Thinking about tomorrow...
Investing in technology.
That applies, for example, to the location in Teich, 75 km to the west of Vienna. Investments were made here and the technical infrastructure enhanced with an extrusion coating line and slitting machine. The factory is therefore ideally set up for the fast growing Coffee, Dairy and Pet food markets.
Corona Packaging ApS in the Danish town of Ishøj is a first-class manufacturer of die-cut lids for the food industry. The company invested in the latest die-cutting technology, which is already in operation. This new machine is mainly used to produce so-called cover leaves for butter and margarine. These cover leaves are automatically bundled and sleeved, which overall improves the cover leaves quality and performance on the filling lines.
At the Weiden location of Constantia Flexibles, around four million euro are currently being invested in a new 10-color gravure printing press, which should commence production in the second quarter of 2017. This investment will cover the growing demand of the confectionery industry for film-based packaging.
In the past 10 years, the company has invested approximately 60 million euro in the factory, including the opening of a new, ultra-modern research and development center for polymer foils and foil laminates. Aluprint Flexibles Mexico, more precisely in San Luis Potosi in northern Central Mexico, has started work on a new and flexible ROTOMEC printing line and a COMEXI slitter. The first test runs are expected to commence in September, with production to start on January 1, 2017. This new investment will strengthen the area of cold sealing technology for the growing market in Mexico and the US.
