Starting with upgrades at Ierapetra's Box Plant this summer, the investments will not only advance packaging capabilities but also create a safer working environment. Investment into other sites located in Ancient Corinth and Thessaloniki will also see the modernization of equipment and minimize raw material waste.

Our people, continuous innovation, and top technology in our three production facilities are the keys to providing the highest quality and circular ready packaging solutions.
