TeaPak has begun construction of its new Italian headquarters in the Imola industrial zone between Via Gambellara and Via Bicocca.

The packaging firm will use the facility for blending, teabag filling and packing of herbal teas produced under the Yogi Tea brand.

Cefla Engineering Business Unit will serve as the general contractor for the project and hold responsibility for overseeing the construction, design and installation of electrical, mechanical, air treatment, water distribution and special fire-fighting systems.

The site will have a total of 12,000m2 of space, featuring three workspaces for the plant engineering systems, production and office divisions. It will also have an external road network area.

Yogi Tea Group has approved the project, which involves an investment of more than €25m.

TeaPak managing director Andrea Costa said: “We’re proud that the Yogi Tea Group has trusted us by approving a project involving an investment of €25m.

“This key investment will also bring prestige to our territory. The new headquarters will be characterised by high sustainability thanks to the design by Open Project and the construction by Cefla, a solid business well known by our overseas partners that has brought in Cti and Cims as major sub-contractors.

“Only 500m separate us from our new home, but there’s still some way to go. Yet we’ve always been thrilled by challenges and we hope we can meet up again a few months from now to celebrate the operational start-up of our new headquarters.”

The company commenced construction of the plant in March this year, with manufacturing machines expected to be installed by February 2020.

TeaPak has predicted that the facility will be capable of doubling the current production capacity of the company, which exceeded 40 million units last year, containing 578 million teabags. Production will be quadrupled once the new site is fully operational.
