The founder of printing press construction

Carl August Reichenbach (1801–1883) takes over Sander'sche Maschinen-Fabrik in Augsburg together with his brother in law Carl Buz in 1844.

Before this, he completed an apprenticeship in all areas of flatbed press construction in the company of his uncle, Friedrich Gottlob Koenig (inventor of the flatbed press).

Reichenbach manufactures a printing press of the newest design in Augsburg: The flatbed press with railway movement, delivered from 1845. He thereby establishes printing press construction.
