Selection from a bigger product portfolio to meet requirements

„By bundling the activities under one roof we coordinate our group-wide activities to the benefit of the customers.

Central coordinator of the activities is Netstal, where the strengths and competences are combined in the Business Unit PET to achieve a uniform appearance in the market. Thomas Anderegg assumes the responsibility for the new Business Unit in addition to his existing tasks. He has been in charge of Netstal's Sales, Marketing and Applications Departments with the Business Units CAP, MED, PAC and TEC since 2009. The PET products of Netstal and KraussMaffei will be marketed under the names of PET-LINE and PETForm, respectively. „I'm sure that this step will further strengthen our market appearance in the area of PET. The members of the team are highly competent and I wish every success to all those involved ", says Straub.
