Europe: Coveris spruces cartonboard division with £3M


Coveris has announced a £3 million (US$3.22 million) investment plan for its cartonboard division.

The division, based over three sites in Cambridgeshire, is a supplier of food packaging in the UK and set to benefit from significant investment to transform its operations with increased capacity, improved production efficiencies and modernized facilities.

Coveris’ cartonboard division has commenced a period of investment with site refurbishment, machinery installation, modernization of equipment and an extensive staff training program planned for 2017.

The plan has been announced to achieve streamlined production, enhanced capabilities and better manufacturing processes, reliability and consistency, supporting future growth.

“From site modernization to installation of new machinery and staff training, the investment plan encompasses the whole board business,” says Michael Marshall, operations director of paper division.

“Our immediate focus is that customers see the benefit of our investments with a smooth transition and enhanced operational performance.”

“Long term, these investments demonstrate our commitment to continue as a leading and innovative supplier of board packaging to the food industry.”

Coveris manufactures cartonboard packaging for the food industry with board and lined board formats including sandwich skillets, nested trays, sleeves, cartons and foodservice ranges.

Coveris’ board sites also house CAD and plate making facilities, as well as a creative design center; the latter also planned for refurbishment.
