MAUSER Group, a worldwide leading manufacturer of industrial packaging solutions, recently invited their licensing and know-how partners to the company’s 23rd International Know-How and MIPI Conference in Milano, Italy. “This was an excellent opportunity to present and exchange our view on how to provide best products and services to a global customer base in cooperation with our know-how and technology partners worldwide”, says Hans-Peter Schaefer, CEO of MAUSER Group. “MAUSER’s global expertise and latest innovations were directly reflected by the local market knowledge of our partners and thus all parties have gained valuable findings for the future”.
