Dunapack Packaging boost its Romanian operations with new corrugated packaging plant
26 October 2017
Dunapack Rambox, Dunapack Packaging’s Romanian operations, has signed an agreement to purchase 11,5 ha land for the setup of a greenfield corrugated packaging plant in the Bucharest area. The existing Sfântu Gheorghe plant receives a major technical update.
The new 22.000 m2 plant in Bolintin, 20km West of Bucharest, will be equipped with a 2,8 m wide Fosber high-speed corrugator as well as several multi-color printing and die-cutting machines to provide high quality shelf ready packaging solutions. The annual production capacity is expected to reach 180 mio m2 per year. The new plant will operate complimentary along with the existing Dunapack Rambox plant in Sfântu Gheorghe.
The latter will increase its production capabilities by receiving a state-of-the-art corrugator upgrade combined with a new high quality printing-, a flatbed-die-cutting- and a new folder-gluing machine. Both plants will reach an annual production capacity of 300 mio. m2.
Alexander Enzenberg, MD of Dunapack Packaging Division, says: “The new greenfield plant near Bucharest is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen Rambox’s strategic market position in Romania. With two plants in the region we are able to supply our customers with high quality packaging in combination with a unique logistics setup.
With the additional corrugated plant, Dunapack Packaging will operate two box plants in Romania. The Division will be represented in 10 countries, with 19 corrugated plants.
