Alfabet printing company is ready for expansion….
The Alfabet (B) printing company from Gent/Belgium has expanded its activities in the production of RING WIRE binding.
The demand for production of RING-WIRE-bound products has been growing at Alfabet Drukkerij in Gent for several years. For this reason, Dirk Matthys, Managing Director of Alfabet Drukkerij, needed to automate his production methods.
Having previously purchased a MOBI 500 (an automatic machine for the binding of brochures and calendars bound with ring wire combs) from Chr. Renz GmbH, Alfabet Drukkerij now needed to take the next step. This was the purchase of a punching machine "AUTOPUNCH 360 DIGITAL" that Mr. Matthys also purchased directly from the manufacturer.
Dirk Matthys commented: “We started processing ring wire bound documents on smaller RENZ machines, and when the time came for further automation, we got directly in touch with the manufacturer. The advice and support during the purchasing process has been very professional. Besides this, we are also very content with the service from RENZ for their punching and binding machines.”
“We now have sufficient capacity to process our volumes easily in the shortest possible time. We even have room to punch and bind additional products for colleagues, partners and third parties! Automation allows us to process different formats within minutes and we are able to quickly process and deliver both small and large runs,” says the Managing Director.

RENZ Germany meets RENZ UK
German Student gets positive experience during his practical training abroad
The dual university course business engineering includes a theory-semester at the university in Heidenheim (DHBW) as well as a practical semester at a cooperating company. During the 2nd year of training the student has to get training at a subsidiary in a foreign country.
Our DHBW Student Alexander Berger was offered the opportunity to get his practical experience at RENZ (UK) Limited, our daughter company in Hatfield, England. “I liked actively participating in the areas of order processing, invoicing, route planning for deliveries and especially managing the online orders and offers on Amazon”, comments Alex.Berger on his experience in England. “Practical experience during studies helps a lot to get an insight into the whole company and a feeling for on-site working life.” He reports excitedly: “The highlight during my apprenticeship was a day out, taking part in the busy dynamic business life in London City with visits to several different dealers.”
Alex booked his accommodation in the Internet on his own initiative. A very friendly family welcomed him warmly and supported him with a lot of tips for sightseeing, shopping and sport activities. Hatfield is centrally located and can be reached by train from London Kings Cross station in 25min and in 55min from Cambridge.
With all the new experiences and positive impressions he gathered in England, our student came back and is now looking forward to his semester abroad, which he will spend in August in Seoul/South Korea. We are looking forward to his field report from Asia.
RENZ auf der Messe ‚Print China‘ in Guangdong
Renz stellt erstmalig mit dem neuen Vertriebspartner ZTEC auf der Print China in Guangdong aus
Im April 2019 nutzte die Chr. Renz GmbH die Gelegenheit sich mit ihrem Vertriebspartner ZTEC auf der Print China in Guangdong zu präsentieren. Neben vielen großen Anbietern wie Konica, HP und Ricoh lenkte ZTEC, mit einem 200 m² großen Messestand und 2 Besprechungsräumen im oberen Stockwerk, die Aufmerksamkeit auf sich.
Hauptsitz der Firma ZTEC ist Peking. Vor kurzem wurde eine Niederlassung in Shenzen gegründet. Das breite Angebot dieses Händlers umfasst Maschinen für die Hardcover-Produktion von Büchern, den Digitaldruck etc. Um hier beste Qualität zu garantieren, fokussiert sich ZTEC auf das Angebot aus dem europäischen Markt.
Im Papierverarbeitungsbereich sucht sich ZTEC nun Unterstützung durch die Chr. Renz GmbH, die anerkannter Weltmarktführer für Drahtkammbindungen ist. Im großen Portfolio bietet Renz unter anderem Stanz- und Bindesysteme für kleinere, mittlere und große papierverarbeitende Unternehmen an. Drei dieser PROFESSIONAL LINE Maschinen (Punch 500 ES, die AP 300 Compact sowie die MOBI 500) wurden den Besuchern vor Ort demonstriert.
Um die Kunden auf der ‚Print China‘ optimal zu betreuen war ZTEC mit 15 eigenen Mitarbeitern auf dem Messestand, unterstützt von der persönlichen Betreuung von Herrn Gerber, Exportleiter der Firma Renz. Herr Gerber bestätigt: „Wir konnten die ersten Abschlüsse tätigen und ich sehe für Renz viel Potential auf dem chinesischen Markt, vor allem für die wachsende Automatisierung im Digitaldruckbereich.“ Neben der großen Anzahl an chinesischen Besuchern, waren auch Interessenten aus Korea, Indien, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand und Europa vertreten.

Renz welcomes important economic delegation from The Peoples Republic of China
On their 14-day journey through Europe eighteen leading representatives of the Chinese digital printing industry visited Chr. Renz GmbH at their headquarters in Heubach, Southern Germany.
Renz is the global leader in ring wire production used for binding calendars, books and brochures etc.. The company, which has a long tradition and celebrates its 111th birthday this year, builds punching and binding machines for ring wire comb, plastic comb and spiral binding from small office machines to fully automated high speed lines. Renz also produces and supplies a full range of binding consumables and accessories for offices, schools, copy shops and the entire printing industry.
The delegation came to see the Renz Stand at “Hunkeler Innovationdays” trade fair in Luzern, as well as visiting in Heubach. The main interest from this delegation was in the latest possibilities for automatization. Amongst other developments Renz presented their new concept for Photo Calendar Binding and Photo Book Production. On a visit to a large printer near Heubach the Chinese delegation had a chance to see a large professional printer with highly qualified operators producing both digital and offset work.
A skilled worker shortage and high demands on quality also accelerate in Asia, as in Europe, the trend towards high automatization in printing industry processes.
Renz focus their sales activities on the fast-growing Chinese market and will be exhibiting on a 200 m² Stand at the China Print fair in April in Dongguan.

Our dealer Fellowes-Beswick in Johannesburg, South Africa organized a 4 days Open House end of August 2018. This event took place in their own company and many customers and re-seller followed the invitation to this quite exciting event. Fellowes-Beswick has been actively approaching the Print Finishing Market during the last few months and has successively taken over the sales of Renz semi-automatic machines - all these efforts led to the creation of an own show-room just for Renz products.
The ideas and the design of the showroom were inspired by the Renz Dealer Seminar that took place in April this year in Heubach, Germany with more than 40 international dealers and representatives of the Renz company.
The cooperation between Fellowes-Beswick and Renz has been very successful, target-orientated and extremely professional. All this resulting in steadily increasing turnovers.
