Baumer appoints Schneiders

New technical sales manager

Andreas Schneiders, technical sales manager corrugated at Baumer

The 48 year old Andreas schneiders has been appointed as the new technical sales manager corrugated at Baumer with effect from 1 July 2016. Schneiders has been working at Baumer since 1999 and has acquired vast experience in various fields across all the relevant industries and applications when it comes to the subject of adhesive applications, including the associated quality assurance and camera verification systems.

In his previous position as applications engineer, Schneiders already specialized in the corrugated sector over the past four years. He supported countless Baumer customers worldwide by providing on-site advice and assistance regarding the realization of optimum gluing systems – particularly also to meet customer-specific requirements. He will be putting the practical knowledge gathered during this time into his new capacity as global technical sales manager corrugated, in order to develop innovative solutions for the future demands of the corrugated industry, together with the experts from the Research & Development department and in close collaboration with customers.

“The manufacture of corrugated packaging is showing a clear trend towards zero-defect production, as in other sectors. I see one of the focusses of my work as being on helping our customers to get as close as possible to this target. In this context, Industry 4.0 will also be a topic in the FFG sector in future, meaning the more extensive integration of production systems,” says Schneiders, formulating the key content of his new position. “In
addition to which, I think it will be an extremely exciting job to consistently exploit the enormous growth potential of our innovative solutions for adhesive application and quality assurance in corrugated conversion, particularly in the emerging nations.” Schneiders is the successor to Thomas FischerMoore, who no longer works for Baumer.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
