Aboutfilms was founded in January 2005 by Ekkehard Beer. His long-term experience in the plastic and film area stand him in good stead for his new company's activities. His customers benefit from his comprehensive technology and marketing know-how, his sound knowledge of the film market and his contacts with numerous film manufacturers and processors both in Germany and abroad.
The consulting service is especially valuable for:

Machine manufacturers – e.g. assessing the market potential of new film applications and – if necessary-modifying existing machines at reasonable cost so that these new film products can be readily manufactured on them;

• Raw material producers – developing new areas of application for their materials, e.g. for the production of films in the field of food and other high-performance technologies as well as for medical or pharmaceutical applications;

• Processors – developing films from available raw materials using innovative technologies, modified additives and/or additional or subsequent treatment processes in order to improve their functional properties or render them suitable for new applications.

In 1968, after completing his studies in Process Engineering, Dipl.-Ing. Ekkehard Beer began his career with the firm of Kalle, Wiesbaden/Germany, which at that time was still a subsidiary of Hoechst AG. Various positions (synthetic leather, nonwoven, PE films, technical papers, filtration membranes, PP films) in Research, Production, Sales and Marketing were followed by a transfer to the Rigid Film Division (PET and PVC). From 1996 until the end of 2004 he was employed with Ticona GmbH, Kelsterbach/Germany, where he was responsible worldwide for the market development of film and packaging applications for the cycloolefin copolymer Topas.
