Zecher GmbHAbout our company

Pioneers of the anilox roller

Everything at Zecher has always revolved around anilox rollers: What began with the production of the world’s first regularly engraved anilox roller has developed into an international quality provider of innovative anilox roller solutions. Since the founding in 1948 by Kurt Zecher, we have continuously dealt with the performance of the printing roller, so that we now have over 70 years of experience in the manufacture of your engraved anilox roller.

Customized services for your requirements

For optimum printing results, the anilox rollers must be adapted to your personal conditions – this is the only way to get the best out of your printing process. This is why we offer you a wide range of anilox roller solutions and additional services that we would be happy to tailor to your requirements. In addition, we invite you to benefit from our printing experience. Our application technology team will support you with your printing challenges.

The story behind Zecher GmbH

Our quality principle

In our four production plants at the company headquarters in Paderborn, our team of over 170 employees produces anilox rollers and anilox roller sleeves for your printing application. Production takes place exclusively in Germany so that we can ensure continuous compliance with our own quality standards. For you, this means that we can reliably reproduce your rollers.

Cooperation with machine manufacturers

For many years we have been working intensively with all well-known machine manufacturers and end users in the areas of label printing, flexible packaging, offset, coating and corrugated cardboard. You can convince yourself of the fruitage of this cooperation at the machine demonstrations at international trade fairs.

From Paderborn to the whole world

Starting out small with exports to Austria and Switzerland, we now have an extensive network of sales partners that is growing continuously. Our Zecher anilox rollers are used today in printing machines all over the world. With our sales partners in around 60 countries, we ensure that your personal contact person is there for you on site and also supports you beyond the purchase of the anilox roller.
