Packaging Valley with new leadership

As of 1 December 2019, Martin Buchwitz will follow in the footsteps of Kurt Engel as the new Managing Director of the South German packaging cluster Packaging Valley Germany e. V. This marks the end of an era. Since the foundation of the association in 2007, Kurt Engel has been responsible for the business from Schwäbisch Hall/Germany. Together with the founding members, he steered Packaging Valley into the future and turned the association with more than 40 companies from the packaging industry into a competence cluster known regionally, nationally and even internationally.

Engineer Martin Buchwitz has been on board since 1 October 2019 and will take over the helm at the end of the year. He knows mechanical engineering from many sides. As a trained electronics engineer, he worked in automation technology. Sales, marketing and press and public relations work in this area were also stations in his career.
