Krones and A&R Carton Bremen in collaboration for packaging machine

Krones AG, a plastics processing machines provider based in Germany, has signed a cooperation agreement with folding-carbon producer

and multipack company A&R Carton Bremen GmbH.

According to the announcement, Krones and A&R Carton will be working together worldwide in the field of packages and packaging machinery. Both parties will together carry out application-driven development projects and provide mutual support in their R&D work. The aim is to create packers with tools for enhanced handling dependability, and packaging that is suited to the handling equipment involved.

The cooperation agreement does not signify any exclusivity. “Our clients will continue to enjoy complete freedom in their choice of packaging vendor,” said Wolfgang Huber, Divisional Manager Packing and Palletizing Technology at Krones AG.

“But if a client opts for both partners in the alliance, his advantage is that he has just a single contact partner for both the package and the machine,” added Jens Eckermann, Managing Director of A&R Carton Bremen GmbH.
