Frankische Landeszeitung Orders a KBA Commander CL
Wednesday, August 22, 2012
Press release from the issuing company
German newspaper publisher Fränkische Landeszeitung in Ansbach has reaffirmed its longstanding and successful association with Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA) by placing an order for a Commander CL. The extensively automated 48-page press line with three reelstands, three four-high towers and two folders is scheduled for installation in autumn 2013, replacing a 1990s-vintage KBA Journal. Since unveiling this new press type at IFRA Expo 2011 in Vienna, Würzburg-based KBA, the market leader, has sold five Commander CL press lines, with customers citing flexible automation and the ability to deliver top-quality newspapers and semi-commercials as the deciding factors.
