Sanner invests in Bensheim production facility

Published: 8-Aug-2017

Sanner, a manufacturer of primary plastic packaging and medical devices, has successfully completed the expansion of its production facility in Bensheim

Fourteen new, state-of-the-art injection moulding machines were installed to improve production. With an investment of almost €3 million, Sanner has paved the way for future-oriented manufacturing at its headquarters.

One year after the start of the expansion, Sanner has successfully completed the project, during which the entire machine park was replaced with 14 latest-generation injection moulding machines. The Sanner team completed the project on schedule and within the designated budget.

Dirk Mähr, Managing Director of Sanner, said: “Our goal was to further automate production and increase both capacity and efficiency. A goal we have definitely achieved.”

Ready for industry 4.0

With this expansion, the company is taking another important step towards future-oriented production at its headquarters in Bensheim. The new injection moulding machines ensure faster processes and can be further automated at any time.

The packaging specialist is now optimally equipped for the challenges of industry 4.0 and for further optimisation projects. During the next few years, Sanner will also expand its portfolio in the areas of capsules and desiccant packaging.

Focus on sustainability

Mähr continued: “During the modification, in line with Sanner's sustainability concept, we were also able to significantly reduce energy consumption during production. This includes, amongst others, a renewed media supply for cooling water and compressed air, a better raw material supply and the installation of new cranes. Thanks to new lighting and a reduced noise level, Sanner employees also benefit from easier workflows and better working conditions.”
