volume of around 30 million euros, the investment program is continuing the
company's consistent modernization and extension of its production plants'
capacity. Over the coming years, expansion of the plant in
Bavaria's Konzell is on the agenda, among other aspects, said B+K. B+K Polska is
extending its extrusion capacities and is aiming to achieve 50% production growth in the medium term. "Sustainability projects, e.g., for
reducing the use of resources and consistently increasing productivity, are of
particular importance to us," said Managing Director Dr. Volker Pfenning.
In 2013, the
B+K-GROUP achieved annual sales of just under 500 million euros with around
2,350 employees, some 1,900 of which are located in Germany. Throughout that year, the
investment program focused on expanding extrusion and printing
capacities as well as on energy efficiency measures at the German plants.
subsidiary companies also performed positively. B+K UK increased its
flexographic printing production and was running at full capacity in 4-shift
operation at the end of the year. A modern 8-color flexographic printing
press, aimed at achieving growth in new markets, came online at B+K France.
With a new extrusion building, B+K Polska created the prerequisites for further
expansion of the plant. The multi-year contract with a major customer landed by
the B+K Middle East Comp. participation (30%) and market growth in the
region are ensuring full utilization of production capacity, which has now
increased to more than 30,000 metric tons per year in Saudi Arabia, and are offering
an adequate basis for further expansion, said the company.
