Margot Rauscher

Zeutschel scanners receive the highest distinction at the renowned Modern Library Awards.

  The Platinum Award goes to the OS Q overhead scanner series and the Zeutschel ScanStudio.

The awards are given by librarians in the United States.

Zeutschel's long-standing sales partner The Crowley Company accepted the awards and received two additional Platinum Awards for its digitization services and the self-developed MACH microfilm scanner series.

"The awards are not only an expression of our innovation leadership in the market, but also the result of the excellent work of our US partner The Crowley Company. For this, many thanks to the entire Crowley team", commented Jörg Vogler, President of Zeutschel.

And Pat Crowley, President of The Crowley Company adds:“These awards are based on end-user feedback. To be honored with a Modern Library award is, by extension, to be honored by our customers. I find that both humbling and gratifying.”

Only customers having experience with the products were permitted to judge

The Modern Library Awards were created to recognize the top products and services in the library market. Applications were submitted in the Fall of 2020. Only customers having experience with the products or services submitted were permitted to judge functionality, value and customer service.
