In September 2022, we acquired a stake in the Turkish company MAKREV Packaging. With this move, we expanded our product portfolio to offer attractive packaging solutions to customers in the mid-price range. MAKREV’s machines are renowned and achieve packaging speeds of up to 900 pieces per minute.
In 2021, we established a digitalization platform “Sweet Connect” for the confectionery industry. This platform enables the comprehensive digital representation of the entire production process. Alongside our partners Sollich, Chocotech, Oka, and Winkler & Dünnebier, we provide consolidated resources and a practical digital platform. Our customers worldwide have responded enthusiastically to this concept.
We are constantly working on the advancement and innovation of our processes and machinery. Therefore, we actively seek collaboration with universities and academic institutions. Through partnerships with scientific establishments such as the Institute of Processing Machinery and Technology at Technical University Dresden or the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology, we conduct joint research projects to gain crucial insights into the application of new materials and manufacturing techniques. This knowledge contributes to the development of resource-efficient machinery and benefits our customers.
