Gernet Printpack with new management
Published on 22.12.2023
With effect from 14 December 2023, Volker Riedle (55) has taken over the management of Gernet Printpack GmbH in Mannheim. The founder of the renowned paper bag maker Bags by Riedle, Langenbrettach, will contribute his almost 30 years of industry experience and his passion for paper to the further strategic expansion of the long-established company, according to a company statement.
Around two years ago, the established specialist printer for packaging, carrier bags and labels, which was founded in 1950, embarked on a new mission, sharpened its values and optimised its processes. As it goes on to say, “the aim was and is to focus more on the interests of customers and to focus on innovations with sustainability. Along the way, the company has listened carefully to its customers, worked on forward-looking offerings and driven forward the innovative combination of classic and digital printing technologies.”
Now the next stage of development is to be reached and further promises are to be fulfilled. The trained print and paper technician Riedle is sending out a clear signal: “We have taken the right path with the announced ‘sustainable GERNET’ and will now consistently realise this vision step by step”. This also means, for example, that customers will be offered sensible solutions for reducing packaging wherever it cannot be avoided.
The previous Managing Director Michael Bromberger had successfully driven forward the digital transformation of the company in recent years and developed it into a small, fine digital forge. He left Gernet Printpack on 13 December 2023 to take on new challenges. www.gernet.de
