As part of the strategy to offer service and support the entire product portfolio, Glunz & Jensen has acquired Grafisk Kvik Service ApS (GKS) from September 1st, 2013.
GKS will be part of the Glunz & Jensen Group and help build-up a professional service and support business unit. Together Glunz & Jensen and GKS will work to expand their business to include servicing Europe and North America.
GKS is a service company specialised in the installation, service and maintenance of graphic equipment, including CtP systems, plate and film processers, post-press equipment, along with sales of spare parts and service contracts.
For 20 years, GKS has been a dedicated service provider of Glunz & Jensen manufactured equipment and has serviced equipment in Denmark and southern Sweden. This service will continue and expand into Europe and North America, where Glunz & Jensen has facilities to develop their new service and support concept, under the leadership of Klaus Olsen, former owner of GKS.
Keld Thorsen, CEO of Glunz & Jensen: "With the acquisition of GKS, we can offer our OEM customers and their end users the full product package – from installation to service and maintenance throughout the product´s lifetime. As a result, Glunz & Jensen will be in more direct contact with the end users, enabling us to be more proactive in relation to product development. "
"We have always developed and marketed OEM products, and now we can offer our OEM customers service and maintain their installed base in Europe and North America, as they wish."
GKS will continue as an independent company within Glunz & Jensen, but will physically move into Glunz & Jensen's headquarters in Ringsted, Denmark in September 2013.
