Sustainability at SOMIC


Is it possible to combine packaging engineering and sustainability? We think: Yes, it is!


Sustainable practices are not an empty promise for SOMIC. As a fundamental part of the company DNA, we have been paying attention to a balance in terms of sustainability for decades. This includes ecological, economic and also social aspects.

Ecology

Our machines score with our technical concept. This is what SOMIC machines are known for: maximum performance on the smallest footprint. In addition, our packaging machines convince with reliable multi-format capability, minimised noise emissions and the lowest wear and spare parts requirements.


Economy

Sustainable action is also based on lasting and respectful cooperation between the company, its employees, customers and suppliers. We source many of our assemblies and components from the immediate area around our company location in Amerang in the Bavarian Chiemgau region. SOMIC "Made in Bavaria".


Social

As a family foundation, SOMIC takes its responsibility as a mid-sized employer in the region very seriously. Many young people are offered the opportunity to learn a solid apprenticeship and then work in a safe and interesting working environment.

Sustainability - a practiced tradition at SOMIC

CEO Patrick Bonetsmüller is the second generation to run the family business. It goes without saying that SOMIC cultivates long-term relationships with employees, suppliers and customers based on partnership. This ensures appreciation, reliability and constant success on the market - and forms a good and sustainable foundation. The passion for high-tech and absolute perfection is what distinguishes and drives our engineers. However, our focus is always on people.

Regionality as a component of sustainable action

Our suppliers are located in the area directly surrounding our company site. This ensures a fast and secure supply of the necessary parts and guarantees consistently high quality. Short transport routes and the use of sustainable transport solutions minimise our own ecological footprint. Likewise, a binding supplier and value code forms the basis for all supplier relationships.

Durability and resource conservation

Another element of the sustainability concept is the long service life of our machines. For instance, a later adaptation to new products or formats is planned from the very beginning. Programming new format programmes via remote control is fast and saves travel costs as well as many kilometres. Furthermore, new format parts can also be produced - even for machines from the 1990s.

In all SOMIC machine concepts, consumption data is taken into account from the very beginning. Resource-saving use of operating materials means savings for our customers in the respective consumption units and therefore also in the ongoing operating costs.

Sustainable action and eco-efficient concepts pay off for everyone - that is our firm opinion.
