Perfect Partners: Kosme and Krones
Kosme has belonged to Krones for ten years now. The Italian subsidiary has been fully integrated into the product and service portfolio of the parent company in Neutraubling. Its core business is the development and production of complete filling and packaging lines for the beverage industry. Kosme concentrates here on the low to medium output range in the still wine, sparkling wine, spirits, fruit juice, water and beer sectors. The firm can draw upon long decades of expertise for machines in the lower output range, and can be proud of an enviable reputation in specific segments of the market.
Kosme’s product line thus complements to optimum effect Krones’ own capability portfolio and customer reach in the medium to maximum output segment. In some cases, the parent and the subsidiary also combine the machines with tried-and-tested products: in many of its filler models, for example, Kosme installs the field-proven Mecafill VKP valves from Krones. In terms of after-sales service, particularly, Kosme can offer precisely the same capabilities as Krones, with minimised response times and spare parts delivery times. Kosme itself is nowadays represented on all five continents with subsidiaries and dealer networks.
