FRANKFURT Jan 7 Heidelberger Druckmaschinen
(HDDG.DE) is seeking a partner for its digital printing
business, German daily business newspaper Handelsblatt reported
on Thursday, citing company sources.
"Digital printing is becoming interesting again as a rather
stable business. Heidelberg is looking for a partner and has
looked at, among others, Nexpress," the newspaper cited an
unnamed source as saying.
The company is also in talks with companies other than
Nexpress, a former Heidelberger unit that is now owned by
Eastman Kodak EK.N, the paper said. Heidelberg is considering
both a joint venture and a stake purchase in a digital printing
company, it said.
Heidelberg was not immediately available for comment.
