Volume-Up At WKS: Machinery Will Be Supplemented With Another LITHOMAN 160-Page Press

Monday, April 18, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

The second LITHOMAN 80-page twin-web press will continue the success story of manroland web systems and Kraft-Schloetels in Wassenberg, Germany, a sub company of the WKS Druckholding

Kraft-Schloetels in Wassenberg, a sub company of the WKS Druckholding, now orders the second high volume press from manroland web systems.

With the new investment, WKS consequently pursues the course of using the latest technology and therefore again opts for the printing press technology of manroland web systems. “The cooperation with manroland web systems has totally paid off for us. The LITHOMAN presslines that are already producing are absolutely outstanding regarding the stability of the print run, quality and, last but not least, productivity. After a very good cooperation and an excellent handling of the complex first 160-page press project, we were certain about the fact that we would again opt for the proven team from Augsburg“, Dr. Dittmann, Managing Director of the WKS Group, states. “We are also in the best hands with our long-term partner with regards on service and maintenance.“

Size Matters – The LITHOMAN with 160-Pages
The twin-web 80-page LITHOMAN press with 4.5 meter maximum web width in total again sets new standards for the high volume commercial printing. There are altogether eight manroland-rotations from 32 to 160 pages in production at the two production sites in Wassenberg and Essen.

LITHOMAN – Champion at Flexibility, Format Variability and Makeready Times
“We are especially happy about the order for another press of this type just two years after the production start of the first 160-page press. The again given trust of WKS for manroland web systems confirms and motivates our work“, Frank Kreisel, Regional Sales Manager at manroland web systems, proudly explains. “Projects with dimensions like these can only be handled that fast and successfully because of a long-term, very cooperative and reliable partnership.”

Extraordinary Success and Press Concept
WKS is one of the leading web offset printers in Germany. Investments are always made with regards on customer demands. The fusion of the Westend Druckereibetriebe GmbH in Essen and the Kraft-Schloetels GmbH in Wassenberg in 2009 resulted in WKS, one of the leading web offset printing companies in Middle Europe.
