Integrated Print Factory
The transformation concept for modern printing plants.
Over the next five years, companies in the printing industry will be making great efforts to further streamline their manufacturing processes and make them more efficient. Against the backdrop of skyrocketing paper and energy prices, this is a groundbreaking step to ensure that print products remain competitive in the future.
Cost savings of up to 25 percent
The "Integrated Print Factory" allows a holistic strategic approach. It is based on the assumption that the digital transformation can only unfold its full potential if adjustments have been made in advance to the corporate and sales strategy. According to estimates by the experts at Apenberg & Partner, cost savings of up to 25 per cent can be achieved in manufacturing processes if the corporate strategy and the introduction or optimisation of an ERP system are coordinated.
Apenberg & Partner has developed a pragmatic consulting approach to support clients on their way to an "Integrated Print Factory". Take advantage of the industry expertise and experience of the experts at Apenberg & Partner. Mr Michael Apenberg or Dr Johannes Warther are at your disposal for an initial, confidential exchange of ideas.
Project example: The Revolution in Food Packaging - Packaging rethought.
Under the working title "ROSA", a new packaging printing plant was created on a greenfield site in Germany. Apenberg & Partner advised the investors from the idea to the realisation.

Our many years of experience as a leading strategy consultancy in the printing industry predestines Apenberg & Partner to accompany the desired transformation from the very first planning date to the completed implementation. We focus on the strategic suitability of the chosen transformation path, thus ensuring that the transformation does not remain an end in itself but serves the overriding corporate goals. Accordingly, in IPF consulting projects we act as project managers and at the same time as sparring partners for those responsible on the customer and service side.
Apenberg & Partner recommends first carrying out a quick check. Such a quick check serves to efficiently determine the position of your company in relation to the concept as a benchmark. The results of the quick check form the basis for further project planning individually tailored to your company as well as a concrete determination of the costs to be expected for the complete implementation.
Project durations of less than 12 months help to achieve initial successes as quickly as possible and to keep the costs of the transformation under control.
The exact costs of a complete implementation are extremely dependent on the company concerned, its requirements and status quo as well as the individual scope of the transformation. A general cost estimate can therefore not be made seriously. The Quick Check recommended by Apenberg & Partner (see also "How does Apenberg & Partner structure such a complex consulting project?") leads, among other things, to a cost estimate tailored to your company.
