- Cooperation on equal terms
- Growth market for service Business
- Successful cooperation
Successful cooperation between S.E.M. and Koenig & Bauer. Assessments of the first year of joint activities by the two companies are very positive. “The objective of our partnership was clearly defined: We planned to develop the market proactively. From repairs via maintenance to technical cleaning services. And looking back, we can now report that we have indeed achieved our goal!” says Achim Trenkner, managing director of S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft. Comprehensive roller servicing was performed at Westfalen-Druck GmbH, for example, the ink ducts have been overhauled at Medienhaus C. Beckers, and electrical safety checks to ensure compliance with DGUV Regulation 3 are scheduled at the newspaper Straubinger Tagblatt for the coming year. These mandatory checks have now been integrated into the existing Koenig & Bauer service concept. Thomas Potzkai, head of service at Koenig & Bauer: “The feedback from customers has been exclusively positive. They appreciate having a single contact person, who can coordinate all necessary measures quickly and professionally. This long-term cooperation is a win-win situation for S.E.M and Koenig & Bauer – and above all also for the customers.”
Cooperation between Koenig & Bauer and S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft
In response to expanding service business and strong customer demand, Koenig & Bauer decided to expand its product portfolio in 2018. In cooperation with S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft, it can now offer practically all services relating to printing presses. The responsibilities of the two companies are clearly separated, but at the same time fully complementary.
