Partnering With Customers ( Cont’d from Page 11)

between a supplier and a customer, by the very na- ture of the word, should be a collaborative and ongo- ing. We might manufacture great press and finishing equipment, but our team of experts who have a broad background in print production, manufactur- ing, engineering, marketing, finance, etc. are available to support throughout the life of the partnership. The ultimate goal in my position is that our cus- tomers view Koenig & Bauer through the same lens, no matter the segment, as a reliable and resourceful suppli- er for every product that we sell and support. It’s an ex- citing time to be part of this amazing company.
