New pallet warehouse for just-in-time delivery in the Netherlands and Belgium

The Schumacher Packaging Group has significantly expanded its production and storage capacities at its Dutch site. To do this, the Breda plant has moved to a new, much larger building. The last machine was relocated to the new plant on 6th December 2017. The new building will triple the production area for the display specialists to 15,000 sqm. At this site, the packaging manufacturer will now also have a brand new pallet warehouse with space for 7500 pallets.

Those Schumacher Packaging customers for whom the Breda plant manufactures displays will benefit from the site expansion in particular. Customers in the Netherlands and Belgium who acquire corrugated and solidboard packaging from Schumacher Packaging plants in Germany will also experience the benefits of just-in-time services as a result of the new pallet warehouse. In addition, a handling service provider that fills packaging, as well as building and equipping displays, will soon set up operations at the new site in Breda, which covers a total area of around 50,000 sqm. For customers, this also means better service, shorter transport distances and faster delivery times.

"By relocating, we will triple our production area and increase our company premises seven-fold," explains Luc Swaenen, Managing Director of Schumacher Packaging & Display. "It is only by taking this step that we can continue on our growth course at the Breda site and further expand our leading position in digital printing. The large pallet warehouse will also provide us and our customers with entirely new logistics options," Swaenen continues. "The Schumacher Packaging Group took over Vinke Display in Breda in 2014 and we have benefited from a great many synergy effects ever since. We are continuing this success story by investing in the subsequent expansion of the Breda site."
