Dorrer & Englmeier, a new strong business partner for manroland web systems

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Press release from the issuing company

Agreement on paint shop outsourcing

Two strong partners in the metal processing industry are looking forward to their new cooperation on the premises of manroland web systems. The paint shop, which was previously run in-house, was taken over by the Dorrer & Englmeier coating centre on 1st July 2016.

The Dorrer & Englmeier family business, which is specialised in wet varnishing and powder coating, will from now on reside on the factory premises of manroland web systems GmbH. The printing press manufacturer is to benefit from the comprehensive, longstanding experience of the new partner. For this reason it was agreed to outsource the painting works completely to Dorrer & Englmeier in order to pool expertise and make use of the existing know-how. With the expansion of their business operations, Dorrer & Englmeier will additionally act as a contract coater in Augsburg. The Power & Free plant of manroland web systems, which Dorrer & Englmeier will take over, offers fully automatic powder coating, wet varnishing, phosphate conversion coating as well as cathodic dip primer coating and a sandblast cabin. All of this will now also be available for new customers of Dorrer & Englmeier. The business expansion will create additional jobs in Augsburg.

Optimisation of production processes

The partnership with Dorrer & Englmeier is another step for manroland web sys-tems GmbH towards optimising the in-house production processes, concentration on the core business and thereby securing the leading role in the web offset printing business. "We are happy to have yet again found a strong partner for our production", says Alexander Wasserman, director of manroland web systems. "We not only offer Dorrer & Englmeier a site that is conveniently situated and well connected to the infrastructure, but we also gain a partner who ensures an optimal material supply and the realisation of our painting work."

Dorrer & Englmeier and manroland web systems already signed the contract for the transference of the paint shop in May. A long-term framework procurement contract for the delivery of coated parts as well as rental contracts for the ware-house, manufacturing and administration buildings round off the collaboration. All co-workers employed by manroland web systems in the paint shop will con-tinue their work with Dorrer & Englmeier.

"The collaboration with manroland web systems means an expansion into new business areas for us. We are proud to be a modern, growing company and are very happy about our new partnership with manroland web systems", the managing directors Franz and Alexander Englmeier of the Dorrer & Englmeier coating centre explain.
