ZAHORANSKY and KOCH Pac-Systeme establish close cooperation in the blister packaging sector

Effective immediately, ZAHORANSKY and KOCH have agreed to work closely together in the blister packaging sector, in terms of both technology and sales. This new cooperation focuses on providing sustainable, environmentally-friendly packaging solutions in the personal care sector. To achieve this, the KOCH model series KDT and KBS will be integrated into the ZAHORANSKY portfolio, while the ZAHORANSKY Z.PACK 4 | 5 machines will be available from KOCH.

 

This combined portfolio will provide comprehensive market coverage for the demand for plastic and, in particular, mono-material cardboard blisters in the personal care sector. From the customer’s point of view, all packaging requirements can now be fulfilled, as Robert Dous, Managing Director of ZAHORANSKY Automation & Molds and Chief Sales Officer of ZAHORANSKY GROUP, confirms:

 

          “KOCH and ZAHORANSKY are a perfect match. From the first idea to the implementation of this cooperation, we worked together in a spirit of trust and with the same objectives.”

 

Harald Jung, Chairman of the Management Board and CEO of KOCH Pac-Systeme GmbH, is also pleased with the cooperation, adding:

 

          “We are proud that ZAHORANSKY has chosen our technologically-leading product range. This offers the best solution to meet current and future environmental, climate, and sustainability challenges.”

 

Customers from the personal care sector will benefit from the new cooperation on two levels: With KOCH, they have at their disposal the industry benchmark for sustainable, sales-enhancing blister packaging solutions. ZAHORANSKY, on the other hand, is the leading supplier of manufacturing systems for the automated and highly efficient production of toothbrushes and other personal care products. Their joint competencies in the areas of application technology and automation are now being combined in a way to meet every need, both in terms of products and packaging. Harald Jung adds:

 

          “The two companies’ cultures, technological competencies, and customer orientation are both exemplary – exactly what customers expect from successful market leaders from the Black Forest.”

 

Sustainable packaging is trending – ZAHORANSKY can now provide full coverage of the increased demand for mono-material cardboard blisters with the cutting-edge technology of KOCH’s machines. As the respective technologies are technically aligned, integration into either existing or new manufacturing systems is seamless. Robert Dous sees further advantages in the cooperation:

 

                   “KOCH is also the perfect partner for us from a technical and commercial perspective. They have a modern, and extensive product range that offers suitable solutions for environmental, climate, and sustainability challenges. In order to reach this level in blister packaging machines for mono-material cardboard packaging, we would have had to invest heavily in development. We can now use this capacity for our core business areas.”
