Feldkirchen/Donau. As of August 16, 2022, Dipl.-Ing Guenther Klammer is responsible for the research and technical developments of Next Generation Recyclingmaschinen GmbH as the new technical manager (CTO). With this reinforcement in the management, the team of plastics recycling machine specialists will ensure the technical progress of products and services also in the future and further expand their position as a technological pioneer.

For the new position at NGR, he brings his profound technical expertise as well as many years of industry experience in plastics recycling. “Implementing innovative and sustainable solutions in plastics recycling is my passion, and I am looking forward to the new tasks at NGR,” says Klammer, who intends to continue driving the Feldkirchen-based mechanical engineering company’s growth course at the highest technical level.

Professionally, the creative tinkerer with management expertise has worked at Cincinnati Milacron, EREMA, and as CEO of MAS Maschinen- und Anlagenbau Schulz GmbH, among others.

“In recent years, NGR has made a steady progress from a start-up to an internationally successful machine builder, not least due to technically innovative products,” explains Josef Hochreiter, CEO of the NEXT GENERATION GROUP.  “But we certainly don’t want to rest on this success. Because the requirements in plastics recycling are becoming more and more complex worldwide. In order to meet precisely these increased requirements and to continue to offer one step ahead solutions, we have once again strengthened our forces.”

The entire NGR management welcomes the personnel reinforcement and is convinced that the company is ideally equipped for future challenges thanks to Guenther Klammer’s technical know-how and experience. With the new appointment, NGR has created ideal conditions to realize its mission “working for a better future” with a top motivated team and to continue developing innovative solutions and highly efficient recycling machines in the future.
