Partnership Mayer - Pöppelmann

Partnership Mayer -  Pöppelmann

Pöppelmann and Mayer start collaboration, aiming to generate innovative ideas within a technology partnership

Objective: Stimulating automation in the gardening industry and providing momentum through new developments
Joining forces is useful when all sides benefit from it.
With this in mind, two heavyweights from the German horticultural industry, Pöppelmann TEKU (Lohne) and Mayer potting machines (Heidenheim), have decided to work together in a technology partnership and develop joint solutions for the professional gardening sector.

Lack of personnel creates a need for automation
The aim of the partnership is to stimulate automation in horticulture and add momentum through new developments. Matthias Lesch (Pöppelmann) and Steven Anderson (Mayer) expect the partnership to bring real innovations that will make work easier for gardeners and will further improve operational efficiency. Due to increasing lack of manpower, gardening production will have to rely more and more on advanced automation of complete processes.

The companies have enjoyed good relations for a long time. After all, it’s important to either partner that the interaction between pots and trays, equipment and peripherals is as smooth as possible, to avoid any disruptions for the gardeners. The technology partnership will bring the cooperation to a new level, ensuring a strong starting point for the creation of real added value for gardeners.

Pöppelmann already had good experiences with similar approaches in the automotive industry and the medical technology sector. “In those sectors, we have been experiencing for years that joint developments by multiple strong partners will create innovative solutions which can quickly be brought to market”, Lesch emphasises. This image of a strong partner also applies to Mayer, a German company with global operations, just like Pöppelmann. “We are very excited that we will now also collaborate more closely with an innovative technology partner in the gardening sector”, says Lesch.

Linking the know-how of potting machines, pots and trays
Both companies want to bring their in-depth knowledge in the various areas of competence into the new partnership to drive new product developments and service offerings. “Combining Mayer’s long-time experience in potting machine development and Pöppelmann’s expertise in developing high-quality plant pots and trays offers immense potential for synergy and innovation”, stresses Anderson. “For 50 years now, we have been proving again and again that we’re setting technical standards with our Mayer potting machines. And that path will now be reinforced.”
Mayer and Pöppelmann stress the fact that their technology partnership is not an exclusive one and has nothing to do with marketing their products. Both companies will continue to work with a multitude of other partners, as they successfully have before.

“The fact that such completely different companies work together is unique in the German market”, says Anderson, explaining the scale of the undertaking. “I’m looking forward to the first results which we will soon be presenting to the world”, adds Lesch. “I am sure that we will be able to offer the horticultural industry very interesting innovative solutions, both at home and abroad.”
