Kissel+Wolf Australia is ramping up its sustainability efforts, with the company currently in the process of transitioning its fleet to electric and hybrid models.

Jamie Weller, MD of Kissel+Wolf Australia, told ProPack the move aligns with the company’s commitment to sustainability and forms part of its broader sustainability roadmap for 2024.  

Kissel+Wolf has undertaken several key commitments, including initiatives to minimise waste, optimise energy consumption, reduce machinery and chemical emissions, and implement eco-friendly practices throughout its operations.

In addition to the new fleet, Weller said the company is “actively exploring new strategies and technology to enhance our eco-friendly practices and contribute positively to the environment throughout the textile and packaging sectors”.

Beyond sustainability, Kissel+Wolf’s main priorities for 2024 will encompass innovation in technology, furthering its customer-centric approach, and expanding its service offerings, with Weller, who took up the role as MD in September 2023, noting there are also plans to expand the Kissel+Wolf team.

“Specific roles and service categories are currently under consideration, and we are excited about the prospect of welcoming new talent to our growing family,” said Weller.

“We are enthusiastic about the journey ahead and remain committed to delivering unparalleled solutions to our valued clients. Stay tuned for more exciting updates as we continue to evolve and make strides in the print industry.”

In December, Kissel + Wolf announced the appointment of industry veteran Bruce Caldwell as the new sales manager ANZ for corrugated packaging – sign and display.

Speaking to ProPack, Caldwell said his focus remains on helping customers find the best solutions for their digital print requirements.

“My role and responsibility is to ensure any equipment investment meets a customer’s goals, needs and expectations, particularly around cost of ownership and ultimately a return on their investment,” Caldwell said.

“Our portfolio offering is extremely impressive. It provides a wide variety of press options for small, medium, or large print providers. Whether their needs are UV or water-based, manual, or automated, hybrid or dedicated there is a tailored solution available. Multi or single pass, widths from 1.5 to 5.0 metres with full local service and support means we can provide security, flexibility, and a future technology roadmap all from the one company.”
