Kartonagen Schwarzenberg changes name to Schumacher Packaging

July 02, 2010 - 01:21

NIEFERN-OSCHELBRONN, Germany, July 2, 2010 (Press Release) -Kartonagen Schwarzenberg GmbH, located in the small, picturesque village of Schwarzenberg in Saxony, has recently changed its name to Schumacher Packaging GmbH Werk Schwarzenberg.

The company's product line comprises all types of packaging in corrugated and solid paperboard in grey, brown and white for food and non-food use. The Schwarzenberg plant merged with the Schumacher group of companies in 2009, and an extensive investment plan has been set in motion to secure Schwarzenberg's future.

For the current investment phase, the owners have opted to modernize the board machine and extend the "white line" in cooperation with Bellmer. In addition to a new stock preparation system for the white top layer, the scope of supply includes the approach flow and a completely new wet section. Stock distribution will be performed by 10 EQUALCirclerTMcircular distributors, two of which will be equipped with EQUALDiluterTMtechnology to optimise the CD profile using dilution water. In addition, 9 special formers from the EQUALFlowerTMrange will be used to optimize initial sheet formation. An EQUALFlower ProTMwill be integrated, dedicated to the top layer to enhance printability. The press section will feature short draws and large roll diameters to achieve gentle dewatering and ensure a top quality finished product.
