People and society
Business success and social responsibility go hand in hand for us. Enthusiasm, appreciation, integrity and responsibility therefore form the foundation of our business activity. They guide us in regard to our employees, the company, our business partners and above all our customers.

Regional social commitment
MULTIVAC packaging solutions are known throughout the entire world. As a company that operates internationally as well as locally, we feel committed to the people of the particular region in which we operate, as well as to our social responsibilities. That is why we are committed regionally, nationally and internationally.
We are often hosts at our main production site in Wolfertschwenden to various public events and organisations. We cultivate our close relationship with the community of Wolfertschwenden and undertake joint projects with it - for example with the local kindergarten and primary schools on the "Knowledge Factory" project. We are also a member of the Allgäu GmbH partnership network, which was set up to strengthen the brand of the Allgäu region. We are actively engaged with the University of Kempten and other educational establishments. And we also support many different initiatives and interesting projects in the areas of culture, sport and other social activities.
