Durst and Koenig & Bauer have appointed Robert Stabler as Managing Director of the new joint venture effective August 1. Koenig & Bauer Durst GmbH was officially established early May, following the clearance of antitrust regulations from the relevant authorities.

Robert Stabler, who grew up in the U.K., has global experience in technology companies servicing the graphic arts and document management industries. Before joining Koenig & Bauer Durst, he was Senior Vice-President with Xerox’s Continuous Feed Business, based in Rochester, N.Y.; his previous executive roles also include HP and Agfa.

Business operations are now under way for joint development and marketing of single-pass digital printing systems for the folding carton and corrugated fibreboard industry. Koenig & Bauer Durst will have its registered office in Würzburg, Bavaria, Germany, and cooperate closely with both parent companies’ global network. Initially, the joint venture portfolio will comprise the Koenig & Bauer CorruJET 170 and the Durst SPC 130 – including all associated services and the ink business as well as the development of the VariJET 106.
 
“I am really excited to take on this new challenge in the folding carton and corrugated packaging markets,” said Stabler. “Both are ripe for digital transformation with run lengths declining in both segments and brands crying out for very good, cost effective, short-run and versioning solutions.

Durst with its expertise in digital imaging, production systems, inks and software integration, Koenig & Bauer with all its mechanical knowledge, high duty cycle process, engineering, paper transport capabilities plus, of course, the great go-to-market expertise of both teams.”
