The project forms part of the company’s strategic plan and has involved the construction of a new production building and the installation of machines for printing and laminating flexible packaging. With the increase in production capacity the company aims to focus on the dairy market where it is already the leader in Spain with products such as yogurt pot lids, banderoles or sleeves, and on the fresh and processed food markets, extending its range of complex flexible packaging, which is also produced at the Emsur Valencia Saymopack plant in Algemesí.
The new 5,000m2 facilities include advances in safety and energy efficiency.
In addition, the plant has set up a new high-speed rotogravure printing line. The design and technology provides higher quality print registration and speeds up work changeovers thanks to the line ergonomics, also improving health and safety for employees and furthering the company’s commitment to environmental sustainability through improved energy efficiency.
The facilities also include a laminator that allows lamination with or without solvents depending on the technical requirements of each product.
With the completion of the project, Emsur Madrid, which has more than 120 employees, now has a capacity of more than 220m square meters.
Santiago Sebastián, managing director of Emsur Madrid and Emsur Valencia Saymopack, said, “This investment allows us to keep growing and extending our portfolio of products in Spain while at the same time we are able to guarantee top quality products and optimize our industrial efficiency which directly contributes to our pursuit of service excellence and customer satisfaction.”
The company also recently inaugurated the INNOTECH I+D centre that shares its facilities with Coexpan España. This new innovation and development centre has been created to help shape a sustainable future for plastic packaging in response to new market and consumer demands.
Emsur said this is another way for the company to strengthen its commitment to sustainability and to the circular economy of plastics.
Emsur is the Grupo Lantero division dedicated to the manufacture of flexible containers for packaging solutions, with both rotogravure and flexographic printing, primarily designed for the food sector.
Emsur has more than 900 employees at its nine production plants in eight countries. It has customers in more than 60 countries in America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia where it wholesales almost 1bn square meters.
