With the start up of the new film press at the Niklasdorf mill in Austria, Brigl & Bergmeister (B&B) has completed the 3-phase investment programme, “Innovation One” launched in 2013. In 2013, the company already invested in a film press for the Vev?e mill in Slovenia, thus ensuring both mills' future competitiveness.
The newly installed film press replaces the conventional size press and offers numerous benefits. For example, the paper machine's speed is increased even further, while quality is improved and the product range is extended. The traditional range of one-side coated papers can now be produced with an even more selective and consistent surface quality. The new components of the plant are designed to allow for further increases in production capacity in the future.
The investments at both sites in recent years have increased the annual capacity of the B&B Group to 190,000 tonnes. B&B’s focus will remain on high-grade speciality papers for labels and flexible packaging for the consumer packaged goods industry.
B&B is the leading manufacturer of label papers and flexible packaging papers.
