The merger will enable Koenig & Bauer to expand its activities in the growing packaging market, which has emerged as a major expansion market for print service providers in recent years.

Koenig & Bauer will offer complete lines for the printing and processing folding boxes, utilising Rapida sheetfed presses from Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed, flatbed die cutters from Koenig & Bauer Iberica, and now folder gluers from Duran.

Ralf Sammeck, chief executive of Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed and member of the Koenig & Bauer management board, says: “Over the past few years Duran has set new standards and successfully strengthened its position among our customers in the industrial packaging sector. We are now further expanding our worldwide presence as the printing press and die cutter manufacturer with the broadest product portfolio.”
