Palm starts work on new site for Wellpappe Alzenau

For The Palm Group‘s Wellpappe Alzenau, ground surveys are currently taking place for the construction of a new corrugated board plant in the industrial area of Alzenau-Nord. This is the first step of the project, which at the same time involves an upgrading of the existing site for the inner city of Alzenau.

The new site of Wellpappe Alzenau is located on the edge of the industrial area Alzenau-Nord. Exploratory drilling is currently underway, which is necessary for the preparation of a building ground report. 

The new building will free up a large area at the old site in the centre of Alzenau for attractive development opportunities. The location is ideal for numerous flats or facilities to be built within walking distance of Alzenau’s city centre. This will save residents a lot of traffic. In addition, the area surrounding the site with its beautiful location south of the river Kahl and the adjacent park is both quiet and attractive.

Another big advantage of the newly located building will be the reduced delivery traffic in the urban area. This will benefit the local school and kindergarten in Edith-Stein-Strasse.  In addition to a quieter environment, safety aspects will also be improved, such as the entrance and exit at the bus stop for school children.

The new plant will be located in the northern part of the industrial area, so that all delivery traffic will be routed directly via the 2305 state road onto the motorway and thus completely shifted away from the town.

The 250 employees of the corrugated plants in Alzenau and Hasselroth-Gondsroth will in future be working at one site and will be able to reach the new plant via the industrial area or the state road, so that there will be no additional commuting traffic in the town centre. Almost 40 % of the employees live in the city’s district and can still reach their workplace on foot or by bicycle, helping the burden on the environment and the city. The employees of Wellpappe Alzenau are pleased that the project has now begun and that their jobs are secured in the long term.
