Dunapack Rambox, Dunapack Packaging’s Romanian operations, part of the Austrian Prinzhorn Group, announces the start of construction works for its new packaging plant in Bolintin-Deal. The factory will run as a complimentary production site alongside the existing Dunapack Rambox site in Sfântu Gheorghe, Covasna, which will receive a significant technical upgrade. The Bolintin plant is scheduled to begin operations in June 2019.
The new 27,000 m2 Dunapack Rambox factory will feature state-of-the-art equipment such as a high-speed 2.8 m Fosber corrugator, a high-precision, multi-colour converting machine by Bobst as well as an automated pallet operation system. Planned production capacity is 180 million m2/year. Together, the two Dunapack Rambox plants will reach a yearly production capacity of approx. 300 million m2.
“Romania was and still is one of our key growth markets. With the support of local authorities and all the necessary ressources at hand, we are pleased to be taking this major step in this vibrant and growing market” , states Cord Prinzhorn, CEO of the family-owned and operated Prinzhorn Group.
The new Bolintin-Deal factory’s product mix will focus on high-quality corrugated boxes, industrial packaging for bulk sizes, retail and e-commerce packaging as well as a wide range of other high-quality, multi-colour packaging solutions. The broad production spectrum reflects the demands generated by an increasingly segmented consumer market.

In addition, due to our flexible machinery set-up, we have the opportunity to react quickly and efficiently to new industry challenges”, explains Alexander Enzenberg, CEO of Dunapack Packaging Division.
Presently, Dunapack Rambox supplies more than 500 customers throughout all major industries.
