Mondi has successfully completed the installation of new equipment at its corrugated box production plant in Szczecin, Poland to meet growing demand for e-commerce packaging. The installation of the new machinery also marks further progress in Mondi’s ambition to further digitalise its business by using more advanced analytics and automation to better serve its customers with innovative and sustainable packaging and paper solutions.
The new equipment includes a five-colour Bobst Masterline 2.1 HD and a MuK robot, which will produce sustainable packaging solutions for the growing e-commerce market in north-eastern Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Poland. Mondi’s award winning 100% recyclable SizeMeMailer and Envelope Mailer alongside other packaging solutions will be produced from this site.
Mondi’s expanded range of e-commerce packaging solutions follows the ‘3-e approach’ of being more efficient, economic and easy. Not only do they maximise convenience and the customer experience, they can also reduce the costs of logistics and contribute to greater sustainability by reducing product and material waste.
“This investment in our Szczecin plant has strengthened our e-commerce packaging approach,” said Armand Schoonbrood, COO, Mondi Corrugated Solutions. “With our expanded range of sustainable solutions, like our award winning SizeMeMailer and Envelope Mailer, and greater production capacity, our customers will enjoy more packaging options and faster deliveries. In parallel, the arrival of these new machines will result in reducing our energy consumption as we focus on limiting our carbon footprint in order to contribute to a better world.”
