Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, has successfully completed the installation of major new equipment at its corrugated box production plant in Szczecin, Poland to meet growing e-commerce demand. The installation of the new machinery also marks further progress in Mondi’s ambition to further digitalise its business by using more advanced analytics and automation to better serve its customers with innovative and sustainable packaging and paper solutions.
“This investment in our Szczecin plant has strengthened our e-commerce packaging approach. With our expanded range of sustainable solutions, like our award winning SizeMeMailer and Envelope Mailer, and greater production capacity, our customers will enjoy more packaging options and faster deliveries. In parallel, the arrival of these new machines will result in reducing our energy consumption as we focus on limiting our carbon footprint in order to contribute to a better world” says Armand Schoonbrood, COO, Mondi Corrugated Solutions
The new equipment includes a five-colour Bobst Masterline 2.1 HD and a Robot MUK, which will produce sustainable packaging solutions for the growing e-commerce market in north-eastern Germany, Denmark, Sweden and Poland. Both machines will be equipped with automatic palletisers, run at faster speeds to increase production capacity and ensure high quality printing. Mondi's award winning 100% recyclable SizeMeMailer and Envelope Mailer alongside other packaging solutions will be produced from this site.
Mondi’s expanded range of e-commerce packaging solutions follows the ‘3-e approach’ of being more efficient, economic and easy. Not only do they maximise convenience and the customer experience, they can also reduce the costs of logistics and contribute to greater sustainability by reducing product and material waste.
