Direct start in the top league

KHS is a global manufacturer of filling and packaging systems. With around 5,000 employees and KHS sites in over 40 countries we play a leading role in the industry. We always focus on quality, customer orientation, sustainability and reliability – and have done for over 150 years.

In order to ensure our success in the future, too, we need first-class employees – and we also have plenty to offer them.

A number of world records

As an industry leader we set new standards for many technical systems and often break records in the process. For example, we have developed what is currently the lightest 0.5-liter PET screw-top bottle for carbonated beverages in the world, weighing in at just 9.9 grams, and have one of the world’s most powerful can fillers with a capacity of up to 132,000 cans per hour.

Miraculously durable

KHS machines are famous for their long service lives. This of course lies in the quality of our plant engineering but also in our good maintenance service and the future viability built into our lines and machines right from the start. All of this means that across the world not only are there many relatively new KHS machines in operation but also systems which have been up and running for several decades. And this, too, makes us proud.

Digital pioneer

Our aim is to ensure that our customers can exploit all the benefits of digital advance. Here, the digitalization of system solutions plays a major role – from 3D line design through IT systems for the production process to intelligent (remote) maintenance concepts. Many sections of our own (production) processes are now also digitalized and we work with cutting-edge procedures – whether in the manufacture of parts, in assembly or in the virtual commissioning of machines.

Sustainability champion

Sustainability champion

We attach especially great importance to the development of sustainable systems and solutions and to environmentally-friendly production. Many of our technologies are thus particularly kind to the climate – and gentle on the use of energy and raw materials. Moreover, our adhesive Nature MultiPack™ system even holds beverage containers together without the need for any plastic film whatsoever.

Numerous certifications and awards also illustrate that our drive for greater sustainability is an established practice at KHS.
