New sheetfed presses for the heart of Africa
KBA drives growth with seminars and sales in central Africa
KBA will continue the series of seminars in Africa. The most recent one, which focused on its web and security press technology along with sheetfed, took place at the end of August in Cotonou, the capital of Benin, and attracted 80 printers from all over the country. Speaking at the seminar Ludwig Lindner, Germany's ambassador to Benin, emphasised the importance of such an initiative in view of the local printing industry's urgent need of new technology and the transfer of knowledge. While visiting various printing plants after the seminar, KBA representatives discovered a vintage SRIII built at the group's Würzburg headquarters. KBA is planning further projects in West Africa.
