GWS & The Siebold Company team up in North America

GWS Printing Systems is happy to announce its partnership with The Siebold Company (TSC). Florida, USA-based TSC will effective immediately represent the Dutch specialist in used web offset equipment in the US, Canada and English-speaking Caribbean Islands. Combined the two companies have over 60 years of experience in the printing industry.

TSC and GWS sign the cooperation agreement

TSC is an electromechanical installation contractor specializing in web offset printing equipment and material handling with over 5,000 installations since 1989. The company recently acquired both Smith Pressroom Products and Dauphin Graphic Machines (DGM) thereby significantly strengthening its presence in the printing market.

Jim Siebold, President of The Siebold Company, feels the cooperation with GWS is a logical next step. ‘The current consolidation in the newspaper and commercial web offset printing industry in North America has made high-tech project solutions on the basis of quality used equipment a viable option. The combined industry experience of our two companies allows us to offer unique high end services and products to printers and publishers in our areas.’

GWS’s Commercial Director Eric van Kessel is also very content with the agreement. ‘As our USA Sales Executive Ton Tinnemans recently retired after almost 20 years, we were looking for a strong new partner in the market. Siebold turned out to be the perfect fit, as they work at the same high level of quality we do. Together we will not only be offering excellent quality used equipment originating from Europe, but will have complete solutions including the required maintenance, service and after sales support.’

The agency and cooperation agreement was signed at GWS’s Dutch Head Quarters on 7 February. TSC and GWS will exhibit together during the upcoming 2018 METRO PRODUCTION CONFERENCE, May 31 – June 3 at the Saddlebrook Conference Center, Wesley Chapel, Florida.
