MANAGER INNOVATION AND R&D

At R&D we develop film solutions that help customers better protect their products. We establish the connection between new materials, the film’s properties and the customer’s needs. Our R&D team has expertise in various areas of the packaging industry. Together with suppliers and researchers, we test all new ideas in our pilot line. Every day we accumulate a little bit more knowledge and when a test succeeds all pieces of the puzzle fall into place. This way we develop perfect solutions for our customers. These varied aspects make working on innovation challenging and enjoyable.
