SIG is celebrating the official opening of its new €10 million Packaging Development Center Europe, located at the company’s packaging plants in Linnich, Germany. The center is set to accelerate new and sustainable packaging developments, offering added value to SIG customers.

The state-of-the-art center features advanced technology for extrusion and finishing, as well as quality measurement systems and testing equipment. This will significantly increase packaging processability in serial production, system validation, and capacity for future digital technologies.

As the demand for sustainable packaging options rises, the new Packaging Development Center Europe will expedite the development of innovative packaging formats and materials, further solidifying SIG’s leading position in sustainable packaging solutions. Remarkably, it is also built according to the latest and most effective energy standards.

Marcel Schopen, department manager of test field, prototype & pilot plant at SIG, emphasizes the importance of staying ahead in product development and packaging in today’s fast-paced food and beverage industry. “Our high-end Packaging Development Center enables us to support our customers at greater speed, with complete end-to-end solutions,” Schopen said. “We will be able to develop and validate new packaging solutions and innovative packaging materials even faster and more efficiently. Together with our existing co-creation and test-filling facilities for food and beverage products, we can produce carton sleeves, fill products in line with food hygiene regulations, and pack them on pallets – operating like packaging and food & beverage mini factories from start to finish.”

Gavin Steiner, chief technology officer at SIG, stated, “We’re incredibly proud of our new Packaging Development Center Europe. It perfectly complements our existing facilities and enhances our ability to deliver breakthrough developments and accelerate speed to market. Our partnerships with customers will be strengthened, and second-to-none customer service will be provided. With the packaging innovations we are developing on site, we’re setting the course for SIG’s future growth in Europe and beyond.”
