SWEDBRAND Group has announced its new factory in Gdansk, Poland uses the latest in equipment and materials to support SWEDBRAND’s sustainability objectives.
The new plant in Gdansk is a highly automated state-of-the-art converting operation for premium rigid boxes. All boxes are constructed primarily of grey board, representing up to 95% of the total weight of the finished product. The grey board being used is made from recycled paper and it is recyclable as well.
The plant itself has no industrial water consumption and uses more environmentally friendly non-animal glues. Its paper and board are sourced from European mills and they are mostly created from recycled content as well as manufactured from wood pulp acquired from sustainably managed forests. Waste paper, which is minimal, is recycled as well. The plant is heated with more efficient and environmentally friendly natural gas and having many skylights helps to reduce the need for interior lighting. With these and other initiatives, SWEDBRAND’s Gdansk plant consumes a relatively limited amount of electricity considering the volumes of premium boxes it is producing.
