The new office and showroom is located in Notting Hill, in Melbourne's eastern suburbs, an area which is already home to many print companies. The site will also house a new Print Media Academy (PMA) - a state-of-the-art demonstration and training facility.
Andy Vels Jensen, managing director of HAN, explains the rationale behind the relocation, he says, "The move made sense across all areas of the business, not least the fact that it brings us closer to our customers and was an excellent proposition which secures our cost base moving forward. The new site has a modern purpose-built office building comprising a fantastic and functional Print Media Academy (PMA) for external and internal training. The investment was fast-tracked and approved by the Heidelberg board within weeks of the opportunity arising."
HAN's general manager marketing and product management, Glenn Plummer, says the new PMA will not only showcase Heidelberg equipment, software and systems but will also be a place to meet, network and learn, he says, "We started with a clean sheet of paper when designing and setting out plans for the PMA and the result is stunning. We looked at our own experience and that of other Heidelberg branches around the world to come up a layout and facilities that are unmatched."
Plummer points out, "the 1,000 square metre PMA area includes showroom space for presses and post press equipment, a pre-press Prinect suite, café and training rooms with up-to-date audio visual services and fully integrated connection of mechanical, electrical and electronic services for equipment."
