Kiefel is reinforcing its management. Stefan Moll has been responsible for technical matters as CTO since May 1, 2020, with a particular focus on global medical engineering business. Moll complements the existing management team of Thomas J. Halletz, CEO, and Peter Eisl, CFO.
Stronger focus on sustainability
Food packaging must achieve a balance between sustainability and the need to supply the population. In the current corona pandemic situation, packaging not only ensures durability, but also hygiene – making packaging system-relevant.Materials are valuable resources. “Reduce – Reuse – Recycle” should be more than just buzzwords, they should be brought to life. Therefore, Kiefel has positioned itself for the future and expanded its material processing expertise. Kiefel GmbH, Freilassing is a technology partner in various domains of the plastics and packaging industry, where it supports customers in the development of sustainable materials and products.
Kiefel focuses on 3 pillars for sustainable solutions: economical solutions based on plastic recycling, the use of bio-based and compostable plastics as well as processing of materials from cellulose. Kiefel is also working with the Fraunhofer institutes in Munich and Leipzig, to be always up-to-date in material development. Customers are specifically supported with circular economy approaches. In Kiefel’s “Rethinking Concept” we discuss the product and associated material redesign with the customer. This is considered in terms of product design and functionality, the material and its composition, and ultimately how machines and tools can support an optimized production process.
Kiefel after Corona
Kiefel is expanding its medical business with additional product lines and technologies. The reassessment of the global basic medical care after the corona pandemic, as well as the mega-trend of an increasing and aging population, have highlighted the significance of good patient care. Basic medical care is more important than ever and offers Kiefel additional options. Kiefel stands for high quality and safe medical products. New alternative treatment methods – for example in cancer therapy, in autoimmune diseases or in blood plasma medication – are made possible with Kiefel’s system technology.
