Constantia Copenhagen – part of flexible packaging producer Constantia Flexibles – opened its new production site at the end of March 2021. The new plant will triple the company’s capacity and support further growth in the Scandinavian market.

The new site of the company in Ishøj, Denmark, is enabled with a fully automated production process which improves flexibility. In addition, the warehouse is now fully integrated within the site to allow further growth. The fully automated production site of Copenhagen covers a total area of 6,000m², where the flexible packaging producer can integrate more processes and products to expand its business.

Constantia packaging solutions meet the highest level of sustainability

The new location uses a number of robotics technologies and a further increased level of hygiene measures. Furthermore, the packaging solutions produced at the company meet the highest sustainability standards. For example, the more sustainable packaging family Ecolutions. In addition, to meet Constantia Flexibles’ strict demands for sustainable production, the site is entirely powered by green electricity

Pim Vervaat, CEO of Constantia Flexibles, states: “Expanding our consumer business in Europe is a key part of our company’s strategy. It is here where we want to grow further and expand. The investment into Copenhagen and the Scandinavian market is a vital step in this growth journey. With more than eight million euros of investment, we have built a state-of-the-art facility that will serve our customers more efficiently with sustainable die-cut lid products in the dairy market.”

“Moreover, tripling our capacity through the enlargement of the site and the integrated warehouse ensures the best foundations for future growth and success. We are putting in place the highest health and safety standards for our employees, which remain our highest priority and asset,” he added.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
