Actega DS invests in site expansion
The site’s production and storage space will increase by 8,000 square meters, the manufacturing capacity will grow by 50 percent, and the research and development capacities will triple. Construction work is slated to begin in the spring of 2018.
Introduction of new technologies
“We are extending our production, storage, research and development capacities in order expand our site as an innovation center,” says Wilfried Lassek, CEO of Actega DS. Lassek adds: “As a result, we are pushing ahead the introduction of new technologies in order to continue to develop application-oriented solutions for closures and packaging for the food and beverage industry. In addition, we are enhancing our offer of materials and technologies for products in the medical technology and consumer good sectors.”
It is necessary to expand the site to meet the growing demand for special solutions. For example, thanks to a new PVC-free sealant thousands of tons of steel can be saved each year in crown cork manufacture. With the plasticiser-free sealing compound for metal vacuum closures, marketed under the brand name “Provalin”, the company has introduced a further technology to the food and beverage market. In the meantime, Actega DS has also developed a PVC-free sealant solution for wine and champagne closures under the brand name “Vintellox”.
