Plößberg-Liebenstein in Germany’s Upper Palatinate region is home to a very special packaging park. Since 2015 this is where Progroup has been manufacturing corrugated sheetboard which is processed further directly and without any time being lost by Liebensteiner GmbH to make packaging materials of all shapes and sizes.
This is where two production steps that directly follow one another have been combined: the manufacture of corrugated board and the manufacture of cardboard boxes. This has created Europe’s largest packaging park. In 2018 the facility will produce approx. 100,000 tonnes of corrugated board, says Hans-Jürgen Maier, Progroup’s engineering operations director with a great deal of pride in his voice. By 2020 the output is set to rise to more than 110,000 tonnes.
Liebensteiner Kartonagenwerk GmbH operates the packaging plant which is adjacent to the Progroup production facility.
