To stay ahead of growing international competition, we made a major investment in our strapping production division in 2007 and built a production site in Muckental, close to the German headquarters in Waldbrunn. The entire strapping production function including warehousing, shipping and administration is located to this plant facility, which is one of the most modern manufacturing sites in Europe, allowing us to meet the increasing demand for high-quality strapping materials with short delivery times.
Several automated extrusion lines operate 24 hours a day 7 days a week, to produce PP and PET strapping materials for use in strapping machines. We manufacture strap in widths from 5 to 15.5 mm, which can be used in all strapping machines, irrespective of the machine type or manufacturer.
Environmental sustainability was a key issue from the early stages of planning, construction and operation at the plant. The site benefits from a huge flat roof which has been used to full its potential as it accommodates a photovoltaic system with 2,500 square meters of solar panels, which feed the power supply system. Energy is even recycled inside the production hall; excess heat generated from isolated hot parts of the machine equipment is used to heat the hall on cold days. Whilst energy gained from brake lines is made available to the system again in the form of electricity. Nothing wasted, everything to gain!
