Germany-based Koenig & Bauer is expanding its product portfolio in response to service business growth and strong customer demand, the company says.
In cooperation with S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft, the press manufacturer will offer almost all services involving printing presses to customers in the future. “We have worked well and successfully with S.E.M. in the past and building on this partnership was the next logical step. Our customers want the opportunity to have one contact person for their entire print shop. We can now offer this together with S.E.M.,” says Thomas Potzkai, head of service at Koenig & Bauer.
The alliance is geared towards longer-term commitment. “The goal of our alliance is clear — we want to work the market proactively together, with services ranging from general upkeep, maintenance and technical press cleaning,” said Achim Trenkner, managing director of S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft. “Together we now see ourselves as a full-service provider.”
The fields of activity of both companies are separate and complement each other in an ideal way, according to Koenig & Bauer.
Ludwigshafen, Germany-based S.E.M. offers maintenance, electrotechnical installations in the industrial and commercial sector and technical machine cleaning.
