ROVEMA GmbH welcomes international guests


At the annual sales meeting in February, more than 70 employees and representatives of ROVEMA from the EMEA area (Europe, Middle East and Africa) met to discuss current developments and innovations. 

After a very successful fiscal year 2018, with a turnover of 110 million Euros, ROVEMA plans a further increase in turnover for 2019. The main increase in sales is expected from US and Asia.  The technical developments in the confectionary sector and the proceeding internal development in robotics and final packaging will contribute to achieve these objectives. 

To provide enough room for this development, ROVEMA is currently building a new assembly hall, measuring 3.300 m². 

CEO Peter Baumgartner and Roland Kuhn Vice President of sales led the 2-day event. In addition to the presentation and introduction of new and future product developments, contributions on Life Cycle Management and sustainability were part of the program.  „The lively discussion on sustainability is of course a topic for us all. Our machines process various packaging materials - including plastics. Many clients are now interested in sustainable solutions and specifically ask for those. Thanks to our high-quality machines and our application know how, we are able to offer different solutions and advice comprehensively, “says Kuhn.  ROVEMA has been relying on sustainable solution for many years – with market-oriented packaging solutions, an easy machine operation and a comprehensive maintenance and service concept. 

However, to operate machines efficiently on a long-term basis, operators on-site need to be included. ROVEMA has recognized this demand and completely revised its training department in 2018: contemporary trainings are now available all year round in Fernwald using updated contents and materials. 

After a certain production time, often in a 3-shift operation, even ROVEMA machines need maintenance or modernization work. In addition to this global offering, ROVEMA provides complete overhauls of used packaging machines: ROVEMA Retrofit. Machines that are decades old are brought up to the latest technical standards. „The high reliability and availability of ROVEMA products is of crucial importance for our clients. With our international Life Cycle Service Organization, we support our clients throughout the machine’s life cycle with quicker, more reliable spare parts, modernizations to enhance productivity, efficient service deployments and a broad training program for machine operators. Through this trusting cooperation, our machines remain up to date with the latest technology for decades and reach optimum reliability and availability,” explains Peter Baumgartner.
