PostPrint Leipzig Teamfoto

Our team is made up of 12 dedicated employees with many years of experience in the field of postpress processing. The whole team worked for the renowned Leipzig-based bookbinding machine factory that traded under Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG until its closure. Each one of our technicians is well aware of the responsibility involved in servicing and repairing our client’s machines.

    The story so far – the history of PPL

    135 years of graphical machine building in Leipzig came to an end in 2014 with the sale of the city’s bookbinding machine factory, a company rich in tradition that had traded as part of Heidelberg PostPress Deutschland GmbH.

    As the new owners did not want to continue business activities at the Leipzig site, all the team’s expertise and creativity was at risk of being lost. Fortunately, the core team was confident that the specialist expertise in printing machines that they had accrued over decades was worth saving. After all, they had a considerable technological advantage over their competitors in many aspects.

    It was safe to assume that their machines would still be in operation for many years – and that there would therefore be demand for appropriate maintenance and repair services. What could have been more logical than founding a company that would offer these services for the machines already on the market?

    PPL PostPrint Leipzig launched in early 2015 and was immediately met with a wave of support from key players throughout the industry. We still enjoy this support today. It has allowed us to employ 12 members of staff and to continue our long line of tradition.

      Our offices and workshops

      We moved to new premises in January 2017. Larger offices and our own workshop and warehouse allow us to respond more quickly and offer a more diverse range of services. We now have the space to completely set up saddle stitcher machines. Another advantage is that we can not only refurbish second-hand machines, but also prepare and present them to prospective buyers for demonstration. We are also able to set up and fully refurbish our client’s machines or saddle stitcher feeders.

      Our warehouse now holds more spare parts than ever before, this means that we have many spare parts in stock and they can be ready for shipment in next to no time. So we can support you more quickly and get our client’s machines up and running again swiftly. At the same time, this also improves our ability to refurbish used stitching heads rapidly.
