More than one year ago we started an ambitious plan to increase our capacity by 50 % in 3 years’ time.
So, what has been done so far?
There have been significant delays, but we can proudly show a new printing line W&H NOVOFLEX running in our production hall. With a printing width of 1650 mm and a fully automatic reel handling system (read robot) at the back, it is probably the best wide web printing line in more than a 500 km radius.
In the new production hall, one blown film extruder line is finally running and the second one is still missing some parts. The lines are optimized to produce LDPE film for packaging. The big one for shrink and stretch hoods and the small one for FFS (form fill seal) tubular film and shrink films.
We have a new line for recycling polyethylene industrial waste. A workhorse with a capacity of 800 kg/h.
We have not forgotten the paper section. In the last two months, we have successfully installed three new paper bag machines. We can now offer 18×8 size paper bags and we finally have free capacity.
What is next?
Due to the energy crisis this year we plan to install a solar energy plant, use hot waste air to dry ink in printing lines, and raise the quality of our electrical energy by installing active filters. We will also try to impress our partners with our new central office building in our new location.
