Sudpack opens new packaging facility in Germany


The buildings provide a usable area of 18,800 m², and the total investment amounted to roughly 40 million euros

In a frame adapted to the current situation, the opening of the new SÜDPACK production site in Erolzheim in Germany was celebrated recently after two years of construction. With pioneering packaging solutions for food packaging, SÜDPACK is working towards coping with the challenges of international markets.

After consultation with the regional authorities, the hygiene concept that had been worked out complied with the regulations for events. With the cutting-edge complex, German firm SÜDPACK is not only significantly enhancing its production capacity – with the fully automated state-of-the-art logistic center, the film manufacturer will now also be able to more efficiently supply customers around the world.

The buildings provide a usable area of 18,800 m², and the total investment amounted to roughly 40 million euros. Approximately 100 employees will work at the new site.

After two years of construction and a total investment of 40 million euros, the plot with roughly ten hectares is now home to a two-story production and warehouse building, a four-story office and staff building and a high bay warehouse measuring 27 meters in height. 

All construction work, structures and systems for the technically demanding machinery meet the latest standards and also comply with demanding hygiene requirements. “Only then are we able as a leading packaging company to supply our customers in the food and medical product industries with packaging materials that comply with high standards of functionality and hygiene,” explained Erik Bouts, CEO of SÜDPACK.

The new site with roughly 6,700 pallet bays not only serves as a warehouse for mother reels – it is also where they are specifically processed for customers with the latest cutting technology. “With the commissioning of our logistic center in Erolzheim, we have been able to consolidate our various warehouses in one location, which not only improves the efficiency of the production and delivery chain, but also significantly eases the workload of our main plant in Ochsenhausen,” added Erik Bouts.
