Mondi Ansbach steps up customer proposition

Last year, Mondi, the global packaging and paper manufacturer, announced that it would expand its existing heavy-duty corrugated cardboard plant in Ansbach, southern Germany. The “Ansbach 2020” project, an investment worth EUR 30 million (approximately Rs 263 crore), is in its final stages of completion and is said to be meeting its customers’ needs with innovative sustainable packaging solutions.


The plant installed state-of-the-art machinery, including a new corrugator, die-cutting-machine, inline-machine, paper storage, shipping facility, waste processing facility, and intralogistics system. The investment is strengthening the plant’s position as the go-to-expert for innovative and sustainable packaging solutions in the region. Furthermore, the updated machinery results in less energy consumption and reduces the carbon footprint of the plant.

“With this investment we have been able to broaden our sector expertise offering to include not only the automotive sectors but also expand into the construction supply, sports, and leisure industry, delivering quality sustainable packaging goods,” says Markus Skiba, managing director, Mondi Wellpappe Ansbach

The improvements delivered by this investment include increased production capacity, leading to shorter delivery times to customers; broader range of corrugated solutions for more specialized customer uses; and enhanced product quality.

The investment also includes a customer innovation center, which will offer facilities for workshops, product development, optimization, and product presentations. This hub will lead to further innovation and testing of packaging solutions to reduce their enviornmental impact and will mark the project completion in 2021.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
