Said to be one of Europe's most modern plant, the new facility at the future Business Park A24 location will see an investment of approximately €70m.

Majority of the proposed investment will be invested in production equipments including printing and processing machines, in order to meet the increasing customer demands for quality and reduced delivery times.

Schur Pack Germany plant manager Andreas Lührs said: "Our new plant has the highest possible degree of automation available on the market. We are particularly proud of our fully automated high-bay warehouse."

Schur is using regenerative sources to complete the plant's construction, as well as eliminating the need of using fossil fuels in the entire building.
