Global sustainable packaging and paper company Mondi has announced its plans to invest more than €16m ($17.5m) in its Krapkowice plant located in southern Poland.

This strategically located Krapkowice plant specialises in the manufacturing of Mondi’s MailerBAG range to cater to the demand of its customers across Europe.

The company will utilise this investment to install a new production line at the facility that is set to double the overall production capacity of the bags for this year.

This will further allow Mondi to address the increasing demand for sustainable packaging from the e-commerce industry in the region.

Mondi Paper Bags’ MailerBAG director Thierry De-Vleminck said: “Consumers are becoming more concerned about packaging materials, with research showing around 70% willing to pay more for best-fit packaging.

“The growing e-commerce market needs a strong supply of quality packaging that has a real focus on sustainability, which is what we deliver, a bespoke solution for every customer, every time.”

MailerBAG is lightweight, cost-effective, durable, and puncture and tear-resistant. It saves space and is easy to open and close, and is therefore used by consumers to carry their goods.

The bag range is available in various sizes and has good printability to ensure that brand users can clearly communicate their identity and message to consumers.

Bogdan Rozio, Mondi Paper Bags’ regional manager for Central and Eastern and managing director for Poland, said: “We are delighted to be investing further in the e-commerce industry and in our Krapkowice plant.

“It contributes to our MAP2030 commitment to make all our packaging solutions reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025, and allows us to respond to the market demand in this key region.”

Last year, Mondi was chosen to provide its packaging solutions, including the paper-based MailerBAGS range, to fulfil the e-commerce requirements of European fashion company MODIVO.
