Walki Group, a leading producer of technical laminates and protective packaging materials has successfully moved the production of corrugated boxes, used for the packaging of copy paper, to a new production facility in Kwidzyn, Poland.
Walki’s production lines, which specialise in the manufacturing of corrugated boxes for copy paper, have been relocated to Kwidzyn – 270 km north-west of Warsaw – from the company’s Jatne plant – 40 kilometres South-East from Warsaw. With the move, Walki seeks to keep production close to its main customer.
First production tests at the Kwidzyn plant were made in November 2012 and a normal production level was reached at the end of December according to plans.
Walki’s investment program also includes the instalment of a new flexographic printing machine at its Jatne plant.
The printing machine will be started in the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2013 focusing mainly on the production ream wrap used mostly for the wrapping of A4 and A3 copy paper reams.
