Not everything that looks like a stroke of genius on the drawing board, on the computer screen or in theory can fulfil the awakened expectations in reality. What happens daily in the practice of print production is according to its own laws, and only that which actually proves itself in the real world is worth pursuing further in development. Critical feedback from our customers and the users of our machines is a valuable resource for us that we use with appreciation and care for the continuous improvement of our products and services.
... Hohner perfectly fits in our strategy and product portfolio as they demonstrate a great flexibility and willingness to adapt and customize machines to our needs. We have immediately noticed the very high technology behind their engineering and have considered Hohner saddle stitchers and DIGI-Finishers to be attractive for us and the Japanese market. The partnership with Hohner works well, because they are really interested to understand the particular requirements of our market. In terms of Management the shows the right personality; but really, the whole team proves flexibility and speed on demand with a serious attitude of continuous improvement. We look forward to growing this partnership further to a successful business in Japan for a long future in our mutual interest."

... and being faced with new market requirements. Speed and reliable stitching quality were both key criteria at this point in time. It is in this advisory phase for our new investment that we have known and appreciated Hohner as a true innovative partner who really listened diligently to our needs. Today we run the HSB 13.000 for the fourth year and can certify Hohner reliability up to even the After Sales Service. My overall impression: Innovation-driven built machinery‚ made in Germany!“

... Today, by the introduction of their automated saddle stitcher Hohner has evolved to a SME company with a clear core competence in the saddle stitching process and with a number of products for which they may successfully claim the market leader position. And not enough with that, they are the only German Company left in this field. At Steuber we rely on Hohner’s innovative products, as they guarantee high quality standards, reliability and sustainability. It is not for nothing, that also other machines in the Steuber portfolio like for instance the Theisen + Bonitz machines, are exclusively using the stitching heads of the market leader. Moreover, Hohner proves customer proximity and short decision processes.In a word: Hohner is a trustful, competent partner with an attractive modern overall appearance, lived and shared by all the staff, which already reflects the precision behind all that."

... about the higher price level of the Hohner stitching heads. So we have followed the smart proposal of Hohner Nanjing to go for a test phase with Hohner heads at one of our final customers with the result that all of us have been convinced of the extraordinary quality of Hohner’s stitching heads; with 10 stitching heads per machine it’s evident that a defect head causes a production stop each time, which means a high cost for our customers. In the meantime we equip all our machines with hundreds of the reliable Hohner stitching heads 43/6 and 52/8 per year and in this way help our customers to save money. Hohner to us means definitely quality that pays off.“

... which should match our expectations towards speed, product variety, flexibility and fast customer service and granting next to that the highest technological reliability. The DIGI-Finisher fulfils all that; it has been the perfect decision for us; the fact of having right a year later another second line of the same type, is probably the best proof.“
