Our range of services


  • IE OPERATOR MODEL
  • Retrofit
  • SUSTAINABILITY

We provide you with a consistent cost-reduction approach: using the IE operator model your new printing press costs you zero euros. You pay only a monthly operating lump sum that’s fixed in advance and covers all costs. No hidden risks, but absolute planning security.

We look at your situation independently, with extensive experience, and develop robust future scenarios. We will draw up a proposal for you detailing how reliable and cost-optimised printing and shipping can be achieved when your machines have seen better days.

We get involved in areas with the greatest potential for more sustainability in industrial buildings: in the production processes and the design of all upstream and downstream processes. Measures range from energy recovery from process heat, through the use of renewables, to the efficient utilisation of plots.

Projects


Project examples: clever industrial buildings solutions from IE

We’ll give you more than just an architectural shell for your production facility: we enhance the efficiency of your processes – with industrial buildings perfectly matched to your production processes. How we do it? With a lot of brainwork. We are not satisfied with mere run-of-the-mill solutions. Clear competitive advantages await our clients at the end of the process. Here are a few project examples:


  • Logistik
  • Hygiene
  • Nachhaltigkeit

The new DHO printing and logistics centre is one of the most modern newspaper printers in Germany. The objective of merging two printing sites with the aid of the new production technology was achieved by the deadline. IE Graphic Engineering planned and executed this complex project with an overall investment volume of around €22 million.
The new printing and logistics centre is an amalgamation of the publishing houses SDZ Druck & Medien in Aalen and Südwest-Presse in Ulm. Six daily newspapers, a range of weeklies and commercial printing work are all produced here. The mail for the two publishers is also sorted and sent out on the vehicle rounds.
IE Graphic Engineering supports owners in selecting the plot, in construction and operational planning, as well as in everything from construction realisation and commissioning to commencement of production. Today, a new functional, cost-optimised printing centre including mail distribution centre, producing 90,000 daily newspapers in the highest quality, stands tall in Crailsheim.

Construction of then Mittelbayerisches Druckzentrum printing and logistics centre in Regensburg was the most important event in the history of publishing houses. For IE Graphic Engineering, the department in charge of the new build, it was an opportunity to implement an extensive solution under enormous time pressure using tried-and-tested IE methodology. Specifically, the new build was designed in a way such that it met the varied requirements of the company, which has a history spanning more than 60 years: this comprised a wide range of measures and duties, from plot selection through to deciding on the most suitable printing and shipping room technologies and selecting the best-suited construction method and building services, to planning operations and the provision of machine services.

Special project feature: ecologically innovative production site
Eco-friendly and resource-efficient technologies, allowing dynamic, intelligent building energy management were used in building services.

Publishers Mittelrhein-Verlag invested in the most state-of-the-art printing technology for the local editions of Rhein-Zeitung, which have up to 48 pages, as well as in six books. In addition, a media and visitor centre, in which Mittelrhein-Verlag will host multimedia tours and events for its readers and customers, was also integrated into the new printing house. IE Graphic Engineering planned and executed this complex project with an overall investment volume of around €42 million as the general management contractor.

From feasibility studies and on-site investigations to compiling an optimised concept for site operations: IE Graphic Engineering developed a sustainable, process-optimised printing centre in terms of both materials and personnel flows, as well as for machine installation and services, right up to the selection of the rotary machines.

Today, a new functional, cost-optimised printing house, producing 200,000 daily newspapers in the highest quality for 640,000 readers, stands tall in the A61/GVZ industrial park.

Planning partners

 

Only the best for our clients: long-term partners, complete transparency

We rely on the expertise of long-term partners for specialist tasks not forming part of our core services. Processes involving these companies have been honed to perfection as a result of our collaboration on numerous projects. In this way we ensure that our clients enjoy the same high level of quality, regardless of whether IE employees or those of third-party companies are involved.

However, transparency is still important to us. Before the project begins we inform our client about which services we are buying more of and from whom. In the printing and packaging industries in particular, we work with the following companies:
