Austria-based Prinzhorn Group’s subsidiary Dunapack Eurobox Polska is planning to set up a second green-field corrugated packaging plant in Lubliniec, Poland.
Planned to be opened across 12ha of land, the proposed plant will feature a 2.8m-wide high-speed corrugator, as well as various multi-colour printing and die-cutting box-machines.
With the new plant, Dunapack Eurobox aims to support its group integration strategy, reduce its environmental footprint as well as improve service and regional coverage.
Dunapack Eurobox Polska packaging division managing director Alexander Enzenberg said: “With increasing complexity in marketing and logistics, packaging solutions face new challenges every day.
“Our customers need innovative and strong packaging suppliers like Dunapack to secure their strong market position for the future.
“Our new plant in Lubliniec will provide another landmark in the dynamic Polish packaging market to support this development.”
The company currently has 18 corrugated plants across the globe and presence in ten countries.
Prinzhorn Group CEO Cord Prinzhorn said: “Following our market entry in Poland in 1999, we are continuously growing.
“Now we need to increase our local presence with an additional plant to keep up with our customers.
“Modern and efficient machinery, combined with first class delivery service, will provide a solid platform to serve existing and new customers.”
The company currently employs 6,000 people in 15 countries and serves the recycling, paper and packaging industry in Europe.
Dunapack Packaging Division recently entered into a deal to buy Turkish packaging producer Camis Ambalaj Sanayi’s corrugated business.
