Dunapack Rambox, Dunapack Packaging’s Romanian operations, has signed an agreement to purchase 11.5 ha of land for the development of a greenfield corrugated packaging plant in the Bucharest area. The existing Sfântu Gheorghe plant will also receive a major technical update.
The new 22,000 sqm plant in Bolintin, 20km west of Bucharest, will be equipped with a 2.8m wide Fosber high-speed corrugator, as well as several multi-colour printing and die-cutting machines to provide high quality shelf ready packaging solutions. The annual production capacity is expected to reach 180 million sqm per year. The new plant will operate alongside the existing Dunapack Rambox plant in Sfântu Gheorghe.
The latter will increase its production capabilities thanks to a state-of-the-art corrugator upgrade, combined with a new high quality printing machine, a flatbed die-cutter and a new folder-gluer. Both plants will reach an annual production capacity of 300 million sqm.
Alexander Enzenberg, Managing Director of Dunapack Packaging Division, says, “The new greenfield plant near Bucharest is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen Rambox’s strategic market position in Romania. With two plants in the region, we are able to supply our customers with high quality packaging in combination with a strong logistics set up.”
With the additional corrugated plant, Dunapack Packaging will operate two box plants in Romania. The Dunapack Packaging Division is now represented in 10 countries, with 19 corrugated plants.
