The Founding Grandfather. Did he really exist?

11.04.1996

Sure he did! There’s firm evidence of his existence in testimonies from eye witnesses and historical photos. Keller was established in 1996, when the Founding Grandfather began fabricating printing transfer pads and selling printing machines built in the Far Eastern countries.

Keller soon enjoyed...

11.02.1997

...a growing number of satisfied customers who quickly appreciated the professional skills and reliability of service of the Founding Grandfather. Not more than once did a “Chinese printing contraption” require ASAP services of an experienced technician, who was hired by Keller already in 1997. Keller began growing at a dynamic pace and hiring more printing process experts at the Printing Pad Department.

“Aw, I should have had it ages ago!”, the Founding Grandfather shouted out. What he meant is Keller’s beautiful and spacious screen printing and pad printing preparation department, filled with the latest equipment in the industry. Now Keller could make on its own everything it needed to deliver all its screen and pad printing machines in complete packages with printing pads and plates, screens, and inks.

The fitters and assemblers hired at Keller built the products to his specifications in a new, larger manufacturing building in Skórzewo near Poznań.
