Cardbox Packaging values Heidelberg as partner in packaging printingMay 20, 2020
Cardbox Packaging is an international manufacturer of high-quality and technically sophisticated folding cartons with an annual turnover of around 45 million euros. The company operates production sites in Austria (Wolfsberg and Pinkafeld), the Czech Republic (Zádveřice), and most recently in the United States (Pittston, PA). Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg) supported the setup in Pittston with extensive consulting services and an overall solution package comprising machines, service, and consumables. Cardbox Packaging is supported and advised by the Global and International Account Group at Heidelberg.
The goal of Cardbox Packaging is to expand the business through the addition of new sites and to give each location a sustainable orientation. From the beginning, the company has counted on strategic partners for this purpose. “One of the main reasons for the success of our expansion strategy is that we brought the right partners on board, Greiner Packaging and Heidelberg. Both are innovative and customer-oriented – and that’s how we see ourselves too,” says Roland Schöberl, CEO Cardbox Packaging Holding. The joint venture with Greiner Packaging, one of the world’s leading providers of plastic packagings with sites around the globe, paved the way into the North American market. When another major customer, a brand owner based in Europe, indicated its intention to have its folding cartons produced at Cardbox Packaging in the future, the move across the Atlantic was a foregone conclusion.
However, the market in the US works differently to Europe in all regards, whether consumers, clients, or suppliers. Cardbox Packaging therefore intensified its collaboration with Heidelberg as a global partner.
