Spain’s Quadpack (Barcelona; www.quadpack.com) said it has invested around EUR 1 mn to expand decoration and assembly operations at its German plant in Kierspe. Earlier this year the company announced plans to add equipment and floorspace at the facility (see Plasteurope.com of 01.04.2022), which was previously owned by Louvrette (see Plasteurope.com of 02.10.2019). A 900 m² hall was expanded and converted into a decoration centre that opened in October 2022 and employs 36 people.

Already a centre of excellence for PET injection and airless packaging manufacture, the factory now boasts a facility with five decorating lines and 11 assembly machines. It‘s planned to add more machines in the next months, totalling 10 decoration lines and 14 assembly machines, with the added equipment expected to halve lead times for finished plastics packaging.

The facility is part of Quadpack‘s strategic plans to become a leader in decoration in the industry, following the acquisition of Wicklein Kunststoffveredelung in October 2021.

With the new centre, Quadpack said its in-house decoration services in Europe now include silk-screening, hot-stamping, full-cover hot-stamping, pad printing, metallisation, colour matching, digital printing, and laser etching, with new techniques soon to be included.

In the fiscal year to 31 January 2021, Quadpack reported sales of EUR 102 mn. The Spanish group employs nearly 800.
