In hardly any other industry do emotions have such a great influence on the success of a product as in the food and beverage industry. Products are purchased that pick up on consumer trends – in terms of taste, but also visually. Essential factors are health and safety, nutrition and well-being, lifestyle and quality of life. They shape both the product and its packaging.
The market for food packaging is under great pressure to innovate. Consumers are looking for products that they like and like. However, it is also crucial to buy whether the packaging is safe and environmentally friendly. For food producers, the design of packaging is becoming one of the central challenges. New packaging material in conjunction with digital printing techniques will create a new generation of products. Interactive packaging offers a wealth of product information directly from the shelf and offers a new, emotionally rich shopping experience.
GUTOM GmbH & Co. KG is a company that offers cutting-edge solutions for the food industry in packaging technology, filling and process control. The comprehensive portfolio meets all the machine requirements of a food packaging line – regardless of whether the packaging is made of paper, cardboard, plastic, glass or metal, whether the product is fresh or preserved and whether it is snacks, biscuits or soups. The development of associated packaging concepts is one of the core tasks and, if it is to be a pre-containing packaging, e.g. made of cardboard, can also be produced by GUTOM.
Since reliability and the highest quality are important in mechanical engineering and the production of sustainable packaging materials, we have deliberately opted for the development and production site in Büdelsdorf. Development, mechanical engineering, production and technical support come from a single source. And from one place: our location here in the real north.
The connection to Schleswig-Holstein, the people and to our economic partners strengthens us in our philosophy of continuing to support Schleswig-Holstein as a business location.

Since 2019, the company Metalquimia from Spain has also been part of the GUTOM portfolio. The expertise in process technology has thus been expanded and is very popular in the German, Austrian and Swiss markets (D.A.CH.
In February 2020, the production of pre-containing packaging started and enjoys steady growth. Due to the increasing number of customer orders, both in production as well as in machine sales and mechanical engineering, the construction of a new company building consisting of administration, mechanical engineering and production was started in September 2021. Completion and the associated relocation is planned for August 2022.
An ExperienceCenter will be created to show demonstrations of trayseal technology and to better visualize projects. Whether it is the skin or MAP technology or just a simple sealing, GUTOM wants to present all this at the new location. You can also help develop your own cardboard tray and the function around the packaging. The existing machinery in production or in the ExperienceCenter should always invite you to visit.
