With this milestone, Grupo Lantero takes one step further for its Strategic Plan “Horizon 2020” to become a solid global player in the plastic packaging food market in Europe and America.
COEXPAN, the plastic Division of Grupo Lantero specializing in the manufacture of rigid plastic sheets and thermoformed products, has been operating in Brazil since 1997. Now, EMSUR, the sister Division dedicated to produce flexible containers, comes to Brazil to operate together with COEXPAN, employing a total of 67 people in a shared production plant located in Jundiaí (Sao Paulo), the largest economic and industrial hub in Latin America.
COEXPAN-EMSUR BRASIL has nearly 7,000 sq-ft built so far and will double the capacity for future needs. It is equipped with high-quality technology to produce both rigid and flexible packaging solutions, including PS and PP extruded barrier sheets for FFS, rotogravure printing for labels and lids with hot melt application in line, and sleeves capabilities.
As Daniel Richena, General Manager of COEXPAN-EMSUR BRASIL, stated: “Brazil is the first manufacturing site of Grupo Lantero that produces rigid plastic sheets and flexible products under the same roof, which will bring us all advantages and synergies to best attend our customers and support our global footprint.”
The main asset for this production center is the opportunity to maximize commercial synergies between both business units with their experience and know-how in rigid and flexible packaging. The manufacturing processes have been specifically optimized under the LEAN methodology to guarantee maximum efficiency.
This new plant reinforces the presence of both plastic divisions in the American market and strengthens the product portfolio of COEXPAN-EMSUR BRASIL. It reaffirms the total commitment to keep growing together with our customers, always offering tailored solutions to their requirements and looking for the maximum operational excellence.
This major landmark is armoured by the launch of a new visual identity in which both divisions align their brands and compose a new logotype, which allows the organization to communicate effectively a new positioning in the market: “Rigid and Flexible Packaging”
