Fuchs Werbetechnik was founded in 1929 as Fuchs Malerbetrieb in Rötenberg, Germany. By now, the fourth generation is running the company. Fuchs Werbetechnik offers a wide range of printing services. From advertising technology, digital printing and screen printing to finishing, textile printing, advertising material, and glass printing. The purchase of the first plotter for individual façade lettering in 1995 marked the start of what Fuchs Werbetechnik is today: a 360° full-service communication company.
Today, Fuchs Werbetechnik, based in Freudenstadt, is a medium-sized printing business with regional, national, and international clients. In 2015, Fuchs Werbetechnik acquired both O&H Druckvisionen and Ortlepp & Hudarin. This acquisition meant a significant expansion of both the internal competencies and the product range of the company. Its 85 employees process no less than 8200 m2of production area per year. Its client portfolio includes big names such as Hugo Boss, Vitra, Swarovski, Porsche, Bosch, Siemens, genuine premium brands that are only satisfied with perfection.
Choosing the right MIS system is no picnic
Fuchs had been looking for the right software for quite a while but couldn't find a solution that would meet their requirements. At the same time, they also didn't want to take any chances with their decision because after all, an MIS system is the backbone of the company which you don't just replace overnight. Nevertheless, they nearly went for a compromise solution from Gunther Software (Advanter). They very much needed proper structure and automation because they still had too many manual processes slowing down their production.
MultiPress convinced Fuchs during the first meeting
Fortunately, MultiPress joined the race just in time. According to Fuchs, the most significant advantage of MultiPress is that the entire software is based on standard modules so that custom development is no longer necessary. During a meeting with a live demo, the added value of MultiPress compared to other MIS systems became crystal clear to Fuchs. What made Fuchs choose MultiPress? The system’s modular construction was a significant advantage, but the simple integration of external systems such as Caldera RIP (JDF option) and One Vision was a particularly important factor in Fuchs Werbetechnik’s choice.
