We work side-by-side with customers on various development projects to help them reach ambitious sustainability goals. With customers from a broad range of industries, and in many different countries, we have gained unique insight and experience that can be applied across the Skanem Group as a whole,” Eirik Bergh, Managing Director of Skanem Stavanger, begins.

“The partnership with Nilpeter is no different – in addition to the high print quality, intuitive user interface, and value-added possibilities, the new FA-22 is built with a clear focus on limiting waste, lowering power consumption, and reducing emissions. This press fits perfectly with what we’re trying to achieve here at Skanem,” Eirik Bergh concludes.
