Baldwin’s initiative
to overcome impact of recession

To strengthen their competitiveness and sustainability under the current and foreseeable market conditions, Baldwin Technology reacts to a global slowdown in the printing and printing press market with a worldwide package of measures.

Under their restructuring programme, the company has relocated assembly of their automatic blanket cleaning systems with brush technology from the Egelsbach location (Baldwin Oxy-Dry) to the Friedberg operations. Consolidating the complete German assembly of automatic blanket cleaning systems (brush and cloth type) at Baldwin Germany, the company has made all necessary provisions to ensure first class service support and spare parts supply to brush system users during the transition period and beyond. Managed by Baldwin Germany, the areas of engineering and sales & service will remain at the Egelsbach location. “By consolidating the cleaning system assembly, we will realise advantages in efficiency and costs. At the same time, we are preparing our company with a leaner structure to be able to react faster once the global economy recovers,” stated Dr Steffen Weisser, managing director of Baldwin Germany, commenting on the assembly relocation.

Meanwhile, Baldwin operations in North America have also been restructured and manufacturing of the JetStream web cleaning systems has been transferred from Switzerland to the Swedish operations of Baldwin Jimek.
