Review: Faller Packaging continues its successful course in 2019
The 2019 financial year was hugely successful for the August Faller Group: turnover reached a new record high of 145 million euros. We achieved around three-quarters of this in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. However, we are also becoming increasingly successful in other regions - for example in Eastern Europe: since the end of the year, a new production site in Debrecen, Hungary, has been added in order to provide even more targeted support to our customers there in the future. Thanks to a sophisticated pandemic plan, we also believe we are well prepared for the current corona crisis.

A few words on the current crisis from Dr Daniel Keesman
We are all feeling the dramatic effects of the pandemic of the novel coronavirus CoVid 19, now reminiscent of Dante Alighieri's Inferno. As Executive Managing Partner of the Faller Packaging Group, it is my duty and responsibility, together with our entire management team, to maintain the health of our employees and contain the further spread of the virus.
This containment is the basis for continuing to supply our customers in the pharmaceutical and medical industries to maintain this essential basic supply for our population. In this context, I would like to thank all our customers, suppliers and service providers who, in close cooperation with us, have ensured that the impact has been minimal so far.
