DS Smith invests €6 million in a converting machine for Eerbeek packaging plant in Netherlands

The investment is in response to growing customer demand for sustainable plastic replacement solutions.

The new state-of-the-art 4-colour converting machine will produce the well-known FEFCO 0201 bespoke boxes and alternative grades for customers. It is currently in start-up phase and equipped with an advanced automatic inline error detection system.

The computer-controlled technology will check the quality of the printing and gluing and enhance the accuracy of the machinery while applying additional preciseness to the die-cutting lines in the packaging and folding process.

“We are thrilled to take this new step in our ongoing commitment to excellence and sustainability. This investment underscores our dedication to delivering high-quality packaging solutions that meet the needs of our customers while contributing to a more sustainable future,” says Philip Bautil, Managing Director of DS Smith Benelux.

“With this new investment we are continuing to meet our customers supply chain challenges and respond to their requirements for growth. We are still seeing an increased demand for products that require sustainable plastic replacement and fibre-based solutions,”
