Krifft & Zipsner GmbH – we move with system!
As the “hidden champion” in the field of mechanical engineering, Krifft & Zipsner GmbH is a market leader in the production of pile turners, transport and conveyor systems as well as in the construction of special machinery.
We have been designing and realising projects for such clients as the global market leaders Bobst AG, Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG, Koenig & Bauer AG, Stock Maschinenbau GmbH, to name but a few, for over 25 years. As an owner-managed, nationally and internationally operating company, this guarantees Krifft & Zipsner its place amongst the industry leaders.The highest quality, dependability and on-time delivery are of particular importance to us.
The company was established in May 1993 by our Managing Director Klaus Zipsner, and now has three production sites in Steinebach/Sieg. Industriestraße 4 is home to the assembly plant and the paint shop. This is where the mechanical components are produced from high-quality steel, painted and pre-assembled for final assembly.
The first floor of the building is also where the “Electronic Design” department works, as does the general Administration department, including the individual departments such as Purchasing, Financial Accounting and HR.
A new production hall at Industriestraße 17 is where the final assembly is carried out: the mechanical and electrical components are assembled to produce professional conveyor systems and pile turners.
The first floor of the building at Industriestraße 17 houses further departments such as the Sales, Mechanical Engineering, Service and IT departments, the management and various meeting rooms.
The professionally equipped electrical workshop is located right opposite the final assembly hall. In the so-called e-hall, the control boxes and the cables for our conveyor systems and pile turners are prepared in line with the customer’s specifications and professionally assembled.
A further new processing hall for metal products, in particular for turning and milling work, was only recently opened beneath the final assembly hall.
We currently have a workforce of around 130 permanent employees and around 40 flexible temporary workers who perform various, complex tasks on a daily basis at our company in order to complete individual customer orders in a professional, timely manner. The employees realise innovative, individual solutions for our global customers in the packaging and printing industries. It is only by knowing the wishes and needs of their customers and by possessing many years’ expertise in the market that a company can offer them professional solutions. Irrespective of their duties – consulting, design or the assembly of the individual customer projects on site – our employees continually receive training and further training in the pertinent department.
To this end, we work very closely with the OEMs in the packaging and printing industries, and are proud to include these global market leaders and many more amongst our partners of many years’ standing. We develop logistics systems for the fully-automatic operation of printing machines, for punching machines, for laminating and foiling equipment, folder gluers and cross-cutting machinery, even when the machines operate in non-stop mode. We stand for creative, high-quality systems and innovative solutions for the conveyance and the preparation of printing and packaging products.
Since it was founded over a quarter of a century ago, Krifft & Zipsner has designed, produced and delivered over 2,500 machines and conveyor systems. In addition to national printing and packaging companies, we deliver our logistics systems and machinery to market-leading companies in Europe and the whole world. Of particular note are the sales cooperations with our representatives Mr. Axel Conrads (CICODS) in Chicago, who is working with us to expand the North American market and our representative Mr. Jeppe Mølvadgaard (Nortech Solutions) in Aarhus, who is driving the expansion of our pile turners and conveyor technology in Scandinavia.
