Mayr-Melnhof Packaging is investing around €35m in Neupack Polska and expanding the site with a focus on e-commerce and microflute corrugated packaging.
MMP Neupack Polska is one of Poland’s leading cartonboard packaging producers and has two plants in Bydgoszcz. The focus is on packaging for food, confectionary, fast food, electronics, detergents, pet food and personal care.
The aim of the investment programme in the company’s machinery and building is to expand and further optimise capacities along the entire processing chain. The plant will be able to offer a more innovative packaging portfolio produced on a state-of-the-art machine park, especially for the growth market of microflute.
Following the installation of a new printing machine at the Równa facility in the spring of 2021, work on expanding the production facility in Petersona is now also progressing rapidly. The addition of a new hall with an area of around 14,000 sqm will be completed by October 2021. This will include a third laminator, a die-cutter and a state-of-the-art eight colour printing machine.
“Especially in the segments of beverage packaging, toys and continuously growing online retailing, it is important to be competitive and focused on the future, and to keep quality consistently high,” says Michal Thomas, Managing Director MMP Neupack Polska. “This programme for the future should strengthen our market position at our location in Poland.”
The investment programme will be completed by the first quarter of 2022.
