Mark Andy has acquired Brandtjen & Kluge, a U.S. manufacturer of print finishing equipment for foil stamping, diecutting, folding and gluing, and UV coating, a move that will further enable Mark Andy to become a total solutions partner, it says.

Dedicated to small- and medium-size formats, Wisconsin-based Kluge offers equipment suitable for commercial printers and finishers, direct mail manufacturers, as well as packaging converters. It strives to provide customers with a full lifecycle solution for offline finishing with OEM parts and consumables, services, and equipment.

“Mark Andy is excited to add a company with such a recognizable brand that has been built over decades with thousands of installations and satisfied customers worldwide,” Kevin Wilken, Mark Andy CEO, said. “We look forward to continuing Kluge’s tradition of high quality products, services, and consumables with the broader support of Mark Andy’s global infrastructure.”

Headquartered in Chesterfield, Mo., Mark Andy develops technologies for the label and packaging industries. The Brandtjen & Kluge purchase news comes shortly after Mark Andy’s acquisition of Presstek, a global supplier of DI (direct imaging) offset plates and presses, and CTP solutions, in March.
