Top-quality beverages and liquid foods are made of valuable raw materials like water, plant-based proteins and oats, fresh milk or hops, malt and yeast. But before they leave the factory, they go through a host of different processing steps – and the Krones Group has a suitable technical solution for each of these, starting with production itself, then state-of-the-art filling and packaging lines right through to plastics recycling, intralogistics and digitalisation.
It’s not only millions of beverage bottles and cans that are handled on Krones lines every day, the company’s solutions are also used in the food and stimulants industries, plus the chemical, cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors.
The company is headquartered in Neutraubling, Germany, and employs around 17,200 people worldwide. Consolidated sales in 2022 totalled 4,209 billion euros. Around 90 per cent of Krones’ products are sold abroad. Its roughly 2,500-strong international service team make sure customers get fast and targeted support – no matter when and where it is needed. The Krones Group includes not only Krones AG (listed on the stock exchange), but also more than 100 subsidiaries and production, sales and service companies worldwide.
