In 2004, Istragrafika d.d. Rovinj bussiness operations were characterized by several important events. After the installation of the Roland 900 printing line in March, which led to quantitative production and sales growth (12%), Istragrafika adopted an enviroment protection control system according to the HRN EN ISO 14001 in May. On June 1st, the company started the implemenation of the SAP R/3 information system, thereby acknowledging the importance of not only maintaining but improving its market position. Taking into consideration the customers� demand for high-quality and enviroment-firiendly products and the harsh competition in the graphic industry, Istragrafika adopted the environment protection system to assure continuous supervision and prevention of pollution by using environment friendly materials and substances that do not have a direct or indirect environmental impact. It is being done by reducing utility usage and production of waste, process supervision, appropriate equipment maintenance, and compliance with legislative provisions and norms (ISO).
