The Alpla Group, the global packaging solutions and recycling specialist has announced that it is strengthening its footprint in Asia. On 1 January 2022, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) head office in Singapore will go live. A new region is created from a merger of the former regions of North-East Asia and South-East Asia. It includes current operations in China, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

Roland Wallner, designated as company’s managing director for region APAC, North East Asia, will manage the APAC region. With 2,750 employees, Alpla APAC is well situated to develop tomorrow’s packaging for the Asian market. Alongside extending the reach of Alpla’s industry-leading molding technology, a strong focus lies on the further development of circular economy activities in the region.

Alpla chief executive officer Philipp Lehner states, “We are convinced that establishing this new regional organization is the right step to support our ambitions in the region. It will especially enable us to develop market-leading products and services for our growing customer base in Asia.”

Roland Wallner adds, “With this step, we are bundling our extensive competencies and resources in different markets of the region and aligning them in terms of strategic development, customer service, sales, and purchasing.”
