MAUSER Group, a worldwide leading company in industrial packaging, continues to invest in its IBC operations in Germany. The Erkelenz production campus, which combines manufacturing and reconditioning of Composite Intermediate Bulk Containers, installed a new state-of-the-art blow molder and increased process reliability by automating material workflows.
Considering the growing demand from various end-user markets in Germany and the nearby Benelux region, MAUSER opted proactively to update its production equipment to increase flexibility in customer service and enhance supply reliability. The Erkelenz plant, 40km west of Dusseldorf, is perfectly located to deliver to various chemical industry clusters and transportation hubs.
The latest generation of IBC blow molders from in-house machinery builder MAUSER MACHINERY enables the operations team to produce all current IBC types offered by MAUSER. The installation was flawless and provided customers a seamless transition as well as a “business as usual” experience. With MAUSER’s commitment to providing the most comprehensive and sustainable packaging solutions, the new investment ensures the optimum supply of products to the markets of Western Europe with further improved transport distances and reduced emissions.
