LISEC USA TO TAKEOVER SALES AND SERVICE OF SCHRAML MACHINES IN NORTH AMERICA
LiSEC USA to become market distributor for Schraml (a LiSEC Company) effective July 1st, 2018. LiSEC America shall be responsible for sales, installation and aftermarket service for future and existing Schraml glass processing machines in North America. Up until now, Schraml glass processing machines have been exclusively sold and serviced in the USA by Machines and Wheels. In May an agreement was reached with Machines and Wheels to terminate that contract. Bob Quast, President and CEO of LiSEC America, Inc., notes: “We appreciate the previous efforts of Machines and Wheels on the market and look forward to a seamless transition for all Schraml customers in North America”.
Two years ago, LiSEC bought Schraml Glastechnik, since that time LiSEC has been evaluating the existing relationships and looking to the future for Schraml equipment in its various markets. Based on that review the decision was made to move ahead with transitioning the distribution to LiSEC’s existing company in North America, LiSEC America, Inc. As Mr. Hans Hoenig, Sales Director LiSEC North America states: “Since we already have a very well-established sales and service organization in the US with a vast knowledge of the market and trends, it only makes sense to utilize the existing structure to also support Schraml machines in the market”.
