Dear reader,

In only a couple of months, the Ipex 2014 - one of the most important European trade fairs for the printing industry, will open its gates. And then we can see if the organizer's new concept will successfully maintain the show's status - which is up for debate after numerous cancellations of major manufacturers, despite the event being moved to London. There is also a little surprise at the beginning of the year: Gallus reported that Heidelberg is has quietly separated from its subsidiary CSAT, the producers of the Linoprint L-digital printing systems. It will be interesting to see how the group justifies this strategy. We wish you informative reading of our colorful mix of the latest industry news!
