Siegwerk’s Center of Excellence in France receives facelift

Siegwerk has confirmed the successful completion of modernisation activities at its Annemasse site, the company’s second largest Center of Excellence for packaging inks and coatings in Europe.

At the end of May 2023, employees and local authorities came together to celebrate the reopening of the revamped facility, shining in a bold and modern new look.

“We are happy to finally present our new building design to our employees and partners here in Annemasse,” says Christopher van Laack, Vice President Business Units Paper & Board EMEA and Liquid Food Packaging, Siegwerk. “Next to our headquarters in Germany, Annemasse belongs to our most important sites in Europe. By investing in our locations, we do not only keep our production and laboratory facilities up-to-date in terms of technology and safety, but we also give our buildings a modern look.”

Apart from large-scale modifications to the administration building including the modernisation of offices, meeting rooms and sanitary facilities, the recent renovations in Annemasse also included the renewal of the façade, showcasing the bold Siegwerk branding. The entire renovation project already started in November 2021, but had to be partially paused due to the pandemic.

The Annemasse site is one of 15 Centers of Excellence worldwide that manufacture Siegwerk’s basic inks and coatings in a standardised process. With a production capacity of more than 25,000 tons per year, it accounts for 10% of the Siegwerk group’s annual output. Today, the French site is home for 275 employees and counts as Siegwerk’s European leading location for water-based and inkjet solutions. As a modern technical center, it combines R&D, production and testing capacities under one roof.
