Saica Pack is the corrugated paper pack containers division of the Saica Pack Group.
Designed for long-term business growth, the plan will see investment of over €250m in production machinery at 34 European locations, including €60m investment in the UK and Ireland.
Investment will deliver machine upgrades; palletisation improvements; more automation; additional kit; advanced quality control devices and new high speed die cut machinery. It will also delivery new graphic and digital printing abilities.
The investment aims to support Saica Pack customers by means of increased quality, reliability and lower lead-times. The division now operates 14 sites across the UK and Ireland, with over 1,600 employees.
With an annual capacity of almost 2.5 million tons of paper, the Spanish company has almost 9,000 employees across 47 production facilities throughout Europe.
Miguel Angel Martínez Garbaye, Saica Pack’s commercial and marketing director, told Packaging News: “Our investment will increase efficiency and speed to market, helping us to increase flexibility and launch new products.”
