Friedheim has become the exclusive distributor of Hohner stitchers and stitching heads and will be providing a dedicated service and spare parts supply for all Hohner requirements in the UK and Ireland.

The agreement means that Friedheim now represents all the manufacturers in the Post-Press Alliance on these shores and is intended to allow Hohner to provide a better service to its UK and Irish customers, permitting a greater focus on product development.

‘At Friedheim, we take pride in the fact that we only take on the very best manufacturers in the world,’ said managing director Mark Bristow. ‘Hohner are the leaders in this field and are the best at what they do. They are a highly motivated company with a brilliant track record of design and development, bringing the very best of their technology to market. The Hohner range complements our existing manufacturers perfectly, especially regarding the Post Press Alliance, and we’re looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship’

Mr Bristow’s counterpart at Hohner, Hans Peter Schöllhorn, added, ‘Since the first day of our existence, we have set benchmarks in precision and development work. This warrants a quality which, above all, pays off for our customers. With Friedheim sharing our emphasis on quality products, we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship for years to come.’
