Lisec USA became market distributor for Schraml, a Lisec Company. Lisec America will be responsible for sales, installation and aftermarket service for future and existing Schraml glass processing machines in North America.

Up until now, Schraml glass processing machines have been exclusively sold and serviced in the USA by Machines and Wheels. In May, an agreement was reached with Machines and Wheels to terminate that contract.

“We appreciate the previous efforts of Machines and Wheels on the market and look forward to a seamless transition for all Schraml customers in North America,” says Bob Quast, president and CEO of Lisec America Inc.

Lisec bought Schraml Glastechnik two years ago. Since that time, Lisec has been evaluating the existing relationships and looking to the future for Schraml equipment in its various markets. Based on that review the decision was made to move ahead with transitioning the distribution to Lisec’s existing company in North America, Lisec America Inc.

“Since we already have a very well-established sales and service organization in the U.S. with a vast knowledge of the market and trends, it only makes sense to utilize the existing structure to also support Schraml machines in the market,” says Hans Hoenig, sales director, Lisec North America.
