As the market leader, Krones is in an excellent position to benefit from industry growth
Krones operates worldwide, delivering leading technologies for filling and packaging, process engineering, and intralogistics as well as solutions for digitalisation for the food and beverage industries.
In its core business area, bottling and packaging equipment, Krones is by far the world’s market leader. Besides the two major European competitors, KHS (a subsidiary of the Salzgitter Group) and Tetra-Pak subsidiary Sidel, there are also many smaller competitors.
In the process technology segment, Krones offers products for breweries and producers of soft drinks, milk and dairy drinks, and water (SDW). We are the world’s second-largest supplier of brewing technology. Krones’ market position is not quite as strong in SDW process technology. We aim to achieve better than average growth in this attractive market in the years ahead.
Krones has been expanding its intralogistics operations considerably since 2016. The acquisition of the Italian company System Logistics has made Krones an important player in the market for internal logistics for the food and beverage industry. As a result, Krones is now well represented for all stages of value creation in beverage production and able to deliver everything from a single source.
Since Krones knows all of the processes involved in beverage production and bottling down to the smallest details, the company is in an excellent position to be part of the increasing digitalisation of beverage production. By intelligently connecting data, we are developing solutions that give our customers clear, comprehensive added value. We have bundled our digitalisation and IT expertise in Syskron.
