Collaboration is key to our success
Climate change, global food security, and responsible use of packaging materials are three of humankind’s greatest challenges. To overcome them will take pioneering solutions that reach beyond the boundaries of individual companies, industries and nations. That is why we at Krones are open to collaboration with outside knowledge carriers to leverage our collective technical expertise. That enables us to continue to develop innovative, sustainable solutions for our customers.
To this end, our Research and Development department, together with Krones’ Italian subsidiary Kosme, has established an innovation hub in Parma, Italy, which will enable more effective cooperation. In concrete terms, it is a space where teams explore development ideas for the food and beverage industry. Of course, the R&D partnerships are not limited to Italy but rather extend to include subject-matter and technology experts wherever they may be located.
