Hunkeler and Müller in Kranzberg, Germany have agreed that Hunkeler should take over the complete sales and service business for the DocuTrim sheet finishing system. The two companies are currently finalizing the contract documents.
Hunkeler will initially take charge of business across Europe and then gradually extend its activities to other markets. DocuTrim was developed by Müller and has already been launched on the market. “This agreement represents a consistent step in the expansion of Müller’s global activities,” said proprietor Robert Fortmeier and director Thorsten Piel as they expressed their delight with the deal: Müller will benefit from Hunkeler’s worldwide sales and service network, whereas Hunkeler will be gaining a first-class product in the DocuTrim. As Michel Hunkeler, chief executive officer of Hunkeler AG, stated, “This sales partnership lays the foundation enabling us to provide new, innovative solutions to the highest standard in the digital sheet finishing segment. The DocuTrim perfectly complements our Generation 8, POPP6 and 7 continuous-feed product lines.”
Ever since its establishment in 1922, Hunkeler has been active on behalf of the printing industry. The company can draw on many years of know-how in the field of engineering and boasts a highly competent sales and service network. Müller, a traditional family company founded in 1965, produces flexible paper management solutions for the automated processing of digital print products. The two companies’ vast experience and wide range of applications form the perfect basis for such this collaboration. Furthermore, customers now have the combined benefit of an excellent product plus technicians and support staff with global experience.
