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. (Reporting by Maria Sheahan; Editing by Mike Nesbit)
