A new production line has been installed at the Quadpack Plastics injection-moulding plant to manage the increased volume of acrylic jar manufacture. Quadpack’s Manufacturing Division now has a combined production capacity of 170 million items a year, including the Quadpack Wood and Quadpack Impressions facilities.

Since establishing the Spain-based Manufacturing Division in 2013, output has steadily risen, reflecting the growth of the company. A policy of continued investment has ensured plant expansion, automation and improvements in facilities and processes. Some 20 per cent of Quadpack’s output is manufactured in-house, a figure which is set to rise over the coming years.

The Manufacturing Division is a key part of the company’s hybrid business model. This model gives Quadpack a level of flexibility which other manufacturers lack, being able to source products from around the world. At the same time, it allows it to offer a competitive edge to clients through its own specialised manufacture, unlike sourcing-only operations.

A €2m investment budget has been assigned for the current year, of which the 250tn production line at Quadpack Plastics is part. Further investment will focus on an increase in production capacity at the Quadpack Wood factory, with new CNC milling, wood-turning, planing and sanding lines, with a view to doubling its capacity by 2020.

The challenge for that year’s graduating class had been set by Quadpack, partnering with Elisava for the first time.

Louvrette one year on: a successful journey

What happens when German engineering excellence meets creativity born in Barcelona? A raft of innovative solutions, developed, produced and delivered in a way that’s sustainable, creative and efficient. That is just one of the outcomes of the rare but successful ‘marriage’ between German manufacturer Louvrette and Quadpack. A lot has happened in the year since the acquisition, which pushed Quadpack into the Top 10 of European beauty packaging providers.

As Sustainability and Innovation are key priorities for Quadpack and the global consumer market, the organisation feels the responsibility to work with supply partners from all regions to establish a new way of doing business, where collaboration is the new competition. On November 13, 2019, Quadpack held a dedicated suppliers’ conference on Sustainability and Innovation in Hong Kong to facilitate this new era of partnerships.
