Continuous investment in advanced equipment and an appropriate infrastructure are a core principle at Hunkeler. In the new Customer Care Center C3 we offer comprehensive line demonstrations as well as training and further education seminars with a measurable effect on your production process.
Are the print colors correct and consistent throughout the print process? Are the number and sequence of pages correct? Was the right envelope selected? Thanks to flawless web inspection and tracking, you will have good answers to these questions and more in the future. It’s always better to be on the safe side, with Hunkeler as your trusted partner.
Safety first – machine safety as well as protecting the environment. Hunkeler modules and solutions are CE-compliant, satisfy UL directives and stand for top quality as confirmed by our ISO 9001 certification. But Hunkeler is also keen on ecological, economic and social sustainability. We satisfy the challenging environmental criteria for RoHs and REACH.
In this year, Josef Hunkeler founded his company, which quickly made a name for itself with the sale and trade of graphic machines and their accessories. Under Franz Hunkeler, the vision of creating a wide variety of finishing solutions from individual machines later became a reality, making the breakthrough of flexible digital printing possible in the first place. Numerous innovations, patents and the integrated approach from development to logistics make Hunkeler AG today, in its third generation, the technology-shaping partner of an entire industry.
Unwinding, perforating, folding, cutting, stacking … All the various paper finishing options using Hunkeler modules and solutions have one thing in common: Swiss precision without compromise. The guarantee promise made by Hunkeler is backed up by people who ensure precision in a seamless process chain: from the development and production of all quality-relevant components and their assembly all the way to commissioning, service, and maintenance.
To ensure our high quality standards down to the smallest detail, we produce our parts and assemblies at our subsidiary Hunkeler Fertigung AG in Switzerland.
Offering suitable solutions requires understanding. Understanding of markets and technology – understanding of specific user concerns. We provide customized solutions based on customer-specific engineering. Above and beyond that, our close collaboration with leading digital printing machine manufacturers and finishing contractors enables precisely targeted solutions. The guiding principle is to implement ideas in practical applications. To this end, we also make use of our cooperation with institutes, universities, and specialists.
Our headquarters are located in Wikon, Switzerland, and will remain there in the future. It is the very heart of our company. The attributes associated with the term ‘Swissness’, such as fairness, precision, reliability, political stability, authenticity, and cleanliness, have shaped our development. However, we have considered ourselves an international company with global responsibilities and a worldwide network for many decades. Both our customers and employees come from all around the world. Our home is wherever digital print finishing solutions “Made by Hunkeler AG” are in demand: all across our planet.
