The Druckstudio Group has won the prestigious Druck&Medien Award in the category “Annual Report Printer of the Year”. Werner Drechsler, Managing Director of the Druckstudio Group, accepted the award at a ceremony in Berlin on November 5. The Druck&Medien Awards are the biggest and most important awards in the German printing industry.
Thanks to especially high-quality annual reports, the Druckstudio Group was able to beat off stiff competition in the “Annual Report Printer of the Year” category. When reviewing the submissions, the panel of 31 judges were not just looking for production quality, first-class surface finishing and postpress techniques, but for originality and user-friendliness. “Annual reports represent the very pinnacle of printing work. They are the vehicle that Germany’s best-known companies use to showcase their facts, figures and strategies at the highest level. The Druckstudio Group is one of the few players that can compete in this league. And that should come as no surprise, since the company has chosen to focus in particular on offset printing featuring maximum precision and brilliance. However, digital printing and non-print production pose no problems for the Dusseldorf-based group, either. What’s more, sustainable and ecological printing processes are also part of the package at Druckstudio.” That was how the judges summed up their views.
“The staff and management are extremely happy about this accolade. The fact we were nominated in another four categories is also great recognition of our work,” says Werner Drechsler. The Druckstudio Group was also a finalist in the “Commercial Printer of the Year”, “Catalogue Printer of the Year”, “Digital Printer of the Year” and “Most Environment-Oriented Company of the Year” categories.
Each year, the “Deutscher Drucker” publishing house selects leading companies in the German print and media industry for special achievements. And, every year, the 24 categories of the Druck&Medien Awards show just how diverse and wide-ranging the industry is.
