Schur is building Europe’s most modern folding box plant
Schur Pack Germany is currently building Europe’s most modern high-tech folding box facility and is massively investing in a new location. A 28,000 square metres plant is presently being constructed, the likes of which cannot be found anywhere else in Europe to date. Thanks to this investment of almost 70 million euros, Schur would like to extend its competitive edge and sets a clear example for folding boxes "Made in Germany".
The new facility and the associated investment has the purpose of providing a positive and, most importantly, sustainable corporate development for Schur Pack Germany within Europe. With the decision for a new company location and the new buildings and machines, the packaging specialist also sends out a clear signal for the production and business location Germany.
"The outstanding efficiency and the new quality standards that are offered by our plant are simply unique. Most notably, for our customers this means: outstanding quality, highest hygiene standards and shortest delivery times. With this, we come even closer to our customers," says Klaus Madsen, Managing Director at Schur Pack Germany.
Customers and Markets in Focus
To satisfy the growing customer requirements regarding quality and reduced delivery times, a majority of the entire investment goes into new production equipment. "Our new plant has the highest possible degree of automation available on the market. We are particularly proud of our fully-automated high-bay warehouse," says Andreas Lührs, Plant Manager at Schur Pack Germany.
Due to the high investments in state-of-the-art printing and processing machines, the packaging specialist Schur is also extending its portfolio of products. Apart from the printing quality, which is once again increased, innovative finishing technology, like hot and cold foil is now also available for the customers.
In addition to this, AGV’s (Automated Guided Vehicles) ensure efficient flow and production processes. "We completely utilise the possibilities offered by cutting edge intra logistics in the new plant and guarantee optimised work processes for our customers to realize shortest delivery times," explains Jan Bollweg, Operations Manager at Schur Pack Germany. Here, many of the complex intra logistics challenges are solved in cooperation with the affiliated company Schur Packaging Systems AB in Sweden.
The new high-tech plant also sets entirely new standards with regard to energy efficiency. Here, the complete construction is supplied entirely with regenerative sources of energy and no fossil fuels are required in the entire building.
Schur Pack Germany, with its current headquarters in Büchen (Germany) is one of the market leaders for high quality folding boxes of cardboard packaging. With state-of-the-art production technologies, optimised processes and creative individuals, the continually growing demands of numerous renowned customers are satisfied.
