Van Genechten Packaging increase capacity in Poland

Turnhout, June 3, 2022 | In line with our company's strategic plans, we're delighted to share the next major step in the process of strengthening our market position in Europe: a significant securing of industrial growth capacity and the expansion of our Production and Warehouse space in the area of Chelmek, Poland. 

Only a couple of weeks after announcing VG Komarom II's start-up, we continue to expand in promising European markets and regions. With our initiative in Poland we are providing more capacity within a growing industry, strengthening the resilience of our raw material supply chain and providing even more flexibility towards our customers. 

This investment includes access to a property of about 110.000 m² which also boasts significant potential for additional further expansion. The new building for Co-packing and Finishing as well as Warehousing infrastructure close to our existing production plant, embraces flexible and technologically advanced office accommodation as well as guestroom facilities.

As ever, this future-ready location has been developed with total focus on our customers' needs and offers our entire group multiple opportunities to develop and grow.
