B+K UK – Expanding for consumer packaging production
UK • Bischof + Klein UK announced it’s expanding with its focus on consumer packaging. Over the past 15 years, the focus of production at its UK subsidiary has gradually shifted from industrial packaging to the production of packaging films for consumer goods. With four flexographic printing presses, it says it has increased capacities at its plant in Telford, and is particularly targeting the food, pet food and hygiene sectors. Last year, the company invested in two printing presses with eight and 10 colours. In cooperation with training institutions, the company trains industrial mechanics, process engineers and printers according to the German model.
