Mondi has completed the implementation of a new state-of-the-art paper sack converting machine at its Nyíregyháza site in Hungary. The machine – a Windmöller & Hölscher AD 8320 / AM 8115 – allows the plant to produce a new line of sophisticated paper sacks for food packaging. The site will be capable of producing more than 130 million sacks annually.
Due to this Euro 7 million investment, the entire layout and set-up of the Nyíregyháza plant was re-designed in four months, including the storage area, printer area, warehouse, and ink kitchen to increase operational efficiency and safety.
The plant is now in the process of seeking the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) certification by the end of this year in order to serve the food, feed and seed industry with sacks that meet their high quality and hygiene standards.
The Mondi Nyíregyháza plant, which employs more than one hundred people, serves the Hungarian, Romanian, Austrian and Bulgarian market in many industries and sectors. It produces industrial paper sacks (open mouth and valve bags) for applications such as cement, building materials, food-feed-seed, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
