COVERIS FLEXIBLES AUSTRIA GmbH
Dr. Jan-Torsten Vollmer was born on July 16, 1966 and grew up in East Frisia. He studied chemistry in Göttingen, where he also received the PhD in 1995 in physical chemistry.
In 1997, in a phase in which no chemists were needed, he made a detour through the Ruhr area to the Allgäu into the world of the flexible packaging industry.
For three and a half years he started developing at 4P packaging (today Huhtamaki Ronsberg). This was followed by 4 years as Technical Market Manager (application engineer) and Key Region Manager (NAFTA) for paste PVC at Vinnolit / Burghausen.
After 2 years of sales at Huhtamaki Ronsberg, in 2006 the path led him back to development / application technology at Unterland Flexible Packaging (now Coveris Kufstein), where Head of RD&A followed after initial laminating film application engineering (CPP / PE). In November 2016, he took over the function of BU Extrusion Manager at the former Coveris BU-Food & Consumer EMEA, where he has been dealing with extrusion topics (raw materials / recipes / process) at the Coveris extrusion sites. He is back at Kufstein as Head of R&D and QM in 2019.
