Bookbindery van Mierlo is a small family business focused on the production of high-quality books
Bookbindery van Mierlo located in Nijmegen (Netherlands), is a small family business. However, the products that this bookbindery produces on behalf of printers are by no means small. Printing companies from the Benelux area and Germany entrust the binding of the widest range of book formats to the highly experienced employees of Van Mierlo.
Printing in this niche segment is becoming increasingly lucrative, and the print runs are not limited to a few hundred copies. It was, therefore, the right time to invest in industrial bookbinding solutions to increase production efficiency. A few years ago, purchasing a machine for producing large format books was already a significant step forward for van Mierlo but still the process was done manually on a semi-automatic machine.
The pressure on delivery times, the longer print runs, and, finally, the increasing personnel workload were the reasons to invest in the asterBIG book sewing machine to automate this process fully.
