FRANCE • The company is expanding its factory in Bron near Lyon and will open a new competence center in 2018. The construction of this new facility spanning 2,000 square metres, began in October 2017.
For the first time, Bobst Lyon will have its own showroom dedicated entirely to its equipment. Customers will be able to come and learn about its full production lines in real operating conditions. Bobst engineers and technicians will also use the competence center to improve their own skills and develop innovative new machines.
The next phase of the project to expand the Bron site is already scheduled to start this summer, with the construction of a building designed to bring together the whole subsidiary’s administrative staff as of early 2020.
Operating in the Lyon region since 1923, Bobst Lyon employs 750 people and manufactures high-tech equipment. Its packaging machines combine flexo printing, die-cutting and in-line folding-gluing capabilities.
