Waalwijk, Netherlands GWS Printing Systems (GWS) and The Siebold Company, Inc. (TSC) are pleased to announce they have combined their efforts to better serve the web offset printing market. Florida-based TSC now represents the Dutch web offset equipment specialist throughout TSC’s trading area that includes the USA, Canada and the English-speaking Caribbean Islands. Combined, TSC and GWS have over 60 years of experience in the printing industry.

TSC is an electromechanical installation contractor specializing in web offset printing equipment and material handling with over 5,000 installations since 1989. The company recently acquired both Smith Pressroom Products and Dauphin Graphic Machines (DGM) thereby significantly strengthening its presence in the printing market.
Jim Siebold, President of The Siebold Company, feels the exclusive distribution agreement and cooperation with GWS will help TSC better serve their valued customers. ‘The current consolidation in the newspaper and commercial web offset printing industry in North America has made high-tech project solutions based on quality used equipment a viable option. The combined industry experience of our two companies allows us to offer unique high-end products and services to our customers.’
GWS’s Commercial Director Eric van Kessel is also excited about working with TSC. ‘As our USA Sales Executive Ton Tinneman’s recently retired after almost 20 years, we were looking for a strong new partner in the North American market. Siebold turned out to be the perfect fit, as they work at the same high level of quality we do. Together we will not only be offering excellent quality used equipment originating from Europe, but will have complete solutions including the required maintenance, service and after sales support.’
TSC and GWS will exhibit together during the upcoming 2018 METRO PRODUCTION CONFERENCE, May 31 – June 3 at the Saddlebrook Conference Center, Wesley Chapel, Florida.
