    “Mark Andy is excited to add a company with such a recognizable brand that has been built over decades with thousands of installations and satisfied customers worldwide,” said Kevin Wilken, CEO, Mark Andy. “We look forward to continuing Kluge’s tradition of high quality products, services, and consumables with the broader support of Mark Andy’s global infrastructure.”


    Kluge provides customers a full life cycle solution for offline finishing with OEM parts and consumables, high quality services, and innovative equipment.


    With a dedication to small and medium size formats, Kluge equipment is an ideal finishing solution for commercial printers and finishers, direct mail manufacturers, as well as packaging converters.


    “Kluge is an industry leader in print finishing and has evolved over the years to meet the ever-changing demands of our customers,” said Michael Aumann, CEO, at Brandtjen and Kluge. “The Brandtjen family is very proud of the legacy they have established and nurtured since the company was founded in 1919. 


    “We view today’s transaction as an opportunity to continue growing our business while joining an even larger family that will allow us to build on our commitment of manufacturing durable equipment and to consistently support profitable operations for our customers.” 


    Aumann will continue to lead Kluge as president of the Brandtjen & Kluge division which will continue its operations in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.
