22 years in the graphic industry has given Leif Hansen a huge international network. After graduating from Technology Management and Marine Engineering, Leif was in 1994 employed as a multi-technician at Heidelberg, where he installed and serviced printing machines.
In 2000, he chose to start his own service company – Press Service – which he built up over six years and it consisted of 12 employees.
In 2006, Leif sold the company to KBA Nordic and was personally a part of the set-up for almost three years.
After that, Press Trading was born, which primarily was buying and selling used graphic machines and today we still buy, sell and repair graphic equipment around the world and today we are 5 people.
In addition to buying and selling, we also take care of repairing and preparing machines and are usually also responsible for both dismantling and setting up. On that basis, one would think that this is a very large organization. But we are just five employees, the rest are freelancers. We can have up to 15 men involved in one project, and we have more than 100 freelancers affiliated worldwide.
If a machine is on our sales list, it either belongs to us or we are authorized by our customer to sell it.
With so many machines on our hands, we are strong both in terms of assessment, sales, packing and loading, and export of graphic machines of all types and sizes.
If you are unsure whether the sale of your machine is a good idea, we will help you make the decision.
And we will even ensure all dismantling, packing and transportation.
Due to our expertise in shipping, insuring, dismantling, and setting up, renovating, testing, etc. Press Trading also has partnership agreements with several different graphic machine suppliers.
We go where the market is. It’s not something we can control. We can just keep up, and then of course it is important to have capital to invest for and time to wait.
