Press Release

Schätzl passes the digital finish line with the Scodix Ultra Pro press

Donauwörth, Germany –  06 September 2017 – Scodix, the world’s leading provider of digital enhancement solutions for the graphic arts industry, today announces the sale of a Scodix Ultra Pro™ Digital Enhancement Press with Foil Station to Schätzl, a print service provider (PSP) for over 35 years. The press will join an already impressive array of digital printing equipment at its Donauwörth facility in southern Germany, one of five sites across Europe.

To be used primarily for enhancing greeting cards, books, packaging, direct mail, and a wide range of specialty finished products, the new Ultra Pro with Foil press will support Schätzl in realizing its desired market position. As more and more companies look to adopt the benefits of digital enhancement, Schätzl is ahead of the curve and looking to capitalise on the advantages of being an early adopter.

“Our aim is to be a high-end PSP for digitally printed products and to act as an economic hub across continental Europe,” explains CEO Ulrich Schätzl, “After assuring our position in the digital print segment, the consequent next step is towards a solid position in digital enhancement. There is no doubt that we will be able to achieve this with our new Scodix Ultra Pro with Foil, which will provide products for all senses to satisfy and exceed our customers’ wishes.”

With an ethos for constant improvement over its 35-years, Schätzl recently modernized its Donauwörth print facility and saw digital enhancement as an obvious next step. Focusing on quality, reliability and service, Schätzl selected Scodix technology after rigorous testing. Scodix’ highly regarded service team based in DACH was also able to satisfy Schätzl`s expectations in terms of customer service, availability and flexibility.

“Our customers and their expectations are near and dear to us. We don’t want to just meet expectation but exceed it. Now we turn our attention to digital enhancement and the Scodix Ultra Pro will be key to our success, providing products for all the senses. It’s a challenge to find products that surprise and delight, but with the run lengths now possible and the variety of applications and quality of finish provided by the Scodix Ultra Pro, I believe we’ll be able to do that over and over for more of our customers than ever before,” states Schätzl.

“We are delighted that Scodix equipment forms such an integral part of Schätzl’s ambitions,” adds Scodix Co-Founder and VP EMEA Eli Grinberg. “Schätzl has a keen awareness of the benefits Scodix enhancement can bring to a business and realises the time is now to invest in the technology, before everyone has it! The Scodix Ultra Pro Digital Enhancement Press has a market leading range of applications, some of which cannot be replicated by any other process. So, we have no doubt Schätzl customers will be thrilled.”
