Dear customers and business partners of the Koenig & Bauer Group,

My sincere thanks go out to all of you for your countless orders and the many enquiries addressed to your contacts at Koenig & Bauer.

Parallel to the really pleasing order intake, we have been able to deliver presses and other equipment all over the world – from the half-format Rapida 75/76, via numerous presses of the Rapida 105/106 series, up to the large-format Rapida 145 – in response to your orders. For the first time, furthermore, we have supplied Iberica flat-bed die-cutters to users in Switzerland and Canada, and our Evo XD flexo press has been commissioned successfully in South Africa and the USA. A fifth RotaJET for decor printing has also joined our list of installations to date, while the first CorruCUT has now passed its all-important factory acceptance tests. This highly automated flexo press for corrugated sheets up to 2.8 metres wide adds a further important product to our packaging portfolio and will enable us to consolidate our strong position in a market segment which continues to grow across all continents. Following the world’s largest installation of a Commander CT at the Daily News in New York, we are pleased to be able to serve another customer in Florida with this high-performance press
