23.09.2019 Schütz Nordic undergoes further modernisation and expansion

Schütz, Selters, Germany, reports that its manufacturing plant in Norway located in Kongsvinger, some 100km northeast of Oslo, in late August celebrated its latest expansion and upgrade. The event was attended by more than 100 international guests. The entire local production of plastic components has been concentrated and expanded in a newly built hall covering 1200 square metres. In addition to the extrusion blow moulding facility already in place, a new three-shift layer extrusion blow moulding system was installed and inner container production was linked to IBC assembly via new, fully automated conveyor technology. Production of plastic pallets has also been relocated to the new hall complex with the result that plastics production is now all under a single roof.

During a plant tour, guests were able to gain an insight into manufacturing which consistently follows the most stringent environmental, safety and quality management guidelines. They were also shown latest improvements to in-plant logistics. Another element of the plant expansion is a new, completely separate warehouse which meets the highest food hygiene standards in accordance with FSSC 22000.

Veit Enders, Schütz business unit manager EMEA, and Erik Platek, general manager Schütz Nordic, welcomed representatives from industry, business and local government. Many international customers from a wide variety of sectors also attended the event.
