Montreal, QC Kruger is investing $7 million to establish a new packaging plant in Brampton, ON, as part of Phase II of its investment program in the packaging sector.
A hefty portion of the sum will be used to purchase and install a box-making press. The machine will produce four-colour corrugated packaging, permitting Kruger to increase it packaging production capacity in Ontario, while improving quality and increasing diversity.
"We are determined to strengthen our competitive position in the containerboard and packaging sectors," said David Janigan, vice president of Kruger’s containerboard division. "We are therefore pursuing our strategic plan whose primary objective it to improve the equipment and operating systems in our plants."
The first phase of its upgrading initiative saw the modernization of the corrugator and installation of a five-colour rotary die cutter press at Kruger’s Rexdale plant in Toronto, Ontario. A three-colour rotary die cutter press was also installed at its LaSalle packaging plant in Montreal. Combined, the phases account for an overall investment of $12 million.
