“Koenig & Bauer is an established leader and is celebrating its third century in business. We are confident that the addition of the Rapida 105 PRO to our current installed base of Koenig & Bauer presses will further enhance our capabilities, quality, competitiveness, and add much needed capacity. Simply put, we believe that this press is exactly what we needed and is the best of the best.”
