Syntegon building on stable business performance
The process and packaging technology specialist Syntegon, formerly Bosch Packaging Technology, reported stable business performance in 2019. Sales increased to 1.33 billion euros (2018: 1.28 billion euros), and new orders also rose slightly. In the wake of the coronavirus crisis, the systems supplier to the pharmaceutical and food industries is seeing increased demand in its services business. Since interpack – the largest trade show in the industry that was originally scheduled for May – has now been postponed until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Syntegon is presenting its latest process and packaging technology at a virtual trade show from today until May 13. In this context, a special focus is on intelligent and sustainable technologies for the pharmaceutical and food industries. Following the introduction of the Syntegon corporate brand at the beginning of the year, the company is also unveiling its new product design for the first time at the event.

Visitors to the virtual event can also experience continuous production from powders to the finished capsule with the specially developed X-key principle. In addition, the new "Automated Process Development" (APD) tool automatically calculates optimal parameters for capsule filling processes in very short times.
Producing and processing liquid pharmaceuticals
Syntegon Technology provides insights into the future of liquid pharmaceutical processing: from May 7 to 13, customers can discover new developments at the Virtual Show. Based on digital machine presentations, concept studies and pilot projects as well as numerous opportunities to contact the experts, Syntegon shows how pharmaceutical manufacturers can prepare for future trends: new, targeted drugs for small patient groups require greater flexibility in the configuration of filling lines. At the same time, valuable data is generated, which can be used for traceability and increased product safety thanks to new software solutions.

Bosch Packaging Technology is now Syntegon
Syntegon Technology is the new name among the market leaders in the processing and packaging industry. Known as Bosch Packaging Technology until late 2019, the former Bosch division today presented itself as an independent enterprise at the company headquarters in Waiblingen (Germany). Syntegon Technology’s business focus is on intelligent and sustainable technologies for the pharmaceutical and food industries. Extending the service range is a priority for the company. Syntegon Technology employs 6,100 people at more than 30 locations worldwide. It posted 1.3 billion euros in sales in 2019. Bosch disclosed its plans to sell the packaging machinery division to a newly incorporated entity managed by CVC Capital Partners, a leading private equity and investment advisory firm, in July 2019. The transaction was completed according to plan, with the company gaining full independence at the turn of the year.
