Greiner Packaging upgrades Wilsanco Plastics facility in Northern Ireland

24. December 2007

Dungannon based rigid packaging manufacturer opens GBP 2.5 M new high bay warehouse  

Wilsanco Plastics which became part of Greiner Packaging in January 2006 opened its GBP 2.5 M new high bay warehouse in Dungannon on 23 November. The 22-meter-high semi-automatic warehouse has an area of 2,300 sqm and 3,500 pallet spaces. A special man-operated lifting system is able to take in and out of the store up to 55 pallets per hour. This provides Wilsanco with the flexibility it needs to react to the swift changes in demand from its customers who are mainly from the dairy industry.

The new warehouse features a unique construction: The supporting structure is made of fire-resisting compressed wood delivered by Austrian Kaufmann Bausysteme . The timber construction cuts cost, time needed for installation and the carbon footprint of this project. 

Greiner Packaging which is headquartered in Austria is one of the leading companies in the European packaging industry. In 2006 the company achieved annual sales of GBP 198 million. It employs a workforce of 2,584 employees at 21 production sites throughout Europe. Greiner Packaging is part of the Greiner Holding .
