Krones to discontinue digital container-decoration business

The Krones Group has chosen to cease its activities in the field of digital container decoration by the end of this year.

Although the group’s subsidiary Dekron GmbH has machines successfully up and running at various customers, this decision is the result of a careful review of business strategy and the current market situation.

Dekron informed its staff, customers, suppliers and business associates accordingly in November. From 2024 onward, all of the service support required for existing lines will be provided by the expert service technicians of Krones AG.

Dekron GmbH has developed and manufactured machines from the DecoType series used for digitally decorating containers made of glass, PET and HDPE since 2018, with the group’s subsidiary KIC Krones supplying the matching UV inks.

Krones has synergized in Dekron its own development activities and the business operations of Till GmbH, in which the company has had a majority holding since 2014.

The subsidiary will be liquidated effective 31 December 2023 and the facility in Kelkheim closed down as part of the phase-out. A reconciliation of interests has already been negotiated with all members of staff.
