Kennesaw, GA-based Heidelberg USA Inc. and Norcross, GA-based Unisource Worldwide Inc. announce a partnership that combines Heidelberg’s print media products, service and expertise with the paper and logistics knowledge of the Unisource organization. Unisource will offer Heidelberg’s full line of Saphira consumables.

The partnership is focused on creating “game-changing business practices” that will enable printers to run their businesses more efficiently. Among the benefits the alliance is expected to offer the industry are:

  • Enhanced service, products and technical expertise. Access to the Unisource nationwide distribution network and Heidelberg’s full product and consumable offering provides printers an opportunity to achieve pressroom and operational efficiencies.
  • The opportunity for printers to reduce costs and achieve economies of scale by managing all equipment, consumables and paper purchases in the form of exclusive bundled products and services.

The program will roll out in phases, beginning with printers in the Southeast this fall and expanding nationwide within the next year.
