Koenig & Bauer Lauvic becomes wholly owned subsidiary

Koenig & Bauer will be operating through a branch office of its own in Spain in future.

With immediate effect, the current agency Koenig & Bauer Lauvic in Barcelona is being taken over and transformed into a 100% group subsidiary. Sascha Fischer has been appointed as new Managing Director.

Current and prospective users will benefit from a stronger presence of the Koenig & Bauer brand in Spain, and from the even more direct communication between the local office and the individual business units and manufacturing plants of the Koenig & Bauer Group.

Koenig & Bauer Lauvic retains its current responsibility for sales and service for the sheetfed offset product portfolio, for digital & web offerings, and for CI flexo presses. Twenty staff look after the needs of Spanish print companies. A parts store with a full assortment of spares and wearing parts ensures the fast availability of all necessary supplies. All existing contacts remain unchanged. In other words, customers and business partners can continue to interact with Koenig & Bauer Lauvic using the familiar channels.

The previous owners and managing directors José Antonio Díaz and Juan Díaz are to remain involved with the company as advisers to the new management. Under their leadership, Koenig & Bauer Lauvic grew into a highly successful partner to the Spanish print and media industry over the past 30 years.
