Protective packaging and laminates group Walki has revealed a €10m plan to build a new manufacturing facility in Poland

The facility in Wroclaw will be Walki’s third in the country and is due to begin production in the autumn of this year.

Initially, Walki intends to serve the forestry industry and consumer packaging markets from the plant and it will employ around 50 staff when it opens.

Walki chief executive Leif Frilund said: “With this investment, Walki is showing its strong commitment to its fast growing customer base in Central and Eastern Europe by providing more efficient and sustainable supply chain solutions and better customer service capabilities.

“Being close to our customers has always been paramount to Walki and with this green field facility we will now be able to offer shorter lead times and on a longer term a wider product offering.”

Timo Finnström, executive vice president for operations, added: “By setting up this world class manufacturing unit, we are creating a platform to expand our operations as we continue to grow. Further, we will have more opportunities to optimize our European production activities and to get access to new raw-material sources.”
