Our contribution to a better world

Our solutions ensure the integrity and safety of the packaged good. With this we build the foundation to transport sensitive products to people worldwide.

We are experts for all products that require specific protection against external influence like temperature, moisture as well as unwanted usage, counterfeit or contamination.

We want to improve the quality of life – today and for generations to come. Thus, we think in decades and are committed to corporate social responsibility, pursuing a comprehensive sustainability strategy with a special focus on climate protection.

The summit we want to climb in 10 years

The summit we want to climb in 10 years

We are a group of strong, independent companies, sharing common values and committed to reach synergies. We understand the needs and wishes of our customers and set innovative impulses, to expand our business in the relevant markets. We are always open-minded, think beyond existing solutions and create sustainable value for our customers. Our highly qualified and motivated employees are the key success factor.

Beyond packaging is our claim. We are experts across the entire value chain of packaging sensitive products. The packaging ecosystem goes far beyond the packaging machine. It is a network of partners and market players involved in solutions around packaging. Within this ecosystem, we stand at our customers’ side and give advice with an end-to-end view, from product design and engineering to plant operation and distribution, from raw material to end customer. Our holistic solution portfolio covers the entire packaging value chain. If we don’t have the solution, we have partners in our ecosystem on-board to provide the answer.
