Global label maker and speciality packaging company CCL Industries has officially inaugurated its new sustainable sleeve label hub in Dornbirn, Austria.  

The new 20,000m² facility has been developed via an investment of €50m ($54.17m). 

The opening marks the completion of the company’s transition from its previous location in Hohenems in the country and represents a significant investment in sustainable packaging technology. 

The Dornbirn site is more than double the size of the former site, with nearly 10,000m² allocated to production and an automated warehouse. 

The facility is equipped with intelligent computer-controlled software designed to optimise storage space management and streamline intralogistics operations. 

CCL management team member Günther Birkner said: “The move brings a lot of improvements. Not only is the building state of the art and provides a modern workplace for our employees, but the technology is also state of the art.

“The building has been designed according to modern sustainability aspects and with the long-term goal of further reducing our carbon footprint in production.” 

The facility in Dornbirn, which is already ISO14001 certified, will further serve as a hub for sustainable shrink sleeves, an adhesive-free decoration technology mainly used for bottles and other containers.  

CCL said that these shrink sleeves are applied by heat and conform to a variety of container shapes, acting like a second skin. They are made from floatable low-density polyolefin material, which is said to be at the forefront of sustainable shrink sleeve technology. 

The design of the sleeves allows for easy separation from the primary container during the recycling process, thus supporting material separation and enhancing recycling efficiency. 

The Dornbirn hub adheres to various sustainable practices such as its heating system, which utilises heat recovered from production machinery and compressors, as well as the thermal oxidation system for solvents.  

The company has also installed a central distribution centre to manage the efficient distribution of heating and cooling throughout the facility. 

In December last year, CCL announced plans to permanently close its Innovia business operations in Merelbeke, Belgium.
