Expanding the Körber ecosystem
Today, market challenges can only be addressed with an integrated approach that brings together industry knowledge, technology expertise, and a focus on customer service and digital tools across the entire value chain. This combined approach has led to the intentional transition of the Körber ecosystem from a trusted machinery supplier to a true strategic partner.
“Full integration of industry-leading tissue converting and packaging solutions with technological skill sets from other Körber business areas such as Digital and Supply Chain is the key,” said Pete Augustine, President, Körber Business Area Tissue North America. “Doing so positions Körber to help tissue converters make their business stronger, by increasing OEE and safety, enabling product differentiation and sales, and enhancing the sustainability of their operations”.
Körber packaging solutions: history of performance, future of innovation

Körber Business Area Tissue is using that strong history and reputation to develop packaging innovations for the future. “An impressive packaging solutions portfolio gets even stronger, and new solutions are helping tissue manufacturers find effective ways to drive operational, product development, and sustainability initiatives,” said Claudio Munoz, Körber Business Area Tissue Marketing Director for Americas.
