Baumann represents well known manufacturers in the printing industry like AGFA, Kodak and manroland and has its own manufacturing companies Baumann Maschinenbau, Wohlenberg and Perfecta which develops and produces cutting and perfect binding solutions for the printing world.
Christian Baumann, owner of Heinrich Baumann Grafisches Centrum, said "The concept from Highcon for a Direct-to-Pack finishing solution is amazing. It will create new opportunities for our customers, make short-runs profitable and will change the industry. We are very proud to become Highcon's channel partner in Germany to promote and support this idea to our German customers."
Nigel Tracey, Highcon International Sales Director added, "We are looking forward to cooperating with Baumann and are excited about introducing the Highcon Euclid into the German market which is known for its appreciation of advanced technologies. We believe the Highcon Direct-to-Pack digital finishing solution will be very well received by folding carton converters here."
