About us

Kruse-Bsat GmbH, Graphische Maschinen, has been an international dealer for used machines for printing and finishing for more than 35 years.

Shareholder and managing director Khaled Bsat founded the company in 1987 as a private company, which was later converted into a GbR and in 1992 into a GmbH. The company has had its headquarters in Minden, in the Päpinghausen industrial area, since 2004. A new hall with 1250 m2 of space for storage, workshop and office was built on a 5000 m2 site.

Company founder and managing director Khaled Bsat brings many years of industry experience and a lot of technical know-how to his daily tasks and activities. His father ran an industrial bookbinding business in Beirut (Lebanon), where he was able to acquire and later expand all the important knowledge about bookbinding technology from an early age. Kruse-Bsat scores with great personal commitment when working with customers, machine builders and partners, which is reflected in very good word of mouth. In addition, she convinces with detailed specialist advice and experience gained over many years with regard to the equipment required for hardcover production.

The company sells used machines from Baier, Kolbus, MBO, Meccanotecnica, Muller Martini, Polar-Mohr, Stahl/Heidelberg and Wohlenberg. These machines are purchased in Central and Northern Europe and sold to customers worldwide (including Africa, India, the Middle East and the Far East). The used machines are prepared for interested parties, workshop checked/cleaned or overhauled and repainted. All processes and activities from disassembly to transport to installation are monitored and controlled by Bsat and its employees.
