Ralf Sammeck Expands Role at KBA to Head Sheetfed Offset Press Engineering
WÜRZBURG, GERMANY—July 2, 2013—With effect from July 1, 2013, Ralf Sammeck (50), executive vice president of sales, marketing and service at Koenig & Bauer’s (KBA) sheetfed facility in Radebeul, Germany, since 2007, has also taken over responsibility for sheetfed offset press engineering from president Claus Bolza-Schünemann.
KBA’s CEO wishes to focus more on strategic tasks and therefore continues to remain in charge of coordinating technology at the company’s plants. Executive vice president Michael Kummert remains head of sheetfed and web press production and assembly.
This realignment of responsibilities will enable the world’s second-largest press manufacturer to adjust its sheetfed offset product strategy to the market and react faster to market changes. Executive vice president Christoph Müller (52) heads the web press product-house set up a year ago with the aim of achieving the same goals and division responsibility at KBA’s main site in Würzburg.
