In a nutshell:
The Kolb Group and its software-department k_concept2publish is a leading service provider for product information management, digital asset management, print automation and prepress operations. For more than 40 years the Kolb group has been supporting large enterprises with the creation of their print publications.
Kolb Group is a major partner of SAP Hybris and Werk II and implements product information management-, digital asset management- and print publishing solutions based on hybris and Werk II worldwide.
With more than 45 years of experience in prepress and catalog production the Kolb Group offers its customers an extraordinary base of know-how. As one of the first service providers the Kolb Group has focused, together with hybris and Werk II, on the optimization, digitization and automation of print publication creation processes and achieved considerable success. Today, we combine the best of two worlds and combine prepress services with IT services, which ultimately leads to an increase in efficiency and a cost-reduction at our customers.
We offer services throughout the entire process of print publication creation. We support our customers starting with their catalog concept and catalog design, their product information, product data maintenance and enrichment processes, with the automatic creation of print publications and in the end with the manual finishing. Meanwhile we keep focused on the project objectives, to achieve a significant relief in the complex data maintenance- and print- processes. Based in Germany and Austria we operate worldwide to run our PIM-, MAM/DAM-, Print- and Prepress-projects.

Based on those values we aim for long-lasting partnerships with our customers that enable us to use our knowhow efficiently.
