BEIL Registersysteme GmbH – or internationally speaking, the BEIL Group – is the company with the largest product range in the field of punching and bending of printing plates for sheet offset and reel-fed offset on the market, who provide above all an excellent, worldwide active sales and service network. Due to the co-operation with Berth, the BEIL Group completes its product range in the high-end field. The products of both companies can be seen live and tested at the completely new designed training centre of BEIL in Abensberg.
Founded in 1947, Berth Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG is considered one of the leading companies for automatic processing of printing plates. However, developing a worldwide sales and service network turned out to be a difficult undertaking for the company domiciled in Gladenbach near Giessen. Therefore, for a long time, the Hessian company was looking for a strong partner whose service network they could use to improve their customer proximity. With the BEIL Group, the company now found such a partner.
The family-owned company Berth Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG operating in third generation arose from a printing company which was founded in 1947. The company founder Heinrich Berth had developed a method for quickly changing and accurately positioning printing plates with one hand movement. Heinrich Berth received a patent for this method which was the basis for a modern company.
