Over the past few years, GARANT has continuously managed to adapt successfully to the challenges of the market and has been on a steady growth trajectory for years. To help us make sure we can continue to offer you the best possible machines and services in future, we decided to move into a brand new building.
The new, cutting-edge building has enough space for a large number of new workstations, larger production halls for an extended product portfolio, and space for innovations in the new, modern Showroom.
We are ready to face the future.
Feel free to speak to your contact here at GARANT if you would like to look around our new premises and explore our new features.

GARANT is one of Germany's top employers for medium-sized businesses. This is the result of a study conducted by Focus-Business in cooperation with kununu.com, the employer rating portal for employees, trainees and applicants.
"We were very pleased to receive this award because we owe it exclusively to our employees," says Marion Müller, personnel officer at GARANT.

Our innovation of 2018
At the Pack Expo 2018 in Chicago GARANT presented the technical innovation of the year 2018 - the MATASIM. This machine will complement the successful range of MATADOR flat and satchel bag making machines.
The MATASIM is to be seen as a basic machine for new markets. It is particularly suitable for customers who are planning to produce simple flat and satchel bags or who want to use this machine for a first step into paper bag production. The main focus of the development was therefore on the principle of simplicity. Paper bags can be produced quickly and with minimal effort.
The MATASIM is characterized by its simple operation and robust construction. As for all GARANT machines, we can offer a suitable printing unit, the LINAFLEX S.
Both machines were presented at the PackExpo 2018 in Chicago.
The machine line was installed by our service technician Vojtech Vybiralik who was able to explain the various functions of the production processes to the visitors on the booth. For the first time John Vander-Putten took part in a GARANT fair. Since last year, he is working for GARANT as the local face of GARANT Sales in the USA.
The MATASIM was a great start for many good discussions. They resulted in several projects for the MATASIM and for other GARANT machines.
50. LONGSLIT 1013 P
For us the year 2018 started with a success story. The 50. LONGSLIT 1013 P has been sold.
The LONGSLIT 1013 P now joins the series of successful machines.
The robust construction and the simple operation are the convincing points, which make the LONGSLIT 1013 P popular for our customers.
GARANT is growing
Ten years ago 60 were working for GARANT, now in September 2016 GARANT has 105 employees.
The space in the office building is becoming tight now.
Since April 2016 a new building is being erected with a direct connection to the old one. On 736 sqm there is place for about 50 new workplaces. The new building also includes a basement for the house utilities, machine documents and technical drawings.
The building is built according to KfW-standards and as also in the old building “green electricity” and LED-lighting will be used.
Until now the construction work is on target, the bare brickwork is mostly completed and first workings in the interior were already done.
At the end of November the building should be completed. By the end of this year the construction department, the service, the purchasing department, the IT department and the shipping department will have moved into their new offices.
GARANT at the drupa 2016
GARANT presented their products at the drupa - the global printing trade fair
The drupa 2016 was a big success for GARANT. The team of GARANT is glad of the high rush of visitors and the really good quality of the 440 conversations on the 11 fair days. “For our customers the format change on our highly modern block bottom bag machine TRIUMPH 2-T8 was very interesting. The format change can be performed within 30 minutes. For the customers this means that long changeover times can be avoided. “said Managing Director Dieter Schallenberg.
