Dunapack Packaging, part of the Austrian Prinzhorn Group, is expanding its productions site near Athens by an additional 6,960 m². The project was launched in the second half of 2019 and is scheduled to be finished in May 2022, the company writes.

The expansion comprises the enlargement of the converting area as well as a new warehouse for raw materials and finished goods. Dunapack Hellas will install a second packaging line, an inliner and a 2.1 m wide flatbed die-cutter, according to the press statement. Furthermore, the existing corrugator will be upgraded.

The plant will reach its total production capacity of 140 million m² on completion of the expansion measures in May 2022.

In order to optimise internal and external logistics, the facility consists of two levels connected by a fully automated handling system and elevators. With the new plant setup, Dunapack Packaging Hellas will be one of the most modern and versatile packaging plants in the region, the company says.

Dunapack Packaging Hellas SA (formerly Viokyt) has been part of Dunapack's Packaging division since its acquisition in 2016. At that time the company, located in Schimatari Viotias, had 149 employees and reached a sales volume of 40 million m².

The first investment cycle took place between 2016 and 2018. This expansion stage saw an increase in capacity to 83 million m² with the installation of a new corrugator and two new converting machines, an automated packing line and handling systems. Simultaneously, a new site was created, which produces digitally printed and cut packaging materials.
