OPTIMA - Excellence in packaging technologies

OPTIMA packaging group GmbH with headquarters in Schwaebisch Hall, Germany, teams with its subsidiaries to design and build packaging equipment for pharmaceutical, consumer, nonwoven and life science products - from single standard machines to complete complex turnkey systems. Whether custom solutions or modular machines, functions are systematically tailored to the specific needs of the customers and their industries. Optima packaging technologies are considered leading-edge in many fields worldwide, including filling and packaging of coffee capsules, freeze drying for sterile pharmaceutical liquids and packaging of paper hygiene products. The company's broad expertise also extends into production lines for manufacturing and packaging advanced wound care products.

Customers appreciate the personal, cooperative and flexible working relationship with Optima's subsidiaries.

The company is committed to environmental and social sustainability through positive action. Optima provides various levels of support to a wide range of social and societal projects.

Optima is considered to be a “hidden champion,” a status due in no small part to its highly qualified workforce. All employees have access to an extensive continuing education program to continuously hone their skills and develop professionally. Training the next generation of employees has been a long-standing tradition at the company. More than 170 young people are employed as apprentices at Optima every year.
