Auer looks to region for growth.

Auer Packaging, the Germany-based manufacturer of plastic storage and transport containers, plans to focus on the emerging packaging industry in the Middle East.

The company was in Dubai recently to participate in the Gulf Pack exhibition and received a very good response from the market, according to its founder Robert Auer. "The Middle East will be our focus as growth in the industrial and food processing sectors has triggered demand for packaging," says Auer. Established in Germany over 24 years ago, the company manufactures a wide range of packaging containers for material handling with applications in several sectors including automotive, food and chemicals. "Our high-quality, robust transport and storage containers are developed and manufactured on computer-controlled machines in our modern facilities in Amerang and HohenpeiBenberg where innovations are translated into practice to ensure best quality, economical production and flexibility," Auer says. The company highlights that its products are ideal for use wherever hygienic, stackable plastic containers play an important role in transport and storage. "Our products comprising Euro containers, storage containers, big boxes, collapsible bulk containers, perforated containers, intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), pallets and pails with lid are not sensitive to acids and alkaline solutions, are available in all popular sizes, cold and heat resistant, offer optimal handling due to ergonomic handles and are suitable for conveyor systems," says the founder. "Our collapsible bulk containers with cut-out handles with flaps offer cost advantages due to reduction in volume for return transport. Cut-out handles with flaps facilitate easier loading /unloading," he says. "Plastic pallets offer a high load-bearing capacity, despite their low empty weight and are suitable for world-wide export." Auer IBCs offer considerable cost advantage in comparison with conventional systems due to collapsible construction and changeable liner bags. The company also offers plastic buckets that are suitable for the storage and provisioning of solid and fluid materials. The buckets are manufactured from polypropylene and in most cases have a unique closing system. "Approved for the food industry and fitted with anti-lid lifting protection and the rim sealing system, this container is a widely versatile packaging medium," Auer adds.
