Krones transfers valve technology business to new subsidiary, Evoguard GmbH

Krones, a leader in beverage filling and packaging technology, has founded Evoguard GmbH to operate its valve technology business on a stand-alone basis.

Evoguard GmbH is located in Nittenau, Germany, and is owned 100% by Krones AG. The company started its business operations in Nittenau at the beginning of January 2014.

Krones began to develop its own series of valves under the name of Evoguard several years ago, and is now able to offer a complete product range that is not only an attractive proposition for the food, beverage and dairy industries but also ideally suited for the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors.

In order to accelerate sales growth in sectors outside the food and beverage industry, Krones has spun off its valve technology operations from its core business into a stand-alone unit. As an independent and autonomous company, Evoguard GmbH is benefiting from a favorable cost structure, high flexibility, and the efficient decision-making of a streamlined management structure.

Evoguard valves are produced in Nittenau, where the 4,000m2 production and administration building houses the R&D, design, sales, and assembly operations.
