Investments in Gliwice, Poland, expand product offering to support growing demand for sustainable packaging in the region.
Mauser Packaging Solutions, a global leader in solutions and services across the packaging life cycle, is expanding its reconditioning network and production capabilities for products that incorporate recycled plastic (PCR) in Poland through recent investments in state-of-the-art, automated equipment. These investments support the collection and supply of reconditioned Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) and plastic drums in the region and further promote the circular economy through the expanded use of PCR.
“The investments in Gliwice, Poland, are another milestone for Mauser Packaging Solutions. We are proud to expand our reconditioning capabilities and Infinity Series production capacity in Europe. We strive to create a more sustainable future for our customers and with our new capabilities in Poland, we are taking a big step forward,” supplemented Marcin Krzysteczko, Sales Director Poland.
Expanded capabilities at the Gliwice site will enable Mauser Packaging Solutions to offer reconditioning services for IBCs and plastic drums to customers in the region. Reconditioned packaging is available in a variety of specifications for both UN and non-UN applications. Reconditioning gives packaging a second life, diverting it from landfills and preserving natural resources. Through their Recover Syst-M solution, customers can easily schedule a pickup of empty IBCs and plastic drums from their facility or their customers.
Infinity Series Expansion
Investments in a new multi-layer, plastic drum blow molding machine will help meet growing consumer demand for Mauser Packaging Solutions’ Infinity Series product line. Infinity Series products are manufactured with high-quality, recycled resin called Recolene®. Recolene® is manufactured in-house from suitable raw materials that have reached the end of their usable life and collected through Recover Syst-M. The new machine will be used to manufacture plastic drums ideal for use in a variety of industries. Use of recycled resin gives plastic materials a new life, reduces industrial waste, conserves raw materials, and decreases greenhouse gas emissions.
“In addition to reconditioning and expanded Infinity Series capabilities, the new production site allows us to offer our customers even greater security of supply, flexibility in order fulfillment, new product opportunities, and the chance to reduce their carbon footprints,” said Lukasz Wesolowski, Plant Manager.
