Market: Packaging Paper & Board
Posted November 13, 2017
Pro-Gest Group completes the expansion of its Trevikart Modugno plant in Italy, doubling its surface from 13,000 sqm to 30,000 sqm. To date, the new production line is being assembled with a width of 2800 mm and up to 7 colors print. It will be fully operative by the end of 2017, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The total investment of Euro 20 million was aimed at renovating and upgrading the plant, with focus on the packaging for the agro-industrial sector, and in particular fruit and vegetables, pasta, cookies and sweets, and the dairy segment.
Bruno Zago, the Group CEO, said: “Our strategy is to develop, thanks to the Modugno plant, a greater presence in the southern Italian regions. The market’s response makes us optimistic and today we can also count on more suitable warehouse space and technologically advanced machinery. The re-organization brought with the acquisition both at a production and sales-marketing level has already given the first positive outcome with the increase of Trevikart Modugno’s turnover (in 1 year) of more than 20%: from Euro 13 million in 2015 to Euro 16 million in 2016.”
Pro-Gest is Italy’s leading vertically integrated producer of packaging in corrugated board, active in all fields, from the collection of raw materials to packaging production.
