GERMANY, Frankfurt The Multivac group increased its turnover in 2015 by 19.3 per cent to EUR 897 million. Sales of EUR 369 million were posted in Germany, 11.1 per cent more than in the previous year.
CEO Hans-Joachim Boekstegers announced these figures at a press conference given at the IFFA. The packaging specialist, recently renamed Multivac Sepp Haggenmüller SE & co. KG for strategic reasons, thus bucked the trend, as Boekstegers pointed out. He was particularly pleased with the almost 160 per cent increase in sales of the top-selling R085 Thermoformers and T250 Traysealers. He sees general trends towards attractive vacuum packaging, convenience food at a higher level, and individual portion packs.
