Since the beginning of 2023, construction work at Altonaer Wellpappenfabrik, the first plant of the Panther Group, in Tornesch near Hamburg has been in full swing. A new additional production and storage hall is currently being built on the property.
Completion should be in August and the first new converting machines will be delivered in September. Two more folder gluers using the latest technologies with computer-controlled packing and pallet technology will be installed and integrated into a new hall of a space of 6,000 sqm.
Last year, the Panther Group acquired a neighbouring property of around 25,000 sqm, which was developed with a high-bay warehouse, service areas and several office buildings. A building was demolished here to create more space for storage and transport logistics. In 2024, further construction measures are to be initiated on the new company premises in order to create continuous improvements regarding sustainability. In particular, this saves on transport and consequently reduces CO2 emissions.
