The company said it strengthens its commitment to expanding its global footprint and enhancing its manufacturing capabilities to meet the growing demand for sustainable packaging solutions.

The investment will focus on machinery to boost production efficiency, quality, and capacity at the site, and moving to another efficiency-focused facility.

Key equipment acquisitions include a Koenig & Bauer Rapida printing press, Bobst Visioncut die-cutter, which further optimizes the production process, reducing waste and improving efficiency.
