MAUSER Group and NCG at FachPack 2015: The Success Story continues.

The innovative and sustainable packaging concepts of MAUSER Group and its subsidiary National Container Group (NCG) generated great interest at this year's FachPack exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany. Customers and prospective customers were able to experience first-hand, how the life cycle of industrial packaging is closed.

The leading regional trade show took place from September 29th until October 1st showcasing products and services in the fields of packaging, technology, processing and logistics. New records were recorded in terms of visitor numbers (43,000) and exhibitors (1,565). "For MAUSER and NCG, the FachPack fair was a very good measure to introduce our sustainable packaging innovations out of the Infinity-SeriesTM and the unique food IBC solution MAUSER FP AsepticTM to existing customers and many prospects. We clearly recognize that the fair has gained importance with its many visitors from abroad" remarked Dr. Urs Geisel, Head of Sales MAUSER Europe.

One of the highlights at the MAUSER booth was the Infinity-IBC in which the inner container has a proportion of recycled material in its multilayer structure. "The combination of less CO2 emissions, reduced consumption of raw materials and its attractive pricing has helped position this IBC to a firm place in the product range of NCG" explains Andreas Schubert, Head of Sales Europe of the National Container Group.

As with previous FachPack exhibitions, a strong customer interest was noted for the extensive range of blow-molded bottles and cans for the chemical and petrochemical industries as well as for crop protection. Industry expertise and flexible product configuration has been highlighted in many discussions with customers as a key strength of MAUSER.
