Durst was able to resume partial operations at the beginning of April, as the printing systems for the label and packaging industry were classified as systemically important. Now the Italian government has launched phase 2 to resume public life.
As an export-oriented company, Durst - starting immediately and in compliance with all necessary safety regulations - can start up production. On May 4 at the latest, the majority of the Durst’ler can be reached again at the headquarters in Brixen and the Customer Experience Center is then available again for customer appointments, machine demonstrations and acceptance tests.
Of course, Durst does not expect an immediate return to "normality", which is why concepts for virtual presentations and webcasts have been developed in the past few weeks and are now being implemented in a timely manner for interaction with the stakeholders.
Durst will provide information on the respective offers and measures on the website www.durst-group.com and on social channels. Of course, international customers can also contact the global Durst branches for individual inquiries and priorities.
We will support these meetings as best we can with the technical possibilities in the Durst headquarters and Customer Experience Center. We are really looking forward to phase 2 and the opportunity to take the next step into normality with new interaction options.
A pioneering company facing a business meltdown has reconfigured its software in 24 hours and is now producing face masks. DCP Digitaldruck & Profiltechnik in Gütersloh, Germany, secured at least two weeks’ work on the first day it stated its new online business, which includes the ability to design your own bespoke mask.
The super-fast turnaround to set up www.i-product.de was enabled through Durst’s Smart Shop and Smart Editor software. It also includes online design possibilities. Driven by the mantra of innovation, Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, offers complete solutions from pixel to output as it continues its transformation into a highly integrated process service provider, which includes expanding its world-class software solutions.
DCP, which has been supplying graphics and large format digital prints to the event and trade fair for more than 20 years, had virtually all this work demand wiped out due to the cancellation of trade fairs and events across the world. It also knew that large quantitities of masks are in demand to help combat Covid-19.
Oliver Knaup, Managing director of DCP, said: “We have been losing about 90% of our normal business for large format work in the exhibition and events industry, so we had to do something quickly. Durst provided so much incredible support so fast. I contacted them on a Friday and that same day they reconfigured the Smart Shop and Durst Editor software. Over the weekend we took some photos of the new mask opportunities and then started on the Monday. We are absolutely delighted with our Smart Shop software and the support from Durst. We now have a new template and new product on the web and you have a perfect marketing tool with the online shop.”
Despite sewing expertise among staff at a premium, DCP, a long-time Durst customer, is already producing up to 1,000 face masks a day. “The user friendliness of the flexible software has already been praised by many customers and means we can offer a large design portfolio – and now face masks,” said Mr Knaup. “We see the production of masks as our contribution to the preservation of jobs for our employees, the economy as a whole and a help for everyone. We also produce white masks, which we supply to pharmacies or, on request, protective masks with company logo.
“Durst continues to provide outstanding support in a true partnership. And now it’s letting us serve the wider community with protective masks in the global fight against coronavirus.”
Thomas Schurzfeld, Managing Director of Durst Software Development GmbH, said: “Our world-class software is extremely flexible, scalable and adaptable to cope with virtually any requirement. DCP is a perfect example of what can be achieved quickly, in this case with our help setting up a new online business complete with bespoke design possibilities in a single day. We’re proud to have helped them.”
Dear Durst`ler all over the world,
With a heavy heart, we close our headquarters form 16. March to 3. April. Fortunately, we have no more cases, and we are all doing well. Still, out of solidarity with our families and out of respect for doctors and medical staff, we are doing what helps most: we are actively contributing to stop the further spread of the virus and stay at home.
We took the issue very seriously from the very beginning, and we continue to do so. We help wherever we can - for example, with masks and protective suits for the hospital in Brixen, which, like many institutions, is currently struggling with a lack of resources.
All our branches are active - with the restrictions that apply in the respective countries. A networked trunk team also works for the headquarters - wherever possible from the home office. The highest security measures are in place for employees who have to stay at the company. The branches have stocked spare parts as a precautionary measure, and ink logistics are maintained - a service team can be reached remotely in case of emergencies.
We will use these two weeks to monitor the situation and work out scenarios and then hopefully - taking into account the legal status and only if we can ensure the safety of the employees and their families - restart production.
These are challenging times - we are sure that you, our customers and partners, will show solidarity with our employees and us. We are confident that we are doing the right thing and that we will come out of this situation stronger.
Please take care of yourself and stay safe and healthy.
CEO, Durst Group
In light of the rapidly evolving situation regarding COVID-19 in mainland Europe, and in close dialogue with its national Associations and exhibitors, FESPA has today taken the decision to postpone FESPA Global Print Expo 2020, European Sign Expo 2020 and Sportswear Pro 2020, originally scheduled to take place at IFEMA Madrid from 24th to 27th March 2020.
Based on feedback from exhibitors, FESPA will now seek to reschedule the events for a later date, precise timing and venue still to be determined based on venue availability.
FESPA CEO Neil Felton explains: “Until this week, our actions with regard to COVID-19 – including the pre-emptive action taken in February regarding exhibiting companies from China – have been informed by guidance from the relevant international and national authorities, with the primary objective of safeguarding the health and wellbeing of exhibitors and visitors. However, in light of the recent spread of the virus in specific areas of mainland Europe, we have consulted with our stakeholders and have concluded that it is in the best interests of our community to defer the events to a later date.”
FESPA will provide an update regarding revised event dates in due course.

Brixen, Italy - 15.02.2019 - Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital printing and production technologies, has announced that Printeos Group has invested in a Durst Tau 330 RSC inkjet single-pass press to drive digitisation.
The European specialist in adhesive label production chose the system to transform production at Adhesivos del Segura, a company in Murcia, south-east Spain, it acquired three years ago. Founded in 1986, Adhesivos del Segura has enjoyed year-on-year growth mirroring the recent expansion of Murcia's food industry. Today, it employs 154 people and works with leading brands in the food, cosmetics, industry and wellness sectors.
Digital printing will play a key role in Printeos Group's medium and long-term strategy for the label market, which is why Adhesivos del Segura was chosen to spearhead growth in Spain. Carlos Coll, Printeos Group Label Division Manager, explained the first step after acquisition was to begin the digitalization process. A survey was conducted and 15 options were evaluated. “Immediately we realized the inkjet technology was the most suitable option because of its productive capacity and lower operating costs,” he said.
The Durst Tau 330 RSC was picked because it supported the operation’s industrial, high volume approach. Coll added: “Our first objective was to reach the capacity to digitalize at least 10% of Adhesivos del Segura production in the first year. To achieve that goal, we needed high productivity systems. In addition, the demanding markets we work in require a heightened level of quality, and today not all inkjet solutions are able to offer that. Durst’s Tau RSC systems stayed ahead of the competitors’ proposals and were the only ones that could meet both requirements simultaneously.”
Carlos Espinosa, who is responsible for the prepress department and is head of the digital project, confirmed installation has gone well: “The 'start-up stage' was fast and simple and the machine is already working at double shift,” he said. “The transitions of colour and the lights and shadows management are amazing. The machine also offers vibrant colours that our customers really love.”
All orders under 2,000 meters are now assigned to the Durst Tau, but when the Jumbo Option is added allowing the use of 4,000 meter rolls, maximum order size will be increased considerably.
Coll concludes: "The future is going to be more and more competitive.The label sector will continue to see between 4 % and 6 % growth.Printeos Group has ambitious objectives and we expect growth at respectable rates, but we know to get it we will have to do our best and be prepared to satisfy any new requirements demanded by customers in the future.”
Helmuth Munter, Segment Manager, Durst Label & Packaging Printing, said: “The positive growth that Printeos Group expects to enjoy supports our own bright outlook for the industry. We are delighted that after such a thorough market evaluation Printeous Group chose our Tau 330 RSC to spearhead its drive for success. Affordable digital label printing is now available to increasing numbers of converters and printers.”
