Südpack opens new site in Erolzheim

After two years of construction, the opening of the new Südpack production site in Erolzheim was celebrated.  

With the cutting-edge complex, Südpackis not only significantly enhancing its production capacity – with the fully automated state-of-the-art logistic center, the film manufacturer will now also be able to more effi-ciently supply customers around the world. The buildings provide a usable area of 18,800 m², and the total investment amounted to roughly 40 million euros. Approximately 100 employees will work at the new site.

The new site with roughly 6,700 pallet bays not only serves as a warehouse for mother reels – it is also where they are specifically processed for customers with the latest cutting technology. “With the commissioning of our logistic center in Erolzheim, we have been able to consolidate our various warehouses in one location, which not only improves the efficiency of the production and delivery chain, but also significantly eases the workload of our main plant in Ochsenhausen,” added Erik Bouts, CEO of Südpack.

The Südpack group has strong roots in the region Upper Swabia, but is also well positioned across the world with seven production sites and 20 subsidiaries. In roughly 75 countries spanning all continents, customers use the high-tech films from the company to manufacture packaging and technical products.
