In a groundbreaking ceremony held 15 July, Südpack marked the official start of the construction of what it describes as a state-of-the-art complex in Klobuck near Czestochowa, Poland.
The new plant is being built at the site of a company Südpack acquired in 2015, Bahpol, which primarily specializes in flexo print.
The expansion was prompted by the ‘constantly growing demand for our packaging solutions’ said Südpack managing director Tharcisse Carl.
"At the same time, this forms the basis for serving the Eastern European market locally and responsively and enables systematic development of the region,” he added.
The plant itself is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, and production is scheduled to start by the end of 2021. The new plant will be equipped with among others, a new flexo printing machine as well as a laminating and slitting machine.
Sufficient space has been planned for the installation of further capacities.
In line with Südpack’s sustainability strategy, the complex will meet all current environmental and energy standards after completion next year.
