A B Graphic International (ABG) has opened a new manufacturing facility in Girona, Spain. The EUR 2m investment will also be used by Enprom Solutions, part of the group.
The new production facility will manufacture ABG branded products and Enprom Solutions nonstop winding machines, converting lines, sleeve machines and automated customized products. ABG and Kocher+Beck jointly acquired the Spanish converting machinery specialist in July 2019.
Having expanded its offering by adding shrink sleeve machines and winder solutions to its portfolio, ABG considers the new building integral to the five-year strategic plan by providing increased sales potential across ABG’s global network.
The move will also help increase capacity across the group, provide opportunities to improve productivity and efficiency, and focus on increasing levels of customer service.
In an informal, relaxed event over paella and a few drinks, consisting of 50 staff members, the facility's opening was attended by key individuals from ABG, including owner Mike Burton and CEO Richard Knight, Lars Beck, owner Kocher+Beck and Joan Marc Taboas, CEO Enprom Solutions.
Commenting on the event, Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director, said: ‘By opening this key Spanish manufacturing site, we are sending a message to our global customers that we are in a great position to offer a comprehensive portfolio of finishing solutions, providing them with complete flexibility and enhanced levels of support.’
