The process of globalisation and the ups and downs of economic and political developments, changes in society in Europe, key environmental issues and not least the typical challenges of the industry will demand a great deal of flexibility but also consistency from Progroup through to 2025. With the Two Twentyfive strategy, Progroup is approaching the ten-year period ahead with ambitious projects and actions focused on success and consistently pursuing the further expansion of its leadership of the sheet-feeding market in Central Europe.
Progroup continues its growth strategy with the start of construction of the PW14 corrugated sheet feeder plant in Poland. The company's twelfth production facility for corrugated sheetboards is now being built on the site of the existing PW07 plant in Stryków, making it the third plant in Poland. On an area of around 27,900 square metres, Progroup is once again setting trends in the industry in terms of productivity and sustainability. The company is investing around 72 million euros in a production facility that is geared towards sustainability; among other things, a combined heat, power and cooling plant (CHP) will be used to generate energy. The new plant will produce up to 200,000 tonnes of corrugated sheetboards annually from the fourth quarter of 2022. Thus, Stryków will become one of the largest corrugated board production sites in the world with a production capacity of 825 million square metres per year.
In Sandersdorf-Brehna (Saxony-Anhalt) one of the world’s most modern paper machines for manufacturing containerboard, the starting material for producing environmentally friendly corrugated board packaging, was built in 2020. The ground-breaking ceremony took place back in August 2018. After the initial start-up phase, Progroup’s third paper factory will produce an annual capacity of 750,000 tonnes of containerboard with a working width of 9.20 metres.
