KOLBUS ›blue and red‹ brand logo | Two Brand strategy
Over the years, KOLBUS has registered a number of logos. Most recent was the familiar blue and red logo which was launched to coincide with the drupa in 2000 and which is closely connected with the company’s industrial book binding machinery.

Engineering – Large Components.
Kolbus has recently invested 1 million euros in a new, cost-competitive and flexible machining centre being installed in its headquarters in Rahden, Germany. The new system replaces an 18-year-old machine.
Frank Bekemeier, head of Mechanical Processing at Kolbus, explains: “This advanced, high-performance CNC machine is engineered for multi-side processing of workpieces up to 4 metres long. The improved dynamics of the new machine mean that processing times are sharply reduced. We are producing faster and more efficiently.”
