ALPLA estab­lishes new Asia-Pacific region

Reor­ga­ni­sa­tion enables bund­ling of com­pe­tences and resources

Hard, 19 November 2021 – The ALPLA Group, the global pack­a­ging solu­tions and recy­cling spe­cia­list, has announced that it is streng­thening its foot­print in Asia. On 1 January 2022, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) head office in Sin­ga­pore will go live, with a new region being created from a merger of the former regions North East Asia and South East Asia. It includes cur­rent ope­ra­tions in China, Thai­land, Vietnam and the Philippines.

The APAC region will be managed by Roland Wallner, curr­ently ALPLA Mana­ging Director North East Asia. With 2,750 employees, ALPLA APAC is well situated to develop the pack­a­ging of tomorrow for the Asian market. Along­side exten­ding the reach of Alpla’s industry-leading moul­ding tech­no­logy, a strong focus lies on the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of cir­cular eco­nomy acti­vi­ties in the region.

ALPLA CEO Philipp Lehner states: ‘We are con­vinced that estab­li­shing this new regional orga­ni­sa­tion is the right step to sup­port our ambi­tions in the region. It will espe­ci­ally enable us to develop market-leading pro­ducts and ser­vices for our gro­wing cus­tomer base in Asia.’

Roland Wallner, desi­gnated ALPLA Mana­ging Director Region APAC, adds: ‘With this step we are bund­ling our exten­sive com­pe­tences and resources in dif­fe­rent mar­kets of the region and alig­ning them in terms of stra­tegic deve­lo­p­ment, cus­tomer ser­vice, sales and purchasing.’
