DUSSELDORF, GERMANY— 2008-06-09—As part of a strategic partnership, technotrans AG and manroland AG have agreed that technotrans AG ink roller temperature control units will in future be fitted as the original equipment on manroland sheet-fed presses. technotransAG, a leading systems supplier of peripheral equipment for offset printing, has for many years been one of the leading players in the market in this product category.
“We have taken this decision in the interests of using resources optimally along the entire value added chain and in line with our product strategy for peripheral equipment,” explained Rudolf Hartmann, Area Head of Purchasing at manroland in Offenbach. “We are consciously looking for a long-term strategic partnership with one of our key systems suppliers.”
“As a systems supplier, technotrans concentrates on special expertise that appropriately complements the core skills of printing press manufacturers,” added Henry Brickenkamp, member of the Board of Management of technotrans AG. “We are in a position to provide superlative technology in that area and are therefore able to make developments such as improved energy efficiency available to a wide market.” The technotrans Board of Management is consequently exceptionally pleased at manroland’s decision, which it believes comes as further endorsement of the company’s strategic direction.
