Worldwide: EXCOR: corrosion protection from the packaging

Company founders Knüppel Verpackung have been in the business since 1919 and are one of the leading traders in intelligent industrial packaging. In contrast, the firm NTIC focuses on the industrial use of environmentally friendly technologies for products  and services. True to this background, for over 20 years EXCOR has concentrated on environmentally friendly, value-oriented, technology-driven packaging solutions founded on international cooperation. EXCOR is an integral part of an internationally active joint venture system with research and development centres in Europe, Asia and America.

The company's sales territory is growing, and alongside Germany now includes Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Hungary, South Africa and Mexico. Meanwhile, joint venture partner firms in virtually every industrialised country provide worldwide support.
