Ready for your career adventure?

From a small craft business to the world market leader – that’s Krones’ success story in a nutshell.

As a small company with big ideas, the Bavarian machinery manufacturer quickly evolved into an internationally operating corporation. Today, besides our five facilities in Germany, we already maintain more than 80 branch operations abroad: from Addis Ababa to Zagreb, we’re present wherever our customers need us.

This global network offers plenty of scope for an enormous range of different careers – so why not for Yours?

Krones AG is already employing more than 16 000 people worldwide. That means 16 000 life-stories, each and every one of which makes a distinctive contribution to our corporate success.

In 2019 we will have established a new factory in Debrecen and we are offering exciting opportunities in an international environment.
