Clemens Berger heads Bosch Packaging.

Clemens Berger took over the position as head of Bosch Packaging technology’s business unit food. He succeeds Dr Stefan König, who was temporarily responsible for the tasks alongside his role as president of Robert Bosch Packaging Technology GmbH.  “We are delighted to have brought on board an industry expert like Clemens  Berger to further strengthen our market position in the food industry,” König says. 

Berger brings with him extensive experience – from October 2015 he was chief executive officer of Medipak Systems GmbH in Hamburg, Germany, whose products include packaging and inspection technologies for the pharmaceutical industry. Prior to that, he held various management positions at Krones AG in Neutraubling, Germany, a manufacturer of packaging technology for liquid food and beverages. Most recently he was responsible for the business line primary packaging. 

“I am looking forward to working with a dedicated team and am excited about the new tasks that await me. The excellent product portfolio is a great basis for successfully developing the Business Unit further,” explains Berger. Bosch packaging technology’s business unit food has more than 3,000 employees worldwide and generates an annual turnover of more than 600 million euros. The  Business Unit is a leading global supplier of machines, systems, and solutions for horizontal and vertical primary and secondary packaging technology, filling and closing machines for liquid food, as well as process technology for confectionery production. The business unit food is headquartered in Beringen, Switzerland.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
