Theegarten-Pactec GmbH & Co. KG


Mechanical and plant engineering


Since 2010

We launched a successful LinkedIn campaign for packaging machine manufacturer Theegarten-Pactec to promote their presence at the ProSweets 2022 trade fair. We not only significantly increased visibility and the number of followers, we also succeeded in qualitatively winning over the relevant target groups.

The client

Theegarten-Pactec, with its headquarters in Dresden (Germany), is a manufacturer of packaging machines for confectionery, as well as other food and non-food articles. The company specialises in the development and production of packaging machines for small confectionery products. Its offering encompasses more than twenty different types of packaging with a wide range of services. In addition to individual machines, the company also offers complete packaging lines as a turnkey partner. Thanks to its many years of expertise in the design of continuous high-performance machines, Theegarten-Pactec effectively supports its customers in the planning and implementation of customised solutions – to meet all requests and individual customer requirements.

The assignment

The launch of a LinkedIn campaign for packaging machine manufacturer Theegarten-Pactec to promote the client’s presence at the ProSweets 2022 trade fair.

Strategic goals:

  • Increase Theegarten-Pactec’s visibility to reach potential ProSweets stand visitors
  • Demonstrate expertise in confectionery & snack packaging
  • Provide customers and partners with product and company information

Operational Objectives:

  • Brand awareness: Addressing relevant contacts from the confectionery industry
  • Follower growth: Reaching out to and gaining new followers from the confectionery industry on LinkedIn


  • Consulting
  • LinkedIn content planning
  • LinkedIn ad campaign (flanking)
  • Evaluation: Success analysis and recommendation

LinkedIn content plan with precise objectives and storyline

The cornerstone of the LinkedIn campaign is the client’s presence at the ProSweets 2022 trade fair.

The topic is communicated as often as possible and from different angles, e.g. under the metatopics of Technology, Market & Trends, etc. At the same time, the specific ProSweets thematic posts are interspersed with other relevant topics that highlight Theegarten-Pactec’s expertise. A more appealing form of presentation is achieved thanks to video formats that are more strongly integrated. Moreover, the English posts ideally address the international target group.

205 per cent increase in the number of followers

At the start of the campaign, Theegarten-Pactec had 612 followers on LinkedIn. Three and a half months later, we had increased this number by 205 percent to 1,861 followers.

Generating followers from relevant target groups

The target groups that are especially relevant for Theegarten-Pactec are found in the food manufacturing, beverage and consumer goods sectors. Prior to the beginning of the campaign, the last two target groups were not directly addressed, and the food manufacturing group ranked only 3rd. With the help of the LinkedIn campaign, we succeeded in increasing the quality of followers to such an extent that the food manufacturing segment now ranks 1st among the top industries addressed – followed by the food and beverage industry in 3rd place and the consumer goods sector in 5th place.
