Rotzinger PharmaPack: History

Logo of Rotzinger PharmaPack.

The roots of Rotzinger PharmaPack go back to the 19th century, when the company Geiger & Hesser was founded in 1861. It is considered the cradle of German packaging machine construction and built the first packaging machine for coffee in 1911. At the same time, the company Höfliger + Karg was founded in 1945 and presented the first capsule filling machine in 1958. The two companies joined in 1970 (Höfliger + Karg) and 1977 (Geiger & Hesser) to form Robert Bosch Apparatebau GmbH, which was founded in 1969 and later became Bosch Packaging Technologies. In 2020, Bosch Packaging Technologies became Syntegon. In 2021, the Rotzinger Group took over Syntegon Cartoning - Track & Trace GmbH and renamed it Rotzinger PharmaPack GmbH.
