May 07, 2013 - 22:20

BRUSSELS, May 8, 2013 (RISI) -Roba Packaging is progressing with the installation of a new corrugator at its Alpirsbach plant in southwestern Germany.

The equipment is set to come online at the end of May. It will complement the existing corrugator, enabling the firm to produce either single- or double-wall corrugated sheets. Roba did not specify the capacity of the new corrugator.

The Alpirsbach plant will also be fitted with a new Masterflute laminating machine.

"The investment program, which started in September last year, will allow us to laminate printed sheets on single and double wall corrugated material. This is the only equipment in this combination in German speaking countries," a spokesperson at Roba said.

He said that in addition to this project, Roba had installed a new Bahmüller gluing machine with a triple feeder and invested in a new logistic system as well as built a new warehouse for finished goods.
