BOPP film manufacturer Treofan has combined the responsibility for its European plants into a single corporate function.
Treofan said this change makes its European organization even more efficient, and positions it in line with the structure already present in operations in the Americas.
Treofan’s European plants include a location in Neunkirchen Germany, and plants in Battipaglia and Terni, Italy. Its production sites in the Americas are located in the USA and Mexico. The company is headquartered in Raunheim, Germany.
The change has also seen the creation of the chief operations officer (COO) Europe role, which is to be filled by Luigi Martines. Alongside the appointment of Martinese to the new position, a newly created European board includes business unit managers Carolyn Wagner (Packaging and Labels), Nico Schoeman (Tobacco Packaging and Technical Films) and Dr Franz Josef Kruger (Treopore Separators), plus a supply chain manager to be appointed soon.
‘By adapting our European management structure to the model already used in the Americas division with great success, we can now respond even more flexibly and rapidly to customer and market needs,’ commented Treofan CEO Dr Walter Bickel.
