A meeting with Dr Christoph Steger, CSO and Michael Feltes, VP Business Unit Packaging on the challenges within the packaging market by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Otto Appel and Peter Fahnenbruch.

We discussed these topics with the company’s CSO Dr Christoph Steger and the Head of the Packaging Business Unit Michael Feltes during an interesting visit to Engel headquarters in Schwertberg, Austria. Read all about a technological journey through time, and about the philosophy of a family company that has grown organically over the decades and that is now confidently facing up to the challenges of the future.
