AUSPACK 2022 saw Nupac showcasing Syntegon as part of its stand after the purchase and rebrand of Bosch Packaging Technology to Syntegon in January of 2020.
After 3 years without an AUSPACK exhibition Nupac was excited to present Syntegon on their stand, with Peter Pontikis, their managing director stating that “presenting the Syntegon brand for the first time at an Australian exhibition was an important moment, and one we are proud to be a part of”.
Representing Syntegon, and previously Bosch Packaging Technology for over 35 years in Australia and New Zealand, Nupac is a trusted provider of high-quality packaging and processing solutions, working with companies such as Mondelez, Mars, McCains, Arnott’s, Bega, and Nestle, as well as smaller companies looking to take the next step towards high quality, high speed packaging solutions.
With their first presence at an Australian exhibition since the rebrand, Syntegon will be exhibiting their focus on sustainable, future proof solutions, while also reinforcing to the industry that although the company has a new name, it still provides the same market leading, innovative, expert packaging solutions.
Standing for synergy, technology, and future focus, Syntegon have placed an emphasis on sustainability, with their mission statement highlighting the company’s goal, ‘processing and packaging technology for a better life’.
“Now, more than ever before, we are working on intelligent and sustainable technologies and embracing the collaboration with our business partners in the true spirit of partnership,” said Dr. Stefan König, chairman of the Syntegon Executive Board.
Building on their 160 years of experience providing flexible and reliable technologies to produce and pack confectionery, dry food, frozen food, and dairy products, Syntegon have continued to grow the brand.
In 2021 alone they saw order income rising 13.1 per cent while total sales also saw an increase of 9.9 per cent, showing strong gains.
“We have successfully strengthened our global presence and will continue to be an important partner for food and pharmaceutical manufacturers worldwide,” says Dr Walter Bickel, chief financial officer at Syntegon.
In 2021, Syntegon also strengthened its efforts towards environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG), committing to the UN Global Compact and successfully completing its first sustainability assessment by the global rating agency EcoVadis. One of the company’s goals is to reduce its CO2 emissions by 25 percent until 2025, compared to 2019.
One method to help achieve this company goal will be to make all its food packaging machines ready to process sustainable materials by the end of 2022.
Syntegon also catered to the growing demand for automation and flexibility by bringing two innovative robotic solutions to the market: the integrated Sigpack TTMD top load cartoner and the scalable, modular Robotic Pick-and-Place platform RPP.
Both complement Syntegon’s system competence for the food industry, which ranges from process technology to primary, secondary, and tertiary packaging.
Moreover, Syntegon expanded its inline filling portfolio for preformed containers with the new LFS filling machine for clean and ultra-clean hygiene levels of liquid and viscous products.
“We are setting the course for a successful future,” said Dr Grosse.
“Our expanded service and machine portfolio will help us to build and maintain strong partnerships with our customers. We will support them in leveraging the full potential of future trends in the food and pharmaceutical industries.”
Since the purchase and rename of Bosch packaging Technologies, Syntegon has continued to provide high quality solutions in Australia and NZ, with Nupac additionally contributing, selling and commissioning machinery across the Australian and New Zealand markets.
As trusted providers, and partners of Syntegon, Nupac also presented other market leading solutions including European brands SN Maschinenbau, AZO and Russell Finex.
Some of these solutions were on display at AUSPACK, including a Cobot Palletizing system and high speed VFFS bagging machine.
The team at Nupac also discussed new and innovative solutions, sustainable options as well how manufacturers can look at getting the best outcomes out of their upcoming projects.
