HANS KOLB Wellpappe was founded in Memmingen in 1933 and is currently led by second‑generation managing partner Alwin J. Kolb and managing director Dr. Bernhard Ruffing. The company is an international supplier with a workforce of around 1,100 employees, who develop and produce a broad spectrum of packaging, packaging materials and special corrugated board products.
“In exactly the same way as for our analog presses, the CorruFLEX and CorruCUT, we based the project specifications on a careful evaluation of the market and customer wishes,” said Christoph Müller, Koenig & Bauer management board member. “The KOLB Group is here an ideal partner with whom to further the development of our new CorruJET for digital post-printing on corrugated board.” The CorruJET is set to enter production in the second quarter of 2019.
“Differentiation, fast time-to-market scenarios, or reduced run lengths in conjunction with increased versioning – the demands expressed by our customers are forever changing,” said Dr. Bernhard Ruffing, managing director of Hans Kolb Wellpappe. “Against this background, the focus is naturally turning to the option of digital post-printing. With Koenig & Bauer and the CorruJET, we are well equipped to respond to future customer demands and can also open up new markets.”
