For the past 204 years, the Koenig & Bauer Group has been synonymous with innovation and technical progress in the global printing industry and is thus also the world’s oldest printing press manufacturer. Koenig & Bauer’s high-tech presses and systems, which are consistently tailored to meet customer requirements, and its comprehensive range of services enable people all over the world to come into contact with printed, processed and finished products. In addition to various types of packaging for the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, this also includes banknotes, decorations and laminates as well as magazines and newspapers. The products are used in packaging, banknote, security, industrial, commercial and publication printing.
Koenig & Bauer addresses these (end) markets through the development, assembly and worldwide distribution of sheetfed and web offset, flexo and digital printing presses, flatbed and rotary die cutters, folding-box gluers and special presses for security, metal decorating, glass/hollow containers and coding. The presses use almost all common printing technologies that apply ink efficiently and precisely to a wide variety of substrates such as paper, cardboard, foil, glass, hollow containers and sheet metal. This makes Koenig & Bauer’s range one of the broadest in the industry. The comprehensive expertise derived from addressing many sub-markets provides a good basis for innovation and for new applications in the growing packaging printing markets. The Koenig & Bauer Group is the global market and technology leader in the growing market for packaging printing and banknote printing. Its services encompass a wide range of customer-oriented offerings from fully automated print workflows to networked printing and constitute an important component of our business model alongside new press business.
