Syntegon
Torsten Türling becomes the new CEO of Syntegon Group from 1 November 2023

The Syntegon Group, a global provider of processing and packaging technology, has appointed Torsten Türling as new chief executive officer (CEO). He succeeds Michael Grosse, who will leave the company by mutual agreement on 31 October 2023, following three-and-a-half successful years as CEO. For the next phase of the company’s development, Syntegon is strengthening its executive board with an experienced manager who will continue to drive the company’s growth and innovation and will significantly reinforce its sales activities.

With Torsten Türling, Syntegon wins a growth-oriented strategist with a strong focus on implementation. He has over 30 years of international management and sales expertise, with extensive CEO experience at the helm of well-known listed and privately owned companies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Nilfisk, a leading global supplier of professional cleaning equipment based in Denmark and listed on the stock exchange. 

During his tenure, he initiated the strategic repositioning of the company and achieved significant progress in growth and sustainability. Previously, he was CEO of Ideal Standard International, where he was responsible for a successful turnaround. He further held various management positions at Linde AG and, as Managing director of Linde Refrigeration, led its successful integration into Carrier Corporation following the spin-off. He holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Saarbrücken and a Master of Management from EM Lyon Business School in Lyon.

 Michael Grosse has been CEO of Syntegon since 2020, and as such has been largely responsible for the company’s successful transformation into an internationally independent company following its spin-off from Bosch at the end of 2019.

“We thank Michael Grosse for his outstanding contribution to Syntegon and wish him all the best for the future. He has steered the company safely through the pandemic and the ongoing global supply chain crisis. Under his leadership, Syntegon has made excellent progress in recent years. For the next phase of Syntegon’s development we are delighted to welcome Torsten Türling, an internationally experienced manager with proven sales expertise. With his strong focus on innovation and expansion of sales structures, Torsten will contribute to the company’s further growth,” says Marc Strobel, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Syntegon.

“Syntegon has made impressive progress as an independent company since its spin-off from Bosch. I look forward to contributing my expertise to the company and working with the global team to realize the group’s growth potential. Syntegon’s ability to develop customer-specific solutions is unique and its innovative range of products and services already excites customers around the world,” says Torsten Türling.

“It has been a great pleasure and an honor to lead Syntegon on its journey to become an independent, leading, and global provider of innovative and sustainable processing and packaging solutions,” says Michael Grosse. “Now is the right time to pass on the baton. I wish Torsten great success and fulfilment in his new role. At the same time, I would like to thank all our employees for their trust and their unwavering commitment throughout my tenure.”

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
