SIG is driving growth by working in partnership with customers to bring food products to consumers around the world in a safe, sustainable and affordable way.
Our Business Model
SIG has been designing packaging machinery since the early 20th century and is ideally placed in a world where demand for packaged food is growing. Our unique sleeve-based filling technology offers our customers unmatched volume and format flexibility, enabling them to meet the rapidly changing demands of consumers. Our superior system reliability ensures that our customers are part of a safe and efficient supply chain.
Partnership with customers
Our filling and packaging technology is at the heart of our customers’ operations. We work in close collaboration to develop innovative product and packaging solutions to meet consumer demands for differentiation, convenience and sustainability. And we help to increase efficiency and transparency through intelligent, automated and fully integrated plants. All this results in customer relationships that span many years or even decades.
Broad geographic base
Over the last 10 years we have increased our exposure to the faster growing regions of the world: the proportion of sales realised outside Europe has increased from 28% in 2009 to 57% in 2019. With our globally integrated footprint and supply chain, we are able to support customers locally and to meet their needs quickly and efficiently.
Our culture is based on the principle that we are all responsible and accountable for results. Our colleagues are encouraged to dream big, set stretched targets, take ownership and to challenge themselves. This enables us to improve every day, to realise growth by winning against the competition and to continue to invest in our business.
