Constantia Flexibles is “spending a lot of money”: the production capacities at the site in Burgos, Northern Spain, are being expanded. The total investment amounts to approximately four million euros. The efforts are centered primarily on a new narrow web short-run printer and a narrow web adhesive lamination machine.

The market environments have changed rapidly. Requirements for short run services have risen steadily recently and will continue to rise in future. The reasons are obvious: new product launches, sampling, market tests, promotions, et cetera. As a result, Constantia Flexibles has decided to invest in the printing and lamination technologies that has been successfully used in our plant for decades. This “short run offer” allows dedicated customer service that satisfies specific requirements and provides speedy delivery.

The site in Burgos belongs to Constantia Tobepal, which has been serving customers for more than 80 years primarily with foil-based flexible packaging for the pharmaceutical, home and personal care and the food industries. In total, Constantia Tobepal employs about 500 people at its two production sites in Burgos and Logrono in Spain.

“This investment not only increases our operational efficiency due to its focus on short run batches, but also emphasizes our clear commitment to always propose to our partners the most reliable and "agile" offer,” said Gerold Riegler, Chief Operating Officer at Constantia Flexibles, about the investment.
