Corrugated board producer De Jong Packaging, from De Lier in The Netherlands, is expanding its location. In order to meet the growing demand for corrugated cardboard packaging, De Jong Packaging, together with real estate company WDP, is building a new multilayer distribution centre with storage and production space.
With the investment, De Jong Packaging is expanding its existing production capacity. WDP will realise this project as investor and developer. With WDP, De Jong Packaging has a partner who has a lot of experience in developing and managing storage and production locations. The old storage hall will make way for a hall with a double floor meaning that the storage space will be retained, but lots of extra space gained.
Ready in 2022
Demolition and new construction work on the Westerlee industrial estate has been underway for some time. The new building is being built with an eye for sustainability and it is expected to be completed in 2022.
Many markets use corrugated packaging. Consumers often prefer cardboard packaging to plastic packaging as cardboard is a paper product. Cardboard is also extremely recyclable and therefore has a sustainable image. Many parcels sent in ecommerce go in a box and because we all order more and more parcels online, more boxes are needed.
“I can already see the machines”
Henk de Jong, owner of De Jong Packaging: “I am proud that after a long period of preparations we are allowed to start working on our new factory. When I now walk across the construction site and look around me, I can already see the new machines. I can also imagine how the packaging will soon be loaded into the trucks here.”
