Investment in pioneering laminating technology

2024-06-24 –

Our latest €8 million investment in energy- and resource-efficient laminating technology will significantly advance STI Group`s delivery of CO2-saving lightweight packaging.

As early as November 2024, the most advanced high-speed laminating machine on the market will be installed at our Lauterbach packaging site. Uniquely configured, the machine will maximise packaging sustainability and minimise carbon footprint by utilizing significantly lower grammage papers and finer flutes.

The customised modules in the laminator are all oriented towards maximum resource efficiency. The system can convert super-lightweight paper and cardboard materials into ultra-flat corrugated board of the highest quality, thanks to an innovative glue application process. Requiring significantly less energy than today's laminating machines, it also minimises process waste through its advanced sensor-controlled technology.

The capital investment is fully aligned with STI Group's long-term strategic goals and makes a positive contribution to lowering its carbon footprint. As a member of the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) since 2023, the company is committed to reducing its CO2 emissions in line with the Paris Agreement.
