Madman Printing celebrates ten years in the industry with the installation of a new Heidelberg Polar 66 guillotine to manage the company’s digital work.

The new Heidelberg Polar 66 guillotine is the perfect anniversary present, according to Dustin Pullin, managing director. “We’ve just turned ten and that’s good news for everyone especially in a market where all we hear is doom and gloom. We’re producing great work, have a sound base of clients and are constantly looking at ways to work more efficiently.

“We had an older model guillotine that was a bit of a toy in all honesty and didn’t have the capacity to manage an increased volume of digital jobs. So we decided to get another Polar – we put in our first last year, the big brother to this one. The boys love it. It’s fast and highly accurate.”  

He continues. “We signed up for the new Polar and within a week it was installed and operational. That pretty much sums up the relationship we have with Heidelberg – they’ve been with us from the start. They respond quickly, and support us whether we are buying new or secondhand, a big ticket item or a small cutter”.

In the spirit of the company’s name, Pullin was pictured last year in a straight jacket to promote the purchase of the company’s Heidelberg CD 74 six-colour press with coater and InPress Control.

An increase in work prompted Madman Printing to move from Collingwood to Heidelberg West.  Shane Hanlon, head of product management and remarketed equipment at Heidelberg congratulated the Madman crew on the milestone.

“This is a lean, efficiently run business with its eye on service and a can do attitude. They also know how to have fun and they’ve created a great culture within the business that’s reflected in their success,” said Hanlon.

“We are always prepared to pull one out of the box so we can deliver on any request. Whatever it takes to make a job happen we’ll do it. I genuinely like helping people out, that’s where I get my job satisfaction,” concludes Pullin.
