March 1st, 2018: Hassia-Redatron helps the youth hostel Waldfrieden in Butzbach again with a donation. The aim of the donation is to enable the purchase of a new play surface and mats for the children of the home.
The Kinder- und Jugendhilfezentrum Waldfrieden offers young people between the ages of six and 21 years of reliable everyday structures and relationships based on trust. In four housing groups, a total of 36 children and young people find a protected environment. They have particularly close contact with the supervisors, who coordinate and accompany all educational activities such as leisure activities or cooperation with the school.
The show was well attended and Circle Packaging’s booth position certainly helped as many people stopped by and inquired about the Si 500 machine. These were very good visitors and their questions were mostly technical in nature with specific projects that they were thinking about. The Hassia-Redatron machine made a good impression as we were filling pouches with liquid, demonstrating the ease with which the machine can start and stop and still produce good product.
From 6 to 9 November 2016, Hassia-Redatron, together with its partners Campbell Wrapper Corp., Circle Packaging and Parson-Eagle Packaging Systems, took part in the Pack Expo. This trade fair, which is extremely important for the American market, took place in Chicago this year.
Managing Director Andreas Hollmann draws the following positive conclusion: “Keen interest was shown in our six-lane Flexibag Si 500 exhibit, used for packaging liquid products. In addition to making several new contacts, we were also able to develop existing projects in greater depth. The number and quality of discussions were very high.”

Once again, Hassia-Redatron took part in the Gulfood Manufacturing trade fair in Dubai. This trade fair, which took place this year from 2 to 9 November, represents an important fulcrum for business in the Middle East. Area Sales Manager Marcus Brauer is satisfied with how the trade fair went: “We were able to make several new and promising contacts. In addition, we were able to firm up several projects that already existed before the trade fair. We will be sure to take part in the trade fair again next year.”
Butzbach, 7 October 2016 – Andreas Hollmann has been an additional managing director, together with Hans Werner Kiedrowski, at HASSIA-REDATRON GmbH since 1 October 2016. Since Hans Werner Kiedrowski is reaching retirement age, he will be stepping down in the spring of next year. Following this, Andreas Hollmann will manage the company as sole managing director.
Andreas Hollmann (right) is 49 years old and is a qualified (Dipl.-Ing.) mechanical engineer.
After his degree course and initial professional experience as a sales engineer, he took on many roles in what was then the IWKA group, including between 2003 and 2005 as sales manager at HASSIA- REDATRON, which belonged to the IWKA group. He then took on various management tasks in medium-sized mechanical engineering firms, all in the sector of packaging machinery. From 2006 to 2011, he was managing director at Hastamat Verpackungstechnik GmbH. He has diverse and extensive management experience in this industry, including at international level, and besides English, also speaks Italian and French.
Andreas Hollmann: “I’m looking forward to the task of furthering the long-term development of HASSIA-REDATRON GmbH, which was helped out of a difficult initial situation and successfully stabilised by Hans Werner Kiedrowski and the shareholders. From my earlier work at HASSIA- REDATRON, and as a long-term market competitor of the company, I know the company’s potential, which derives primarily from immense expertise, a long-term customer base and a highly qualified and motivated workforce, which offers the best conditions on which to base a successful future.“
Hans Werner Kiedrowski, who will be selling his shares in the company to the other shareholders in the course of his retirement: “It is always with mixed feelings, of course, that you look towards stepping down from operational management. It has been a great pleasure to contribute to the exciting task of shaping HASSIA-REDATRON over the past few years. Now it is time to prepare my successor for taking over the reins, and I am looking forward very much to working with him, especially since I have known Andreas Hollmann well for a long time. After I have retired next year, I will always continue to maintain a friendly relationship with the company.“
Valentin Reisgen, Managing Partner of Kai Capital Management: “I would like to join with John Dykema, our co-partner since taking over HASSIA-REDATRON in 2010, in thanking Hans Werner Kiedrowski for the successful and always pleasant cooperation during the last few years. After he has handed-over fully to Andreas Hollmann next year, he will be able to look back on a stage in his professional career where he was able to set a company up on a new basis from a very difficult situation and lead it into a stable position that continues to promise future success. We look forward to working with two expert managing directors during the coming months and are convinced that in Andreas Hollmann we have found the right person in both professional and personal terms for the long-term future.“
