We are one of the world’s leading suppliers of substrate processing, printing and converting equipment and services for the label, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated board industries. Founded in 1890 by Joseph Bobst in Lausanne, Switzerland, BOBST has a presence in more than 50 countries, runs 19 production facilities in 11 countries and employs more than 5 800 people around the world.
We shape the future by developing new business models. We anticipate the transformation of the packaging world by expanding our technology reach. Across labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated board, we gain insights to sustainably support our customers to answer the current and future consumer needs – and to respond to the challenges of brand owners, retailers and e-tailers across a flexible and agile workflow.
Across the whole production workflow, more fact-based and timely decisions will be made. At BOBST we have a vision for the future where the entire packaging production line will be connected. Brand Owners, converters, toolmakers, packers, and retailers will all be part of a seamless supply chain, accessing data across the entire workflow. All the machines and tooling will "talk" to each other, seamlessly transmitting data through a cloud-based platform orchestrating the entire production process with quality control systems.
At the heart of this vision is BOBST Connect, an open architecture cloud-based platform delivering solutions for pre-press, production, process optimization, maintenance and market access. It ensures an efficient dataflow between digital and physical worlds. It will orchestrate the entire production process from the client’s PDF to the finished product.
