Heidelberg USA, Inc. and Unisource Worldwide, Inc. have announced a partnership that combines Heidelberg’s print media products, service and expertise with the paper and logistics knowledge of the Unisource organization for the benefit of printers in the U.S.

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

"When two best-in-class companies align to offer their customers the benefit of their combined expertise, printers win hands down," says Jim Dunn, president of Heidelberg USA. "Supplier accountability is key. Printers not only will gain access to the best products, consumables and paper, but also will enjoy the security and peace of mind that come from knowing where to turn for prompt support."

Al Dragone, chief executive officer of Unisource Worldwide comments: "This alliance between two market-leading brands, Unisource and Heidelberg, offers printers the best of both worlds, including convenient access to top-quality products, combined with world-class logistics, distribution and service. Both companies are focused on providing greater efficiencies and tangible value to the printer community."

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