New leadership at Bosch Packaging Technology

Dr. König will succeed Friedbert Klefenz, who is set to retire from Bosch Packaging Technology on 30 June 2017

Upon joining the Bosch Group in 1998,  Klefenz assumed leadership of the Pharma Liquid product group at Bosch Packaging Technology. He has been president of Bosch Packaging Technology since April 2002. “Friedbert Klefenz has played a key role for years in advancing Bosch Packaging Technology as a leading provider of packaging and process technology. He has also helped make the division more international. We want to thank  Klefenz for his years of commitment to the company. We also wish Dr. König great success in continuing his predecessor’s great work,” said Dr. Werner Struth, member of the board of management of Robert Bosch GmbH.

Dr. König, who has been associated with Bosch since 1997, has held various positions, including a stint in the Bosch Mobility Solutions business sector. In 2009, Dr. König transferred to the Bosch Packaging Technology division, where he initially oversaw the Assembly Systems and Special Machinery business unit.
