Possehl and Langley Agree on Global Sales and Service Cooperation

The manroland web systems GmbH and manroland sheetfed GmbH, the companies owned by the German Possehl group and British industrialist Tony Langley, announce global sales and service agreements.

Over 40 sales and service companies were acquired along with the Langley deal, while subsidiaries in India and Australasia were acquired by Possehl.

Peter Kuisle for manroland web systems GmbH and Rafael Penuela for manroland sheetfed GmbH jointly announce that they have now agreed on a global sales and service cooperation.

manroland web systems GmbH have established own subsidiaries in the United Kingdom, operating from Possehl premises near London, and in the United States. In the US, manroland web systems Inc. began trading from the same premises in Chicago it now shares with manroland sheetfed Inc., and in the UK, manroland sheetfed (UK) Ltd. continues to trade from the premises in Mitcham.

Elsewhere, agency agreements are being agreed with sheetfed subsidiaries to represent manroland web systems in Mexico and South America (except Chile), in Ireland, Finland, Benelux, France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal, in Central and Eastern Europe (except Poland), and in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan).

manroland web systems subsidiaries in Australasia and India will continue to represent manroland sheetfed in those territories.

The arrangements make perfect sense for all concerned and both manroland web systems and manroland sheetfed look forward to continuing to support their global customers with the highest possible levels of service.
