Bürkle GmbH and Otto Künnecke GmbH announced jointly that they have entered into a transfer of manufacturing of the Bürkle Card Body Fabrication line (which includes card blanking (punch), tape laying and collation equipment) from Bürkle to Otto Künnecke. Both companies are leaders in their respective fields within the plastic card fabrication and personalization provider base.

Künnecke’s vision is to integrate portions of the fabrication equipment line into full turn-key manufacturing solutions. Bürkle North America will continue to market and service all Bürkle Lamination – CHK SmartLam – equipment going forward.
