During the press conference at Interpack, Multivac’s group presidents CEO, Christian Traumann and CSO, Tobias Richter reflected on a successful 2022 in spite of all the uncertainties. According to the motto “Multiply Your Value”, the Multivac Group is showcasing its processing and packaging solutions as well as its state-of-the-art digital services - offering more efficiency, automation, digitalisation and sustainability.

The Multivac Group is presenting its portfolio for the food industry as well as for the medical goods and pharmaceutical industries – on a total of four exhibition areas at the trade fair. “With several fully-automated packaging lines, we are demonstrating our far-reaching automation expertise. Here, our Multivac Line Control (MLC) system enables the efficient, centralised operation of our processing and packaging lines,” said Tobias Richter. “We are also focusing on our portfolio of semi-automatic and automatic packaging solutions for small and medium-sized processors at the Interpack. Moreover, we are presenting concepts for the production of sustainable packaging solutions as well as solutions for the digitalisation of processes and business models.

Turning to the key topics of digitalisation and sustainability, which are in the spotlight at the interpack, Christian Traumann concluded, “The mechanical engineering sector can leverage its technologies to provide answers to many of today’s issues, for example in terms of sustainability. As a technology leader, the Multivac Group is committed to shaping the future. This is why we are involved in key industry initiatives such as R-Cycle or the Open Industry 4.0 Alliance.

The company is presenting its new corporate design for the first time at the Interpack. It was developed with the objective of bringing together Multivac with Fritsch and TVI, which have been part of the group for several years, under the Multivac Group.

Multivac continues to grow
“We entered 2023 with a good volume of orders,” Christian Traumann commented. “In view of rising energy, raw material prices and inflation, however, our customers’ willingness to invest in Germany and Europe is cautious. To counteract a tightening order intake, we continue to focus on our product portfolio with innovative solutions, which is being continuously expanded. Our global sales and service network ensures proximity to our customers,” he added.

The technological openness practised in these alliances offers outstanding innovation potential, from which our customers also greatly benefit.”

Change in the Management Board
Three new Group Presidents- Bernd Höpner (CTO), Christian Lau (COO) and Tobias Richter (CSO) – from within the company were appointed on January 1, 2023.
