World Corrugated Awards 2021: Klingele Paper and Packaging Group returns aims to defend title!

6 Mar. 2020

Winning the Corrugated World Award means that the nominee created an outstanding product or technology, which is worth of international recognition. During the last edition of the World Corrugated Awards in 2019, more than 30.000 industry professionals took part in selecting the stars of the industry that then were announced during a Gala Dinner Ceremony in front of more than 500 guests.
