Brigl & Bergmeister is investing in a new Andritz film press for its site in Vevče, Slovenia.
On 11 October 2012 Brigl & Bergmeister commissioned Austrian company Andritz to build a film press for the PM5 at Papirnica Vevče in Vevče (near Ljubljana).
Brigl & Bergmeister – one of the world's leading producers of special papers for labels and flexible packaging – will thus increase annual capacity at the Vevče site by 20,000 tonnes, to 110,000 tonnes p.a. Moreover, by increasing and improving the initial coat in the paper machine, it will be possible to enhance product quality even further and offer new, innovative solutions for the packaging industry.
This is Brigl & Bergmeister's second major investment since it was acquired by paper trading group Roxcel last year. The first major investment was its acquisition of the ENAGES thermal energy recovery plant, which supplies power to Brigl & Bergmeister's site in Niklasdorf, Austria.
