Bosch Packaging Technology has changed its name to Syntegon, and it will continue to provide processing and packaging technology to the food and pharmaceutical industries.

And, here in Australia, APPMA member Nupac will continue to be Syntegon's partner, providing its customers with processing and packaging solutions.

Peter Pontikis, Nupac owner, said his company's relationship with Bosch extends back to 1987.

“At Nupac, our partnership with a client begins by getting to understand their unique requirements. The partnership is then maintained by tailoring a solution and continues beyond the lifecycle of the equipment supplied,” Pontikis said.

Separately, the Kliklok division of Syntegon is represented in Australia by APPMA member PerForm Packaging Solutions, headed up by Chris Baudinette.

Syntegon’s name change comes after Bosch’s parent company sold its packaging technology division to Luxembourg-based private equity firm, CVC in July of last year.

Syntegon has more than 2000 registered patents, 6100 employees, and installations in 140 countries. This includes 30 locations in 16 countries providing the resources to distribute modules and systems for the pharmaceutical, confectionery, and cosmetics industries, as well as other food and non-food industries. The company has 64,000 machines in operation around the globe.
