Review of 2019

2019 is coming to an end and all of us here at Muller Martini are already keeping a close eye on drupa 2020, which will again be a highlight for our industry and our company. But before we start the new year with a preview of Muller Martini's trade fair appearance, let's first take a look back at the past year. What were the highlights in our blog and what topics were our readers particularly interested in?
