New operation in Italy / Krones subsidiary Kosme relies on Deufol

(PresseBox) (Hofheim (Wallau), ) The Deufol Group has opened a new operation in the Italian municipality of Roverbella on a site directly neighbouring Kosme, the subsidiary of Deufol's customer Krones AG. Deufol Italia S.p.A., the Italian division of the Deufol Group, signed a longterm contract with Kosme regarding packaging solutions for beverage filling machines.

In Roverbella, Deufol packs filling units, palletisers, depalletisers, labelling machines - all of the complex product groups which Kosme S.R.L. distributes around the world from its base in Roverbella. For Deufol, this means that packaging for global transportation needs to meet extremely high standards to guarantee the sound condition of the machines until the contract has been fulfilled. Deufol designs each type of packaging as an individual solution, taking into account various conservation procedures for longterm packaging, climate and statistical conditions during transportation, the requirements of the destination country and much more.

The packaging services are mainly processed in Deufol's own operation center of 2.500 square meters and 2.500 square meters of free space, which directly neighbours the Kosme production facilities. Deufol will also take over inhouse/outsourcing services directly within Kosme's production facilities.

The partnership between Krones and Deufol began in 1997 with the packaging of conveyor belts at the headquarters of Krones AG in Neutraubling near Regensburg. Over the years, a trusting partnership has developed, on the basis of which Deufol was not only able to extend its range of services, but also expand with more operations across Germany. The opening of the Italian operation in Roverbella has enabled the first ever customerspecific geographic expansion across country borders - an initial success in Deufol's expansion strategy.

As a global supplier of packaging services, Deufol has benefited from its existing Italian business while making this step. Deufol Italia S.p.A., based in Fagnano Olona, which previously operated mainly as a provider for packaging and related services for stationery products and fashion jewellery, is also processing this business in the area of export and industrial goods packaging at the new Roverbella operation.
