Printing ink specialist hubergroup Print Solutions has opened a new production plant in Wroclaw, Poland, acting as a delivery and service hub for customers throughout Europe and increasing its production capabilities in the region.
The site in Wroclaw is hubergroup’s third production plant in Europe – next to plants in Celle, Germany, and Bolzano Vicentino, Italy. While it has been operating as a mixing station in Poland since 1992, the company has now expanded the Polish branch to a production site.
Production at the new site started in autumn 2020 and has gradually expanded since. Now, all production lines, offices, and the laboratory are fully operating.
The newly built plant incorporates production facilities for the company’s water-based varnishes of the Acrylac series and the solvent-based inks of the Gecko series.
In addition to that, the site accommodates dosing lines for the mixing of conventional offset and UV curing inks as well as for hubergroup’s Tinkredible series, which is designed for printing on metal.
As a central service hub for Eastern Europe, the site also incorporates a laboratory with a customer and technical service department. It is dedicated to all types of printing inks and supports printing houses from all over the world.
Dr Janusz Cymanek, manager of hubergroup Poland, said: ‘With the new plant, hubergroup has also invested in state-of-the-art facilities. We are happy that the site is now fully operating and that we can provide our customers with large quantities of high-quality printing inks and varnishes even faster now.’
‘The role of hubergroup Poland has changed: from a local service hub to an integrated European production facility,’ added Dirk Aulbert, member of the Management Board of hubergroup. ‘We invested in modern production equipment and produce technologically advanced water-based varnishes in Wroclaw. The plant has been designed to enable us to grow even more. We are very proud that our Wroclaw team has been so actively involved in shaping all these changes.’
