Progroup AG, which is based in Landau in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate, is pursuing ambitious growth targets as part of its ‘Two25’ strategy. An integral part of this programme is the new corrugated sheetboard plant in Eisfeld, Thuringia. Progroup is thus further expanding its leading position in the corrugated sheetboard market in the centre of Europe.
The new corrugated sheetboard plant is set to be constructed on a plot covering an area of around 87,000 square metres. The level of investment will be around 60 million euros. This makes it one of the biggest investments in the region. In total, this will create more than 50 new jobs and training positions. Production will commence in the fourth quarter of 2019. The plant will be noted for its sustainable production, state-of-the-art working environment and numerous technical innovations.
