Packaging and plastics processing

With several hundred thousand employees, the plastics processing industry and the packaging sector are important sectors within the manufacturing industry in Germany.

International competitive pressure and the associated cost pressure as well as the highly emotional topics of energy and the environment, especially in Europe, present our customers in these industries with complex challenges.

Typical questions of our clients are:

  • Conversion to environmentally or climate friendly production

  • Use of regenerative raw materials and/or recyclable plastics (recyclate)

  • Securing production supplies in the face of increasing raw material shortages

  • Compensating for the shortage of skilled workers as a limiting factor for further development

  • New opportunities with 3D printing or rapid prototyping

  • Complexity in logistics processing, especially for customer-specific requirements (value added services)

New products and business models are needed to meet these challenges. Logistical opportunities lie in automation, digitization and in planning and controlling the value chain. The establishment of tailored logistics services to ensure customer proximity is a key success factor.
