Appe: Construction on Schedule
Appe, Wrexham, UK, the packaging division of LSB, says building work at its new Polish factory is on schedule with commercial production due to commence in December and the plant fully operational by January 2013. The new factory is based in Tychy, near Katowice in the South of Poland. A team of 15 operators has been employed in the manufacturing plant. The workforce is expected to grow rapidly in line with planned production increases.
Three Husky injection moulding machines are being installed initially to satisfy the three major contracts that Appe Polska currently has in place, meaning that its original planned capacity is already sold-out. A DeepGrip blow moulding machine will be installed in 2013 and the plant will offer the full range of APPE technologies including injection moulding, blow moulding and single stage.
Appe Polska expects to double capacity in the near future. The company has put in place an ambitious five year growth plan which is forecasting a 1 billion unit production facility.
