“Our loyal and highly skilled employees are the most important value of the Company, that is why we have taken and will take all necessary precautions to protect their health.
ANY was able to remain profitable by retaining jobs, there have been no dismissals and no such measures are planned.
In the new situation, due to the coronavirus, of course, the Company’s net sales decreased, as those who could do that, stayed at home, did not renew their documents, did not request a new passport and maybe did not need a new credit card either. The situation is similar in the international markets, so it is a special pleasure for us that export sales have remained high. This was only possible by winning new markets, new customers and new tenders. In the same period, we were looking forward to the future with continuous developments at the new Budapest site, and in Gyomaendrőd with the largest investment in the history of Gyomai Kner Book Printing Company. This means the renewal of the entire binding and printing machine fleet, with state-of-the-art machines manufactured in 2020. These machines are already in operation too. Publishers and readers will also be able to feel the change in the quality and the quantity of books, that will be exhibited on the Festive Book Week.
Overall, the printing industry suffers a serious loss in the coronavirus situation. ANY Security Printing Company PLC endured well the most critical period: the data of the month of July and the volume of orders show that we are beyond the difficulties. We hope, with everyone else, that the general health situation as well as the economic environment will improve in the future”. – added Gábor ZSÁMBOKI, the CEO of ANY Security Printing Company when the report was published.
