Lisec USA is now the market distributor for Schraml, a company it purchased two years ago. In this new capacity, Lisec will now be responsible for sales, installation and aftermarket service for future and existing Schraml glass processing machines in North America.
According to the announcement, since purchasing Schraml, 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 transition the distribution to Lisec America Inc. Schraml glass processing machines were previously sold and serviced in the U.S. by Machines and Wheels exclusively. An agreement was reached with Machines and Wheels in May to end that contract, according to the announcement.
“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,” says Bob Quast, president and CEO of Lisec America .
Hans Hoenig, sales director of Lisec North America adds, “Since we already have a very well-established sales and service organization in the U.S. 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.”
