Markus Hoffmann joined LEONHARD KURZ in 1992 as a mechanical engineer in the Plastics division and assumed subsequently several product management positions. He has been appointed Member of the Board in 2006 with responsibility for the Global Sales Organisation. In 2017, he became Head of the Print & Packaging department as well as the Mechanical Engineering division at KURZ.
The same year, Markus Hoffmann and a collegue started exploring the recyclability of used PET film. The research which at the time was basically being considered Hoffmann's hobby, is meanwhile being supported by the entire Board, the company owners and a strongly growing team.
