The power of resiliency

Never has the greeting “Happy and Healthy New Year” taken on such gravitas. If 2020 proved anything, it’s humankind’s resiliency: the ability to evolve, rebuild, and recover after a major global setback. At Muller Martini, I’m proud to say we have demonstrated unbelievable resiliency during these uncertain times.   While…

Optimum productivity and performance? It comes at a price.

Within most industries, manufacturers and service providers get to choose how they can differentiate themselves from their competitors. Unfortunately, given today’s challenging newspaper production environment, price often plays a significant role. But, make no mistake, the lowest price typically comes at a cost.   That’s why I recommend that when…

As a year like no other comes to a close, take time for some housecleaning.

Although this year has been a first for many difficult realities, we have adjusted and, thankfully, thrived in the face of adversity. We have turned our dining rooms, kitchens, and basements into home offices and schools.  And, we are grateful that our particular business can still succeed despite these challenging…

The 2020 finish line is almost here. Be sure your account information is up to date.

As we enter the fourth quarter, we are reminded of the hardships the virus has had on our businesses and our personal lives.  Hopefully, we have been able to take some positives from the slowing down of our hectic routines and our unexpected time together. Fall tends to be a…

Sustainability series (II): the footprint of print

In the first part of our blog trilogy last week on the subject of sustainability, we discussed the subject of climate change. What does that have to do with the printing industry? Industrial production is responsible for as much as 9 percent of global CO2 emissions – how high is…
