Amalgamation of Kobusch Folien and Sengewald Verpackungen. (Company Evolution).

The two Pactiv companies Kobusch Folien (Warburg) and Sengewald Verpackungen (Halle/Westf.) will officially form one company with effect from the 1st August 2002, Kobusch-Sengewald GmbH & Co. KG.

With this amalgamation, both firms are reacting to market requirements. In future, Kobusch-Sengewald's customers will profit from even more efficiency, more extensive know how and even greater flexibility and higher capacity. "With this amalgamation we are clustering the strengths of both companies and further developing our market position," explained Albert Leutscher, Managing Director of Flexible and Medical Packaging Group Europe, Pactiv Corporation.

The subsidiaries have already worked together on several occasions in the past, the last time was in the years 1993 to 1995 under the name Kobusch/Sengewald (K/S), however without merging to form a legal unit. Kobusch-Sengewald is an internationally successful manufacturer and processor of special packaging foils for food, chemical, medical and hygiene products.

With its products, the company has a top position in some sectors. With special peel foils, durably sterile and deep-drawn foils, the company has also firmly established itself throughout the European market. A further example of Kobusch-Sengewald's foil competence is its high-quality barrier foils, among other things for packaging with a protective atmosphere (MAP: Modified Atmosphere Packaging). In the medical sector Kobusch-Sengewald has set the standards with its PVC-free Propyflex infusion bag.

The two predecessor companies Kobusch Folien and Sengewald Verpackungen earned 102 million Euros in 2001 with a total of 500 employees.
