With his strong focus on innovation and expansion of sales structures, Torsten will contribute to the company’s further growth,” said Marc Strobel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Syntegon.
“Syntegon has made impressive progress as an independent company since its spin-off from Bosch.

Syntegon’s ability to develop customer-specific solutions is unique and its innovative range of products and services already excites customers around the world,” said Türling.
“It has been a great pleasure and an honor to lead Syntegon on its journey to become an independent, leading, and global provider of innovative and sustainable processing and packaging solutions,” said Dr Grosse.
