Hermann Koch: 8 million euros invested in four years!

8 million euros, is the amount which will be invested in four years by the management of Hermann Koch, a German company whose creation dates back to 1914 and who has now specialized in the manufacture of plastic jars, sticks and bottles. Their targets: the consolidation of the company’s market shares on existing products, and more importantly, the conquest of new sectors through innovation.

New products

It’s a strong change in management process that Hermann Koch has been experiencing, during several months. [1] Through the impetus given by its new CEO, Christian Lützenrath, it is a big part of the organization and industrial objectives including the product range which are being rethought.

The first objective for the German converter specialized in plastic injection, extrusion and blow injection, is to innovate and offer new products to the customer market. Main production, still today, with 75 per cent, a full range of jars of many different sizes mainly PP-made. “We have decided, among others things,” explain Melanie Krempel and Susanne Heinrich at the Marketing and Innovation Department, in Coburg, “to create several new standard lines combining jars, but also bottles with new design.” A decision which paid off with the new line Sipario introduced for the first time this year. And it only the beginning of it. Each year will see a new line emerge.
