Something we are proud of

What makes working for us so special?

We expect openness, and you can expect it from us. We have a sympathetic ear for new ideas and different opinions; feedback and discussion are a vital part of our company’s culture. Openness is fertile ground for enabling each and every individual to be involved in our development. For active involvement in fantastic packaging solutions. And our shared company success. 

We set ambitious goals every year and keep on developing dynamically. Exciting projects provide plenty of opportunity to get involved, to make a difference and to advance yourself. The hierarchies are flat, and our doors are open. There is a healthy balance between setting specifications and individual responsibility. We also make allowances for family issues. With flexible working hours and our own “Fliegerkiste” day-care centre.

And another thing not available everywhere: a variety of roles and professions in the company plus an extensive range of industries that we work for. This all results in a package that brings new inspiration each day.
