Baghdad based printing graphic arts company Dar Al-Nahrain has invested in two Alegro perfect binders, two Ventura MC thread sewing machines and a Presto II saddle stitchers from Muller Martini.
“We decided on Muller solutions for three main reasons,” says managing director Duraid Dh. Da’as. “First, they are ideal for our job structure. Second, they ensure high productivity thanks to their speed and reliability. Third, we have an excellent partnership with Muller Martini’s regional agency, Middle East Graphics.”
Established in 1979 by the Iraqi government, Dar Al-Nahrain employs 400 people, primarily catering to the Ministry of Education and governmnet institutions. Such institutions turn to the graphic arts company in Baghdad because under Iraqi law all print products commissioned by government bodies must be printed in Iraq.
During a live demo at the Muller Martini Print Finishing Center in Zofingen in Switzerland, a delegation from Dar Al-Nahrain recently saw what possibilities Muller Martini’s Finishing 4.0 solutions offer for digital printing. “Digital printing is getting popular in our country,” says Duraid Dh. Da’as. “I expect it to continue to gain in importance. In any case, we’re extremely well prepared, we have set up a designated digital department at our company and we are planning to invest more in this field.”
