KAHLE, a family-owned reprographer serving architects, construction companies, local councils and utility companies, launched in Nuremberg in 1974. Since then, the market for technical colour drawings and other printing solutions has grown exponentially; and the business has followed suit. Market conditions rarely stagnate and KAHLE recently needed to adapt its business to meet growth in international demand, amid fierce domestic price competition on colour CAD drawings.
