Gissler & Pass GmbH has begun construction on the expansion of its plant at the Rodenberg site, Germany. The new building will add 11,000 m2 to the usable area at the Rodenberg plant. Besides a new high-quality 5-color flexo inline machine and an additional flatbed die cutter, the entire plant will be equipped with the latest conveying technology, as VR Verpackungs-Rundschau reported.
This will ensure fully-automated, efficient operations both in the pre- and post-press areas, helping the company to strengthen the plant as a center of competency for just-in-time production of high-quality packaging and displays imprinted in multiple colors using offset and flexo printers.
Thomas Gissler-Weber, the company's Managing Director, explains, "The total investment volume for the Rodenberg plant is about Euro 15 million. The construction project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2015."
In parallel with the expansion in Rodenberg, the Jülich site will also have a large-format flatbed die cutter installed and see investments into the automation of operations. The Managing Director commented the decision in favor of this investment as follows, "The production portfolio, machinery and equipment will then be similar at the Jülich and Rodenberg sites. By having these two equivalent production plants for packaging that is imprinted using flexo and offset processes, we are creating additional production reliability for our customers."
