ITALY • Dr Peter Lechner is the new CEO at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica, taking over from Christoph Müller, who moves to the company’s supervisory board as chairman.
Peter Lechner has many years of experience in the field of flexible packaging, previously holding leading positions at companies in Germany, the USA and the Czech Republic.
In the coming years Flexotecnica will focus on making the best possible use of Koenig & Bauer’s strong service and sales network and even expanding its flexible packaging activities. In addition, the existing product portfolio is expected to be expanded with a new press to be introduced to the market by the end of this year. Flexo printing is growing at an average rate of four to five percent worldwide, and in some regions even faster. Increased print quality, based on mature prepress and press technology, plays a key role here.
