New KBA Webshop

Modern, customer-oriented web interface

The KBA webshop offers a simple and easy-to-use interface

The Koenig & Bauer (KBA) website now offers its customers enhanced features, fresh design and a high level of user friendliness along with many other advantages through the
constantly growing Internet sales channel—a new KBA Webshop for spare parts, consumables and services. “Building on the experience of our already successful webshop, we have incorporated many ideas and tips from our customers in the new webshop,”
says Thomas Potzkai, head of service at KBA-Digital & Web.

Thanks to its easy-to-understand and user-friendly navigation, it is easier for customers to find their way around in the KBA Webshop and to use all of the relevant content intuitively. The new KBA Webshop is going online in time for the company’s 200th anniversary.

Group-wide introduction planned

The Webshop will first be offered to customers of KBA-Digital & Web Solutions, and then gradually it will be launched worldwide. In further steps, KBA-Sheetfed Solutions, the Swiss KBA-NotaSys SA, KBA-MetalPrint GmbH, KBA-Metronic GmbH and KBA-Flexotecnica S.p.A. will install the new Webshop this year. The updated Webshop is one of many initiatives within the framework of a group-wide service project, with the aim of further increasing customer satisfaction.

Many features in the new KBA Webshop

The shop can be used on PCs as well as mobile devices, and with the update it now has many new features and search options. A shopping cart function, for example, offers the option of integrating consumable materials and parts subject to wear and tear in a cyclical ordering mode. An availability indicator is another useful feature for customers to optimise their purchasing planning and warehouse management.

“Our SWebshop is of course an ongoing process. We will always offer new features and continuously develop our shop further. For example, ‘flowless coupling’ so that orders can be triggered using customer-specific ordering systems,” says Potzkai. In addition to the broad product range, services can also be requested using the new KBA Webshop, for example a thermography audit or a machine network test.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
