On 19.06.2019 we had the pleasure to present a new packaging solution for the packaging industry at the RosUpack 2019 exhibition in Moscow, the largest event for this industry in Russia.
During their presentation on “Paper as a functional material for flexible packaging – the trend of the future”, our Russian Sales Manager for paper, Konstantin Zobkov, and our Vice President, Wilhelm Massegg, together with Yevgen Zolotkovski, Sales Director for flexible paper at our principal Koehler Paper Group, underlined the advantages of paper compared to plastic for the packaging industry.
Paper is one of the most important sustainable packaging materials which in the very near future could be integrated in a closed recycle process, by using secondary fibers in the production of corrugated packaging, cardboard packaging and hygienic paper. One of the advantages of using paper and cardboard is lower licensing fees for companies in different industries.
Besides all advantages for businesses, during their presentation our three experts pointed out that from an economic point of view, consumers perceive paper as the most environmentally friendly material which stimulates sales and leads to a higher income.
For Polo and Koehler Paper Group it was an interesting experience and a great opportunity to present a new solution for the packaging industry. We are looking forward to successful future presentations of this new solution!
As already announced last year, the Robert Bosch Group has decided to sell the business division Bosch Packaging Technology by the end of 2019.
In the beginning of this year it was commonly decided by the Management of Polo Handels AG in CEE and Russia to transfer the current Bosch Packaging Technology to Polo Russia by 1st of July 2019. This decision was based on the trustful and long cooperation between Bosch Packaging and Polo Handels AG.
The existing team of Bosch Packaging Russia will be integrated into the Russian Polo organization and will therefore guarantee a stable, unchanged contact to its business partners for new machinery sales as well as spare parts and services.
Also, in future the new substantially grown Polo Russia team, consisting of 32 process and packaging specialists, will provide high quality equipment for the pharmaceutical and food industry. In combination with innovative technologies and professional services for processing and packaging technologies throughout the entire machine life cycle, we are in line with customers’ needs and modern trends in the pharmaceutical and food industry.
Polo always strives to fulfil the individual requirements of the customers for flexible machinery for a variety of pack styles, sizes and products, solutions for personalized packaging, sustainable processes with less resource usage, scalability from R&D to high output and short delivery times for machines, format and spare parts.
With its local warehouse and the local service engineers, Polo underlines its strategic commitment to strengthen its market position in the CIS market and to provide an excellent local and customised service to its business partners.
