The company’s outstanding print work is now produced by the Jordi family’s fifth generation: Gabriel Jordi and his three brothers inherited their passion for ink craftsfrom their great-great-grandparents Friedrich and Maria Jordi – along with a feeling for sensible progress to secure the future of the company, which has now been in business for 125 years and employs almost 100 people. Gabriel Jordi outlines Jordi AG’s portfolio as follows: “We have four departments: high-quality marketing print products with all kinds of finishes, magazines, mailings, and our ‘Printzessin.ch’ online print shop, which complements and supports us with a separate brand.” The customers? Gabriel Jordi explains: “We work for agencies, cultural organizations, associations, publishers, small and medium-sized enterprises, and non-profit organizations in about equal measure. In brief: for everyone who believes in print – and rediscovers its impact with us.”

Relying on a Hunkeler DocuTrim system to significantly increase efficiency in the finishing process for mailings was an obvious choice
for Jordi AG. DocuTrim plays to its strengths in all the mailing production steps downstream of the actual printing process.

The universal digital sheet processing system handles large volumes of sheet formats up to 520 x 520 mm – both online and offline. In doing so, the DocuTrim combines all required steps such as edge trimming, cross and longitudinal cutting, perforation, and stacking. In addition to gentle sheet transport using vacuum technology, the proven Hunkeler cutting and perforation tools of the Dynamic Multi Processor (DMP) are another convincing feature. The modular system enables individual conversion and expansion of the finishing process at any time. With its short setup times and correspondingly high availability, the DocuTrim system is capable of processing up to 11,500 sheets per hour with paper weights between 60 and 250 g/m2. But apart from the technical data, there were other aspects that convinced Jordi AG of the Hunkeler solution: “Hunkeler’s quality and experience in the finishing sector is attractive to us. As a Swiss manufacturer, we also appreciate the proximity.”
