As Arnold already mentioned in the previous editorial, we have a major project in Denmark concerning used printing, lacquering and assembly lines. As customary, we have called in the help of our Polish sister team to get the work done. Whereas Cazander takes care of coordinating the whole process of buying, selling, accommodating and arranging transport, our colleagues from Poland do the actual dismantling, packaging and loading. We have had the pleasure to work with this partner company already many years and the team members do not cease to amaze us in a positive way.

 

“International teamwork is the most vital and fascinating aspect of our company”

 

Lately, in Hedensted, we had to remove a complete Mailänder 460 coating line with a 27 meter long oven, including an incinerator and two burners. For the loading, we needed ten 40 ft high cube containers, which were neatly filled with 106 parts, ranging from a box with manuals to an afterburner and from air ducts to a coater. The resourcefulness of the team is a pleasure to witness. As we usually are guests in a plant in full operation, we have to make sure that we do not block or obstruct the regular factory traffic. Our mechanics, electricians and handy men cooperate to dismantle the line and divide the parts into neatly manageable packages without much disturbance in the grounds. Forklifts and pallet trucks are used to move the parts to a storage or directly to the nearby yard to load them into containers.


Logistics

 

Our team is used to manoeuvre on the ‘square centimeter’, without hindering the factory people. The sight of two forklift drivers perpendicular to each other meticulously moving a 6 meter long burner into a container, while the truck driver is instructed to ‘slowly, slowly!’ move the container backwards, is a real pleasure. International teamwork is the most vital and fascinating aspect of our company. Sometimes the whole team is deployed to ensure the safe transfer of parts! Machines that are hardly smaller than the container opening, are loaded with absolute care and professionalism. And every bit of space is used as efficiently as possible in order to save on cost for extra containers. The self-reliance of our Polish colleagues is very high. They have a solution for every problem that occurs during  their work. Moreover, they are helpful, polite, humorous and welcoming. I look forward to our next joint operation!

Cazander goes east

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

October 2018

 

Without losing sight of the fixed markets, we are also on the rise in the east! 

Our expertise, market knowledge and the ability to find the perfect used canmaking equipment for a multitude of customers, were, until recently, mainly applied in the well-known areas: Europe, America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. In the past, deals with customers in countries such as the Ukraine and the Baltic States were almost an exception. But lately, in just a couple of weeks' time, we delivered several two-colour printing presses to customers in Serbia, Crimea and Russia. Although this concerns the older types, the equipment had already been upgraded with, for instance, a TGC dampening system, Baldwin automatic blanket washing units, Microcolor Mercury ink remote control and a printing plate quick clamp system.

Moreover, with a fully equipped and well-staffed workshop cum warehouse located strategically in Eastern Poland, we are able to overhaul and move machines quickly to Eastern Europe, the Russian Federation and other countries in the same region. The current Cazander World Map shows the 51 complete printing lines we sold all over the world in the past 22 years, 4 of which were delivered to the eastern part of Europe. However, our present and upcoming customers in the east may very well balance the sales quickly!

On a different note, we have proven to be able to take on intensive dismantling and removal projects, one being the clearing of a complete previous Crown factory in Finland early 2018, where in three months’ time it took us 10.000 labour hours and 50 trailers to remove six printing / varnishing lines. 

Now, right at this moment, we are working on a major project at Glud & Marstrand, Denmark, to remove 25 lines from various factories. In addition to printing and lacquering lines, this also concerns assembly lines. All these lines are being or have already been replaced by new production lines. The project will run until the first quarter of 2019 and will involve even more working hours and transports. We are pleased to execute such projects and are keen on buying machines from Northern European countries because of their good state of maintenance and the use of original parts.

 

We live up to our slogan: you can trust we can deliver.
