Set to grow
Over the past 15 years, the focus of production at the B+K-GROUP's UK subsidiary has gradually shifted from industrial packaging solutions to the production of high-quality packaging films for consumer goods. With four modern flexographic printing presses, B+K UK has now significantly increased capacities at its plant in Telford, and is particularly targeting the food, pet food and hygiene sectors.
"Bischof + Klein enjoys an outstanding reputation in the UK", says Günter Eickholt, Managing Director of B+K UK. The printing has won prizes (EFIA awards), the films offer reliably high quality, and the service is comprehensive. "Of course, we benefit from the B+K-GROUP's know-how and back-up. That is another good reason for customers to choose B+K UK as a partner."
In 1981, Bischof + Klein's first foreign subsidiary started off by producing industrial packaging. Today, B+K UK primarily produces consumer packaging films with high-quality printing. Last year, the company invested in two state-of-the-art printing presses with 8 and 10 colours.
However, technology alone is not enough. Günter Eickholt is proud to be able to state: "Our employees are well trained and experienced." What he finds particularly pleasing is the "extremely good corporate climate." This leads to very low fluctuation. "B+K UK succeeds in keeping good people at the company." He believes that the company's training its own junior staff is another factor for success. In co-operation with training institutions, the company trains industrial mechanics, process engineers and printers according to the German model.
