The Euro-Druckservice GmbH (EDS) has been founded in 1992 and is the leading print service provider of Central- and Eastern Europe with eight printing sites in Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary and Romania. 18 presslines from manroland web systems are producing at the moment. Now the EDS Group has decided to invest once more in the technology of the market leader from Augsburg. The new LITHOMAN S 48 page press is supposed to print mainly magazines and to increase the productivity of the Severotisk printing plant in Usti nad Labem (Czech Republic). Furthermore, EDS has opted for a long-term service contract with manroland web systems as one partner for all needs.

For us it is an important step towards strengthening and further developing our leading market position in Central and Eastern Europe. Regarding this, we further trust in the comprehensive project competence of manroland web systems.”
