R&D Specialist Consumables Digital Print (m/f/x)

BHS Corrugated

With more than 3,200 employees and its headquarters in Weiherhammer, BHS Corrugated is represented in more than 20 countries across the world. Consistently strong across the entire product and service range as lifecycle partner within the corrugated cardboard industry: from development and production, installation and maintenance, to a variety of innovative service solutions in the areas of corrugating rolls, individual machines, complete corrugators, Industry 4.0 and, soon to come, inline digital printing.


We have been setting standards worldwide with our highly complex corrugators for 60 years. To further strengthen our market dominance, we are now working on the most ambitious development project in the company's history: the integration of high-volume digital printing into the corrugated board manufacturing process.


Just like our corrugators, the dimensions of our inkjet printer are unique - over 50 metres in length and a printing speed of 300 metres per minute on a paper web width of 2.8 metres speak for themselves.

You have ideas - we offer the space to realise them.
