In cooperation with S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft, the press manufacturer will offer almost all services concerning printing presses to customers in the future.

Koenig & Bauer head of service Thomas Potzkai said: “We have worked well and successfully with S.E.M. in the past and building on this partnership was the next logical step. Our customers want the opportunity to have one contact person for their entire print shop. We can now offer this together with S.E.M.”

This alliance of both companies is geared towards longer-term commitment.

S.E.M. Servicegesellschaft managing director Achim Trenkner said: “The goal of our alliance is clear – we want to work the market proactively together, with services ranging from general upkeep, maintenance and technical press cleaning. Together we now see ourselves as a full-service provider.“ The fields of activity of both companies are clearly separated from each other and complement each other in an ideal way.

S.E.M Servicegesellschaft für Elektrik und Mechanik GmbH was founded in Ludwigshafen, Germany, in 1979. The company expanded beyond Ludwigshafen for the first time in 2006. It won jobs in Bremerhaven, Crailsheim, Minden, Darmstadt, Regensburg and many other German cities.

In the meantime, S.E.M. has developed into a nationwide company with almost 300 employees and several locations. The company offers maintenance, electrotechnical installations in the industrial and commercial sector as well as technical machine cleaning.
