Südpack to expand production plant in Poland

German packaging company Südpack has broken ground on an expansion project for its production plant in Klobuck, Poland.

A new complex is being built at the site of a company Südpack acquired in 2015, Bahpol. Following an ‘extensive investment’, production at the new facility is scheduled to start by the end of 2021.

“Our plans include a new flexo printing as well as a laminating and slitting machine, meaning that our production will be not only very efficient but also state-of-the-art,” said plant manager, Achim Herter.

Bahpol primarily specialises in flexo print and the expansion of the Klobuck plant is part of Südpack’s efforts to grow its capabilities in the print sector.

Südpack managing director, Tharcisse Carl, said: “Due to the constantly growing demand for our packaging solutions, expansion of the production capacities at this site is an important strategic step for us.

“At the same time, this forms the basis for serving the Eastern European market locally and responsively and enables systematic development of the region.”

Earlier this month, Südpack announced that it had formed a joint venture with Indian packaging manufacturer Kamakshi Flexiprints, as it seeks to accelerate its growth internationally.
