under no circumstances heading to be 1 of Heidelberg’s biggest consumers and still, if I have a question or want to try out a new application, I make just one telephone simply call, and somebody is there to help us out.”
