A good year for KBA-MetalPrint
A review of the business year 2014 found that KBA-MetalPrint has once more recorded an increase in turnover.
With its presentation of the two new metal decorating presses Mailänder 280 and MetalStar 3, together with the energy-efficient HighEcon drying oven (winner of the silver Metpack Award 2014), KBA-MetalPrint had a busy year and saw turnover rise to approximately €100 million.
KBA-MetalPrint was able to book a number of new projects in the first weeks of 2015 including an order from the customer Shin Kwang from South Korea, who signed for two further coating lines with a MetalCoat 470 coating machine and LTG drying oven with integrated EcoTNV air purification.
A further project highlight came in the form of a major order from the firm’s longstanding customer Containers Printers in Singapore, who will soon be taking delivery of an 8-colour MetalStar 3 UV printing line.
In addition, Turkey has recently come to the fore as a market with a very large demand for the latest technical solutions with companies Sarten, Kontensan, Yel Teneke and Bantas placing orders.
In addition, KBA has received orders from its longstanding Spanish customer Litalsa, which opted for a multi-colour MetalStar 3 press line with MetalCoat 470 coating machine and a 42-metre-long drying oven.
