ICR: Can you explain the current structure of Haver & Boecker and the extent of its international reach? 

Dr Reinhold Festge (RF): The structure of Haver & Boecker in principle has not changed. The company has two major divisions: the Wire Weaving Division, the oldest part of Haver & Boecker, and the Machinery Division, founded in 1925. The Machinery Division is further divided into two: under the brand name of Haver & Tyler we concentrate all activities in mineral processing. Then, under Haver & Boecker packing technology we concentrate on packing and logistics. All divisions are locally active and we operate subsidiaries all over the world, on every continent.
