Within the framework of measures to further strengthen its focus on the growing packaging market, Koenig & Bauer AG (KBA) has announced a a management change at Italian subsidiary KBA_Flexotecnica S.p.A., the group's flexible packaging specialist with offices in Tavazzano near Milan.
Christoph Müller, managing director of KBA-Digital & Web Solutions AG & Co. KG – based at the KBA headquarters in Würzburg – and at the same time a member of the group management, has taken on additional responsibility as managing director for KBA-Flexotecnica S.p.A. with effect from 4st January 2017. Claudio Bisogni, who led the company with great dedication before and after the acquisition by Koenig & Bauer in December 2013, left the company at the end of 2016 to continue pursuit of his personal career roadmap.
The management change at KBA-Flexotecnica S.p.A. is expected to intensify cooperation between the locations and will simplify access to technical and human resources at the main production facility in Würzburg. In the coming year, Koenig & Bauer plans to open a demo centre at its Würzburg main location. Exploiting the convenient transport links to Frankfurt Airport, as a key hub for international business travellers, this will provide modern opportunities for presentation of both the technically outstanding flexo web presses from Tavazzano and other product lines. As demand continues to increase, the allocation of additional facilities for assembly of the CI flexo presses designed in Italy is a further option.
