Closure of sites in Austria and Germany

July 11/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Greiner Packaging International (GPI, Kremsmunster / Austria) is planning to close its two production sites in Wernberg / Austria and Rastatt / Germany, as per Plasteurope.

The company says the facilities have been "losing money for quite some time," and despite restructuring in recent years, it was not possible to ensure the viability of the sites within the increasingly competitive environment see of 06.05.2016.

Bottle production, which makes up the bulk of the business in Wernberg, will be transferred to Greiner's packaging site in Kremsmunster. Around 110 employees at the Wernberg and Rastatt sites will be affected by the closures. The employees will be offered alternative jobs within the Greiner group (Kremsmunster), and a redundancy plan is being prepared to provide "the best possible, socially acceptable solutions."

In 2010, Greiner acquired both factories with its takeover of former Austrian bottle and container manufacturer Plastikwerk Expan, which was located in Wernberg. Plastikwerk Expan opened the Wernberg factory in 2004 see of 28.10.2004. Polyolefin containers for cosmetics, chemicals and pharmaceuticals are produced in Rastatt, and the site once belonged to packaging groups such as Swedish packaging manufacturer PLM and German bottle producer Crown Raku.
