Polish packaging maker Invento has unveiled plans to open a new production facility in Gryfino, in the country’s north-western part. The project is estimated to be worth some PLN 50m (€12m), reports local news site Plastech.pl.
Under the plan, the factory will make PET cans on a total floorspace of 10,000 square metres.
Jacek Gnich, the chief executive of Invento, said that, owing to the company’s technology, production lines which make aluminium cans can be easily and quickly adapted to manufacture Invento’s PET can.
The plant will be located in the GryfiĆ ska special economic zone (GSSE). This will enable Invento with preferential tax treatment for its investment until 2026, when the zones are to cease operations in Poland.
The designed factory will be fitted with two production lines to produce PET cans, and a further two lines which are to make beverages. The plant’s output capacity will be about 160 million cans per year.
The factory is scheduled to be officially launched on September 24 2015, and in the forthcoming years the producer is aiming to further expand the floorspace of its plant.
Invento says it has been active in the Polish plastic packaging industry since 2004. The company’s product range includes 11 types of cans ranging between 250 ml and 500 ml.
