The complex includes construction of high-technology enterprise for the production of parts and components for packaging machines of MULTIVAC, including manufacturing building, warehouse and logistics premises, training center and administrative part. In addition, MULTIVAC will develop a center for shared IT services, working from 2015, and a center for strategic sourcing. In the coming years, R & D department will be added, too.
