About V+E packaging consulting

Packaging is our passion! Since our foundation in 1993, experts for packaging development, packaging rationalisation and engineering have been working together in the V+E team. Through our long and successful work we have established ourselves as a leading and international packaging professional.

Unbiased, independent and uncomplicated consulting on packaging issues is our unique selling point. Due to our external position, we are able to constructively question existing structures. As independent consultants we will find the best possible solution for your company. In doing so, a target-oriented and personal execution is important to us.

No matter in which part of the value chain you are located, we know about the influence of packaging on all areas. Even when considering packaging aspects in detail, we have the entire cycle of your product in mind. No matter whether you are concerned about your packaging or your packaging process, we support you in optimising it.


We have different backgrounds in packaging technology, but we are all packaging specialists. Therefore, we offer you comprehensive, interdisciplinary consulting with a high degree of practical relevance in all packaging topics. You will have a personal contact person throughout the entire project, but will benefit directly from the know-how and commitment of the entire team.
