Krones AG, Neutraubling, Germany, has signed a cooperation agreement with the folding-carton producer and multipack specialist A&R Carton Bremen GmbH, Bremen, Germany.
Krones and A&R Carton will be working together worldwide in the
field of packages and packaging machinery. In order to match the machine
and the multipacks being handled to the best possible effect for
meeting the market’s needs, there will be a continuous interchange of
information and ideas between the two partners involved. Together,
Krones and A&R Carton will carry out application-driven development
projects and provide mutual support in their R&D work.
The cooperation agreement does not signify any exclusivity. “Our clients
will continue to enjoy complete freedom in their choice of packaging
vendor”, says Wolfgang Huber, Divisional Manager Packing and Palletising
Technology at Krones AG. “But if a client opts for both partners in the
alliance, his advantage is that he has just a single contact partner
for both the package and the machine”, adds Jens Eckermann, Managing
Director of A&R Carton Bremen GmbH.
