SIG opens state-of-the-art production plant in Mexico

Unlocking new growth potential in North America

After just 12 months of construction, Switzerland-based firm SIG has brought its state-of-the-art production plant for aseptic carton packaging into operation in Queretaro, Mexico. With a total investment of €73 million, the new plant will serve North American markets and further expand SIG’s global production network to build on its strong track record of growth in the region.

With an emphasis on production capacity for printing, cutting, and finishing of carton packs, more than 200 jobs have been created at the new plant, which has a highly flexible layout with a focus on ergonomics and the environment.

Covering an area of 20,751.21 square meters, SIG’s packaging plant in Queretaro starts with a production of 500 million carton packs in the first year of production, increasing to 1.2 billion sleeves in 2024. Production at the new plant will initially focus on mid and large-size carton packs. SIG’s second phase of the plant includes an expansion into small formats.
