Developments at KBA support strengthening position in flexible packaging

By David PittmanRead later

KBA has outlined plans to strengthen its focus on the growing packaging market, with greater cooperation across the group and a new demonstration center featuring KBA-Flexotecnica technology at its headquarters in Würzburg, Germany.

Exploiting transport links to Frankfurt Airport as a key hub for international business travellers, KBA said the new facility at its site in Würzburg will provide modern opportunities for presentation of both the ‘technically outstanding’ flexo web presses from its Italian subsidiary, based in Tavazzano near Milan, and other product lines.

As demand continues to increase, the allocation of additional facilities for assembly of the CI flexo presses designed in Italy is a further option.

These developments coincides with the appointment of Christoph Müller as the new managing director of KBA-Flexotecnica, as reported here, which is expected to intensify cooperation between the group’s locations in Germany and Italy, and simplify access to technical and human resources at the main production facility in Würzburg.
