Thimm Group opens its new Holledau corrugated cardboard plant in Germany

16 September 2017

Thimm Verpackung opens its new Holledau plant in Bavaria, Germany. State-of-the-art production technologies, efficient and highly-automated processes coupled with a flexible, customer-oriented organisation with a comprehensive service element are just some of the highlights of one of the most advanced plants in Europe.

Testament to this at the new Wolnzach site are the installation of latest generation rotation and flat-bed cutting technologies in addition to the high-tech corrugator. The different systems complement each other perfectly because a wide range of packaging formats can be produced in varying print runs at optimum costs. The plant is also able to die-cut complex designs with challenging perforations (e.g. for shelf-ready packaging). Another feature to be highlighted is the high degree of automation and the part-automated set-up process on the rotary-die cutter.

The favourable geographical location of the plant between Munich and Nuremberg links important economic metropolitan areas within Germany as well as the adjacent export markets.

Thimm has thus reinforced its own production network with eight sites in Western, Central and Eastern Europe, and specifically when combined with its sister-plants in Alzey (Rhineland-Palatinate) and Všetaty (Czech Republic), customers in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Switzerland have the security of reliable deliveries.

Thimm Verpackung celebrated the ground-breaking ceremony for the new Bavarian corrugated cardboard plant in Wolnzach in September 2015. Production capacity is 120 million square metres of corrugated cardboard. Thimm has invested a total of Euro 60 million in the plant to date.
