Quotes by John (German)

The machines operated here have been obtained and installed by John G. Zabolitzky and are located at Munich, Germany. We expect to technically be able to provide these services for indefinite time. We have several more identical machines in storage for spares and complete documentation available to us. Therefore, it is possible to maintain these machines.

The motivation to do this arises from having worked with these and similar machines for decades with significant enjoyment and success.
