In response to the ever-increasing demand for flexible packaging in Asia, Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica has further expanded its sales capacities. Industrial solution provider, Rieckermann, will in future be assuming responsibility for sales activities in Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines.
“Through the cooperation with Rieckermann, we now have an experienced partner at our side on the Asian market,” says Dr. Peter Lechner, managing director of Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica. “I am certain that the very good local network will help us to be even more successful in Southeast Asia.” The two companies finalised their cooperation agreement at this year’s Chinaplas trade fair in Guangzhou. “Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica offers precisely what more and more Asian customers are demanding – high quality, a broad product portfolio and environment-friendly technologies,” says Kristian Rieck, Rieckermann’s Director of Plastic and Converting. Flexible packaging is the fastest growing sector of the consumer and industrial packaging market.
