Peter Lechner is now the new CEO at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica (Villavesco, Italy). As planned, he takes over from Christoph Müller. Müller moves to the company's supervisory board as chairman. "Peter Lechner has many years of experience in the field of flexible packaging. He will continue on the positive path of Flexotecnica and achieve our ambitious goals," said Christoph Müller, Flexotecnica supervisory board chairman and member of the executive board at Koenig & Bauer. Peter Lechner previously held leading positions at companies in Germany, the USA and the Czech Republic.
In the coming years Flexotecnica commented that the company will focus on making the best possible use of Koenig & Bauer's strong service and sales network and expanding its flexible packaging activities. The cooperation between the various business units at Koenig & Bauer has already proved its worth. Peter Lechner, the new CEO at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica commented, saying that: "Our order books are full. This year a raft of presses we have sold will go into operation worldwide. Especially in the field of flexible packaging, our Evo series is in great demand." 

Flexotecnica reports it has improved the technological level of its presses over the past 18 months and now its existing product portfolio is expected to be expanded. A new press is to be introduced to the market by the end of this year. "I think we have a very strong team at Flexotecnica. The goal is, of course, to use these prerequisites in order to be able to implement the planned growth in the market," said Lechner.
