About EKS

Einbecker Kennzeichnungssysteme GmbH (EKS) is a manufacturer of flexographic printing units for printing on both web and sheet substrates. Almost all materials are processed, from paper to plastic foils and special materials such as twin-wall plastic sheets or gypsum boards.

Originally founded more than 70 years ago for the development, manufacture and sale of marking and coding systems, EKS has increasingly specialized in integrated flexo printing systems for demanding single-color and multicolor industrial flexo printing since the 2000s.

AkeBoose takes over production and service of EKS systems

AkeBoose will continue the design, manufacture and maintenance of new and existing EKS machinery, and has taken over the EKS service staff so that EKS customers around the world can continue to turn to their usual service contacts.

Expansion of AkeBoose product range

For AkeBoose, the acquisition of EKS represents a further expansion of the existing product range. In addition to printing press components such as chamber doctor blade systems, ink supply systems and customer-specific systems for the application of ink or other fluids in flexographic, gravure and offset printing processes, which AkeBoose produces in Germany and sells internationally, EKS flexographic printing presses now complete the product range as complete solutions. The EKS brand will remain part of this product segment.

The production of EKS machinery will be integrated into the Agergaard Group's facilities in Celle, Lower Saxony in Germany, for which the warehouse and production area will be expanded. The aftersales service for spare parts and consumables for EKS machinery has already been operating there since 2019 under the roof of AkeBoose's sister company Agergaard Graphic Supplies GmbH.
