Maag Group experiencing
period of high innovation
By Jim Johnson
Plastics News Staff
The number of new or improved
products being introduced
at the K Show by Maag
Group is borderline staggering.
Pumps and fi ltration systems,
pelletizing
equipment,
and
pulverizing
recycling systems
and digitalization, Maag is a diverse
company that has grown
signifi cantly over the past decade
or so thanks to a series of
acquisitions.
It is these deals, now that they
have become integrated into
one larger organization, that are
now bearing fruit in a period of
high innovation for the company,
said Alaaddin Aydin, vice
president of Maag Germany.
Maag is calling the rather
large A2 booth in one corner of
Hall 9 home during the K show,
but all of that space is needed to
exhibit many pieces of new technology
the company is showing
off. Aydin estimates there are a
dozen examples of new equipment
on display.
" We want to be better than
the competition. We want to be
always one step ahead. That's
one driver. And we want grow, "
he said during an interview on
the show floor. " We want to provide
solutions and be the preferred
partner. That's basically
what's driving us. We want to be
the go-to company, not one of
the many companies that provide
something.
" I believe in the competitive
environment that everyone is
in, not just Maag, you need to be
innovative, otherwise you don't
have the right to exist anymore, "
Aydin said. " It's easy to copy
something. We want really the
right to exist. You have to add
something different than everybody
else. "
Maag, thanks to acquisition
and internal growth, has quadrupled
in size during the past
decade or so. That means the
company has built a wide portfolio
of equipment for the plastics
processing market. And
the combined operations have
lead to a spike in innovation as
employees from the different
companies have come together
to share ideas, the vice president
said.
" Basically our cycle is every
three years at the K Show, we
show the next generation of
machines. Next improvements,
if it's effi ciency, if it's more
throughput, footprint reduction
or something that you couldn't
do before, " Aydin explained.
Sustainability is a key component
in today's market for
most companies, and Maag is
no exception. But sustainability
can touch on many different
aspects and not just recycling.
" It's all about sustainability. But
it also is about being competitive, "
he said.
" We're looking at the entire
production value chain and
we're thinking about our customers
and what would make
them better, not just the Maag
machine with the technical detail
features. The question is
what is the value for the customer? "
Aydin said.
Maag believes in sustainable
solutions, he said, " but at the
same time providing a solution
that makes our customers more
competitive. That's our mission. "
" We at Maag believe that
being responsible with the resources
is the most important
thing. So Energy effi ciency, resource
effi ciency, waste reduction,
and also making sure that
the recycled content in the new
products is as high as possible, "
Aydin said.
