BEUMER Group: Interview with Gregor Baumeister, Head of Palletising and Packaging Systems Division, and Christian Freise, Senior Sales Manager Chemical Division
“Our systems can map all customer processes”
Mr Baumeister, as Head of the Palletising and Packaging Systems Division at BEUMER Group you manage and coordinate the global competence centre in this field. What are your goals?
Baumeister: With the management of the Palletising and Packaging Systems Division, I have taken on a highly exciting and varied task. Together with my team, I am responsible among other things for developing and expanding the comprehensive solutions portfolio. My goal is very simple: I want to continuously promote the worldwide growth of this business sector. To achieve this, we must establish ourselves in a regionally balanced manner that helps us support our customers throughout the world in the best possible way. We focus on industries with the potential for growth and sectors in which we are fully established as for example the chemical industry. We will continue to offer attractive intelligent solutions to our customers.
Mr Freise, you are part of the “Chemical team” within BEUMER Group. What are the tasks performed by you and your colleagues?
Freise: We take care of customers who are looking for packaging solutions in the chemical and petrochemical industry. With our team we combine specific industry knowledge with the knowledge of the available technologies. This may concern simple products or entire packaging lines. The requirements of the chemical sector, and especially in the petrochemical industry, are very specific. The design of our machines and systems can always be customised to meet the specific requirements of different industries – and especially of this sector. Of course we continue to develop our portfolio further. We also provide special solutions for particularly demanding tasks.
