SCUNTHORPE, UK, Aug. 30, 2018 (Press Release) -The Corex division - producer of cardboard tubes - doubles the Polish site's area to support growth and optimise logistics.
The tube producer’s Polish site – situated centrally on the Poznan-Gdansk axis – has just increased its area significantly. By adding an additional building, the total production area has now almost doubled. This additional area gives space for future growth and additional machines. An additional drying unit has now been commissioned. A number of other machines are still planned.
In addition to the growth of the production capacity, logistics have also improved. Thanks to integrated loading bays, trucks can now load faster and more efficiently. Roel Verbinnen, Global Accounts & Marketing Director: “The Polish tube market continues to grow. Foil and paper production provide the largest demand. The expansion in Poland supports this business need."
Annually, Corex produces 150,000 tonnes of cardboard tubes and edge protectors at 14 sites. The tubes can be applied in a large number of sectors such as the foil, paper, textile and steel industries. In addition to tubes and edge protectors for the industrial markets, Corex also has a Consumer Packaging division producing tubes for various consumer markets.
