The global biscuit and confectionery company pladis has signed a preferred supplier agreement with Bosch Packaging Technology at leading trade fair interpack 2017. By signing the agreement, Bosch has become one of pladis’ worldwide preferred suppliers of process and packaging technology for bakery, chocolate, and confectionery products. The global agreement defines their future cooperation in areas ranging from processing and automation technology to packaging machines and systems for primary and secondary packaging.

Bosch has already successfully installed numerous automated packaging solutions for pladis’ biscuits, chocolate and confectionery applications and has helped achieve a very high degree of flexibility in their packaging processes. Bosch Packaging Technology’s large, reliable portfolio of system solutions, supported by a worldwide sales and service network with local points of contact, were the key motivators for pladis to sign the agreement. 

Dr. Stefan König, president of Bosch Packaging Technology, said, “Our relationship with pladis is a perfect example of our system solution approach in operation. By offering easy-to-adapt packaging solutions that grow with your needs, customers like pladis can steadily expand their business, regardless of their geographical location.
