Breaking into a new market
Working in strategic partnership with the packaging specialist Imbal Carton S.r.l., Progroup is launching another packaging park based on model II in order to enter Europe’s largest corrugated sheetboard market. The new plant in Drizzona was constructed immediately adjacent to the Italian cooperation partner in just ten months. Imbal Carton provides the land and the hall, and Progroup provides the corrugator, the necessary peripherals and also operates the machine.
On 14 February 2018, Prowell will be conducting a machine test in the presence of invited guests to begin its preparations for the start of production. Operating from March 2018 at the new site will be a 2.80 m wide corrugator which, with a working speed of up to 350 m/min, will produce approx. 220 million m² of corrugated sheetboard per year, operating in three shifts. The plan is to manufacture single-wall and double-wall board in the grades B, B NG, C, E and combinations of them. A total of 45 high-tech jobs for new employees will be created at Prowell S.r.l.
Like all Prowell plants, the plant in Drizzona will also be integrated into Progroup’s mill system so that all the relevant data and orders can be centrally managed with great efficiency. This will allow the maximum synergies and integration benefits to be derived – on the one hand within the Progroup business model, and on the other as part of the packaging park model with the partner Imbal Carton S.r.l.
