Top performance confirmed

21. December 2012

Bischof + Klein is helping Germany to put its best foot forwards.

North Rhine-Westphalian minister of the economy Garrelt Duin recently confirmed this to the company as part of the international campaign "Germany at its best". In the autumn, a high-ranking jury selected the 100 most convincing entries from the online portal These will also be listed in the book entitled "Germany at its best: North Rhine-Westphalia", which is due to be published in the spring of 2013 in German and English.

Since 2011, the state has been advertising its outstanding performances in industry, science and technology as well as culture and sport. On the basis of specific examples, the initiative shows the areas in which North Rhine-Westphalia puts in nationally and internationally recognised top performances. Bischof + Klein took part with its wide range of packaging and film solutions, which make their way around the world from Lengerich: practical packaging for dog food to Australia. Sterile bags for pharmaceuticals to Korea. Protective films for the automotive industry to France.

Technicians and development engineers have access to a globally unique range of production opportunities at the company's Westphalian headquarters. This is where flexible alternatives to conventional packaging solutions are manufactured using plastic and laminated materials, reducing raw materials by as much as 80%. For over 25 years, Bischof + Klein has been regarded as a pioneer of sustainable management and was one of the first industrial companies to integrate ecological requirements into its corporate policies. "We are proud to be one of the crème de la crème of German industry", stated managing director Dr. Volker Pfennig.
