Keiter will follow in the footsteps of Markus Sandhöfner from Strategic Business Development, and take over as the representative for technology suppliers in the executive committee of the OMAC Packaging Workgroup (OPW).

Keiter's new task will be to represent the interest of European end customers, machine and automation manufacturers in the executive committee of the largely US-run OMAC. In the process he will be playing a key role in developing and implementing OMAC guidelines.

The main tasks for members of the OPW executive committee include approving new guidelines and developing strategies for the packaging industry. Additionally, they also define and review OMAC specifications.
