Posted June 21, 2018
Peterson, one of the leading players in the Scandinavian packaging industry, announces the construction of a new Norwegian flagship production site in Halden. Operations currently located in Sarpsborg city centre, adjacent municipality to Halden, will be transferred to the new site, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The new factory's efficiency in terms of even higher delivery reliability and shorter delivery times will be a clear win for customers and will keep Peterson at the forefront of innovation in the 4.0 industry of the future.
The new plant in Halden will be unique in the entire region, as the greenfield project enables a state-of-the art set up. For this purpose production equipment will be completely renewed. Finished products will be stored at and distributed from a new high-bay warehouse, fully integrated with all digital production systems. The high-bay warehouse will offer exceptional commercial benefits in terms of delivery reliability and delivery times. Total production capacity will increase significantly. It’s expected to be completed by autumn 2019.
"Peterson has a long history in the Østfold region. Therefore we are very pleased to invest in a brand new factory located in the same area, close to our customers. We will be able to offer our customers improved quality and service levels. The rebuild is a solid long-term investment for the future of Peterson and its customers," said Dan Johannessen, Managing Director of Peterson.
Peterson is an independent Scandinavian company, owned by VPK Packaging Group and Klingele, two family held packaging manufacturers, sharing a long-term company vision and a long track in sustainable packaging solutions.
