This is one of the biggest single investments ever taken in the history of the Wipak Group. About 20 million Euros have been invested by Wipak in Nastola for the expansion of production capacities. The new line has been officially put into operation in early September. Approximately 200 guests from politics and business had been invited to join the ceremony, including Finland’s prime minister Juha Sipilä, as well as numerous customers and employees.
Increasing both quality and quantity, Wipak’s new production line expands the range of food and medical products, and creates the foundation for a new generation of films: SuperClear and FitForm.
“The line offers new capabilities for the production of flexible, thermoforming films – and our customers will clearly benefit in terms of sustainability, efficiency and performance”, Patrick Verhelst, Director Sales and Marketing of the Wipak Group emphasizes. Users can reduce the material usage and increase their profitability. “The performance and functionality of these thinner structures is absolutely comparable to those of thicker structures”, Adolf Ahrens, Head of Wipak’s Innovation Center adds.
