At the recent fifth annual Digital Packaging Summit 2019 in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, Koenig & Bauer was recognized with the ‘Company to Watch’ award. Organized and managed by NAPCO Media and Packaging Impressions magazine, the Summit, a three-day invitation-only gathering, played host to 95 printing/packaging executives.
On hand were 43 solution providers, including Koenig & Bauer, who presented to and interacted with the packaging executives, sharing case studies and first-hand reactions by users of the sponsoring companies’ technologies.
“The Digital Packaging Summit is an extremely good opportunity to present our company’s digital vision and provides the opportunity for personal round table discussions on the future direction of our industry,” said Eric Frank, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at Koenig & Bauer. “We are very proud to receive this coveted award.”
Koenig & Bauer was also represented by Maik Laubin, Sales Director of Digital Solutions for the VariJET 106. “This event was an outstanding venue for Koenig & Bauer to inform the market on our new VariJET 106 digital 41-inch press and further understand the exact needs of the folding carton market,” said Laubin. “The VariJET 106 will be launched at Drupa 2020 in Düsseldorf, Germany, and we expect tremendous excitement about Koenig & Bauer’s digital initiative that will help our customers grow into new markets and enhance their capabilities. We enjoyed meeting with attendees to understand their options, challenges, economics, and critical decision-making criteria.”
