L to R: Michael Grau, Gietz AG Sales Director; Claudia Gietz, Gietz AG Managing Director; Paul Mattle, VP Sales North America, Gietz AG; Alex Balke, Gietz USA President; and Hansjörg Gietz, Gietz AG Managing Director.

Gietz USA LLC has been founded as an independent entity, offering sales and services of the entire Gietz product portfolio from Southington, Conn.

Gietz AG, a family-owned Swiss manufacturer of flatbed hot foil stamping and embossing machines, plans to cooperate with Gietz USA LLC to increase its direct representation to existing and new customers in Canada and the U.S.

During a transition phase, Matik Incorporated, the long-time Gietz distribution partner for the territory, will continue to sell spare parts until the end of the year, while Gietz USA will immediately take over all equipment servicing.


Gietz USA was founded by Alexander Balke, President and Owner, who has more than a decade of experience in the foil stamping and embossing industry. He has worked closely with Gietz AG for more than three years.

“Alex has been a great asset to Matik. His technical knowledge and attention to detail is second to none and we wish him the best of luck with this new endeavour. Customers are lucky to still have him,” says David Siegel of Matik.
