Constantia Flexibles makes major press investments in Germany

February 16, 2017

The company spent nearly three million euro adding an extra rotogravure-unit as well as a UV flexo press.

Constantia Flexibles Group has invested nearly three million euro in printing technology at its manufacturing site in Wangen im Allgäu, Germany.

An extra rotogravure-unit has been added to an existing UV Flexo printing press dedicated for medium-sized batches serving the dairy industry. It will now be possible to print the bar spacers of dairy lids inline instead of outline in a second working step, as was done in the past.

In addition, a UV-Flexo machine has been added to cater for small batches. This investment will mean the closure of old machines and as a result, the complete elimination of solvent use. Nusser will therefore contribute greatly to improving its own environmental performance through reducing CO2 and fugitive emissions.

The Wangen im Allgäu site is the home to Constantia Nusser GmbH – a leading supplier of high-quality aluminum-based lids for the local dairy industry for more than 90 years. Nusser has about 120 employees and some 70 percent of its sales is generated with customers in southern Germany. The site is ISO 9001:2000, 50001, BRC and FDA-Hygiene certified. Capacity will be gradually ramped up in the coming six months.

“These investments in modern technology help secure the future of our Nusser production plant and underline our clear commitment to provide the best product and highest quality to our customers,” comments Stefan Grote, Executive Vice President of the Food Europe division.
