Authorized Specialist dealer

SDS Ltd.

Founded in 2012 in the Swiss community of Pfäffikon, SDS GmbH is still committed to setting new quality standards in the printing and packaging industry, saving its more than 400 customer companies worldwide time, money and nerves.

As an experienced team of problem solvers and innovators, SDS GmbH has remained committed to the vision of developing the world’s best seals for chambered doctor blade systems. No avenue remains unexplored, no material untouched and no testing phase too costly to ensure that this claim is met.

The focus of all our considerations: the customer. To achieve this, we combine sound, technical knowledge from many years of experience in Rotogravure and flexographic printing with modern design and engineering expertise.

Our Goal:

Giving customers what their machines and plants really need. More efficient, simpler and more qualitative.

What sets us apart from competitors:
We were never really satisfied with the industry standard.

Even as a teenager, founder and Managing Director of SDS GmbH, Karim El Ouahabi, had already set his sights on setting a higher standard of quality in the printing and packaging industry as an entrepreneur during his apprenticeship as a printer.

“Quality degrades if it is not continually improved.”

We are not satisfied with the status quo. Through constant exchange and feedback loops with our customers and partners, we constantly develop and work on the best possible spare and wear parts for your printing and packaging equipment.

„I can only recommend SDS GmbH. The products are high quality and above all durable. Communication was quick and easy. I particularly appreciated the technical understanding in the consultation.“
