BHS Corrugated Maschinen and Highcon Systems have jointly announced a strategic partnership expected to have far-reaching implications for the digitalization of the corrugated packaging market.
BHS Corrugated is the leading provider of solutions for the corrugated industry. BHS Corrugated and Highcon recognized that Highcon’s unique technology is starting to serve an important role in the core market of BHS Corrugated. Highcon’s corrugated packaging and display products have already been placed with market leaders, including Pratt Industries, Schumacher, WestRock and many more, some with multiple installations.
Moreover, BHS Corrugated is convinced that the incorporation of Highcon’s digital die-cutting equipment into the Box Plant 2025 strategy of the German company can well serve the industry’s needs, as it moves towards greater automation and digitalization. Therefore, BHS will support Highcon with customer leads to acquire market potential and access.
“Highcon’s unique solutions can be a very valuable building block in the digitalization and enhanced operational efficiency of the corrugated industry,” said Christian Engel, managing director of BHS Corrugated. “We have been very impressed by Highcon, its leadership and workforce, its technology and solutions and we look forward to working closely to drive a win-win for both our companies and our customers.”
