You want straightforward machinery that prints reliably. You want fast delivery on parts and consumables. And you want technical support to be available when you need it. The buying process should be easy too. You want clear pricing, without having to wait days or weeks. You want to know exactly what you are getting and be certain it will do what you need.
PrintSafe has been the UK and Ireland agent for Koenig & Bauer Coding – previously called KBA-Metronic – for approaching 20 years. When we took over support of the German manufacturer’s UK customers back in 2006, we were a (very) small team of service engineers travelling lots of miles to service hot foil coders, continuous inkjet printers and ‘Metronic’ sleeve and carton feeding machines. Over time we also started selling and installing new machinery.
Today, our engineering team has grown. We also have dedicated machinery and aftersales teams. Our approach remains the same: to supply reliable printers backed by dependable technical support. And to make every part of the process as smooth as possible.
We support manufacturers of all sizes and across all industries. Our continuous inkjet printers are used by multi-site cable manufacturers and craft breweries. Our udaFORMAXX carton feeders are used by global pharmaceutical companies through to specialist food producers.
We always receive outstanding after-sales support from PrintSafe, whether it’s over the telephone or on-site visits. This plays an important part within our decision making when buying new equipment. Knowledge of their products, reliability and our ongoing working relationship has kept us working with PrintSafe for many years.
