Packaging manufacturer Mondi has invested €7 million to install new equipment at its paper bag production facility in Nyíregyháza, Hungary.
The investment has paid for the installation of a new ‘state-of-the-art’ paper sack converting machine. Mondi claims that the addition of the new machine will increase the plant’s quality, efficiency and service standards, and increase the production of high-end and sophisticated paper sacks for food purposes.
Mondi’s Nyíregyháza facility produces industrial paper bags for a variety of products such as flour, milk powders and corn starch, and the company claims that the upgraded site will be capable of producing more than 130 million paper sacks annually.
As a result of the investment, the entire layout and set-up of the Nyíregyháza plant was also redesigned, including the storage area, printer area, warehouse, and ink kitchen to increase operational efficiency and safety.
Péter Szabó, managing director, Mondi Bags Hungária, said: “Our goal is to serve our customers’ needs with excellence, so we focused on increasing the plant’s quality and hygiene standard to be able to produce high-end and sophisticated paper sacks for food.
“This investment means we are able to enhance our operational efficiency, as well as offering shorter delivery times to our customers. Our ambition to open this line did not diminish despite the beginning of the health pandemic.
“Working with revised health and safety measures in place, I am very proud of my team’s determination to execute this project and deliver this complex product portfolio.”
