KBA North America Inc.’s supervisory board has decided to transfer web press sales, service and parts activities from York, Pa., to its sheetfed division, in Williston, Vt., near Burlington.
The combined sheetfed and web company will continue as a U.S. subsidiary of Koenig & Bauer AG, Wuerzburg, Germany, under the company name KBA North America Inc.
KBA’s sheetfed division offers a broad range of printing presses supported by factory-trained service personnel. The company said all web and sheetfed customers will benefit from “additional qualified service personnel throughout North America.”
A major market for KBA, North America accounts for 15%-20% of turnover and annual sales worth several hundred million dollars. KBA said the change reaffirms its management’s commitment “to provide a long-term solid solution for professional and cost-effective customer service.” Details are to be released in coming weeks.
