RAHNING GmbH & Co. KG invests in a new 10-colour gravure printing machine at the Bünde site
RAHNING GmbH & Co. KG, a BEUCKEGROUP company, intends to install a new, state-of-the-art 10-colour gravure printing press from Windmöller & Hölscher in the second quarter of 2018, which will allow the company to expand the plant’s customer and product portfolio, particularly in the area of food packaging, using environmentally-friendly printing inks. The company will also be investing in a new, modern exhaust air technology that will perfectly clean the resulting exhaust air. This will replace an older gravure press and the existing exhaust air technology.
Subject to the application for permits under the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG) – which is currently being prepared –, the application for early construction and the commissioning of the facilities, the start of production of the printing press and the new exhaust air technology is scheduled for the second quarter of 2018.
In order to meet new customer and product requirements, additional investments will be made in the area of finishing machines, laminators and slitter winders.
On the one hand, these investment projects represent RAHNING GmbH & Co.KG’ reaction to the corporate group’s growth plans. On the other hand, these measures serve to secure the location in the medium and long term in a highly competitive European environment. This will allow the company to preserve existing jobs and, after successfully commissioning the investments, to create up to 10 new jobs in the medium term at the location in Bünde, Schnellweg 14-18.
