New state-of-the art production plant in China announced

The Asia Pacific market has shown a dynamic performance over the last decade, with most countries contributing to growth. The construction of a new plant at the Suzhou Industrial Park, in close proximity to SIG’s existing factory and recently opened Tech Centre, will allow the realisation of operational and overhead synergies.

The plant is expected to come onstream in early 2021. It is expected to achieve world-class environmental and safety performance and to be SIG’s most productive plant, with the fastest, most efficient machines and the highest levels of automation.

“Together with our nearby Tech Centre, our new production plant will ensure that we continue to excel at bringing new and exciting product and packaging concepts to the Asia Pacific market quickly and efficiently.”
