03.02.2020 MAUSER extends Erkelenz plant with increased commitment to circular economy

MAUSER-Werke GmbH, the German subsidiary of US-based Mauser Packaging Solutions, is investing more than 10 million euros in the extension of its Erkelenz facility. Operations at this MAUSER plant include manufacture of composite intermediate bulk containers (IBCs) and components for the company’s global IBC production activities. MAUSER also has industrial packaging reconditioning and plastic recycling activities in Erkelenz. The ground breaking ceremony on 28 January was attended by official representatives of Erkelenz city council, the construction company responsible for the plant expansion and MAUSER.

One focus of the recent investment is to scale up the company’s activities in the food packaging sector and in the lifecycle management of packaging and packaging materials. For example, the Erkelenz plant manufactures Recolene, a sustainable HDPE post-consumer resin material for high quality HDPE applications. It is then processed at the Erkelenz facility and many other European MAUSER plants into new packaging containing up to 90 percent post-consumer recycled (PCR) material.

The measures that have been implemented at the Erkelenz plant are pointing the way forward for the industry, in terms of sustainable, circular and cost-effective packaging. They underline MAUSER’s commitment to resource-friendly and responsible production. The company offers customers a state of the art portfolio of packaging-related products and services covering the full packaging lifecycle, from manufacture to collection, reconditioning and recycling.
