As part of the investment, a new cutting-edge Windmöller & Hoelscher Corp. production line that will increase the company’s sack production by 100 million additional units/yr will begin operating in 2021 in Palmira, Colombia. A similar project at Smurfit Kappa’s paper sack plant in the Dominican Republic was recently successfully undertaken.
An extensive upgrade to the paper machine that produces the sack paper will also be made. The investment will increase the speed of the machine and enhance the quality of its multi-sheet paper sacks.
The expansion and upgrade of the sacks business in the region will significantly strengthen Smurfit Kappa’s customer offering. Innovative and sustainable paper sacks are sought after by a wide variety of sectors including construction, industrial, food, and agriculture across Colombia, Ecuador, Central America and the Caribbean.
