IP invests over € 20 MM to meet growing eCommerce demand for sustainable corrugated packaging in France
The International Paper plants in Mortagne (Société Normande de Carton Ondulé - SNCO) and Chalon (Emballages Laurent SAS) will benefit from investments of nearly € 23 million to adapt their production capacity to the growth of the e-commerce sector and to offer even more sustainable packaging to customers. As part of the project, up to 50 new positions will be created in France.
This investment is the largest at the two facilities in several years, and includes the installation of new equipment that will increase converting capacity at the Mortagne and Chalon sites by 60% and 50% respectively. It will allow International Paper to offer customers an even wider choice of premium corrugated packaging solutions.
“Our customers and end users want products that contribute to a more sustainable, low-carbon future”, said John Berry, General Manager European Packaging at International Paper. “We make products that people depend on every day and are helping to deliver a positive consumer experience, seeking to advance circular solutions across our entire value chain.”
