Mauser Packaging Solutions Breaks Ground at Erkelenz Facility, Expands Capacity to Support Circular Economy
29 January 2020

Mauser Packaging Solutions, a global leader in solutions and services across the industrial packaging lifecycle, is excited to announce the expansion of its Erkelenz, Germany facility.

The expansion will include additional warehouse space and the installation of new, state of the art reconditioning and recycled resin processing lines. The investment also increases the company's level of vertical integration of manufacturing capabilities.

The ground breaking ceremony took place on Tuesday, January 28, 2020 and was attended by official representatives from the Erkelenz city council, the company’s construction partner, and Mauser Packaging Solutions leadership.

The investment underlines Mauser Packaging Solutions continued commitment to expanding its pioneering activities in the lifecycle management of packaging. The Erkelenz facility generates high quality, recycled resin from industrial packaging that’s been diverted from the waste stream through collection, recycling, and reprocessing. The recycled resin is used by many of the company’s facilities to manufacture new packaging containing up to 90 percent recycled resin.

In addition to providing reconditioning services and producing recycled resin, the Erkelenz facility manufactures composite Intermediate Bulk Containers (IBCs) and components for the company’s global IBC production activities for over 15 years.

Giving packaging a second life and providing sustainable, circular and cost-effective packaging solutions is a high priority for Mauser Packaging Solutions. The measures that will be implemented at the Erkelenz facility are pointing the way forward for the industry.
