- Expanding service business
- Product portfolio extended
- Long-term partnership
Koenig & Bauer is expanding its product portfolio in response to service business expansions and strong customer demand. In cooperation with S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft, the press manufacturer will offer almost all services concerning 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. This alliance of both companies is geared towards longer-term commitment. Achim Trenkner, managing director of S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft: “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. Together we now see ourselves as a full-service provider.“ The fields of activity of both companies are clearly separated from each other and complement each other in an ideal way.
