Constantia Flexibles Group is optimising its film-based flexible packaging, manufacturing footprint in Europe by closing down its plant in Bucharest in Romania. The closure is expected to be finalised by July 2017 and will affect about 90 employees.
Constantia Flexibles will continue to serve its customers from the confectionery and snack industries from its qualified, large-scale plants in Weiden, Germany, Ankara, Turkey and Kleszczów, Poland.
“We will carry out this closure in a fair and socially responsible way, while at the same time ensuring that our valued customers experience no disruption in supply,” said Stefan Grote, Executive Vice President of the Food Europe Division.
“The transfer of production capacities will also mean we can offer a dedicated plant concept to our customers in the long-term, thus optimising order placement, production scheduling, logistics and quality,” added Grote.
Constantia Flexibles’ Food Europe Division has twelve production sites in eight countries, serving the Dairy, Processed Meat and Confectionery/Processed Food industries.
