Synthetic fruit-crate manufacturer Schoeller Allibert invests 15 million in new production location

The laying of the foundation stone will take place soon for the new Belgian branch of Schoeller Allibert in Beringen. In the long term, about 70 people will be working in the greenfield. Schoeller Allibert is European market leader for recyclable synthetic packaging and containers, and offers sustainable alternatives to disposable packaging such as cardboard, wood and plastic for single use. The company supplies plastic boxes and crates to the fresh produce sector from harvest to supermarket shelves. 

Entrepreneur Ludo Gielen, who leads the innovation team for Schoeller Allibert, invested considerably in the building, making the project even more special. He also believes in the future of recyclable synthetic packaging and containers, and in the growth still possible for Schoeller Allibert. The new location should be a model factory for future branches of the group. Considerable investments are also being made in the field of technology, in Big Product Mould Technology.
“One of the largest machines of the Benelux will be found here, with a shot volume of about 45 kilograms. Our production, which should serve the Benelux, Northern France, Western Germany and the UK, will therefore mostly focus on large products. Such as Big Box Maximus 850 L, which is meant for, among other things, fruit cultivation, or the plastic ClickPall for petrochemistry. The first products will be finished in the summer of 2017,” says Ludo Gielen.
The new branch in Beringen was designed by architect’s firm Wastiau & Co. “It will be a factory with plenty of light, and it will be pleasant to work there,” says Ludo Gielen. “The plant will consist of a production hall of 6,500 m2, outdoor storage of 3,500 m2, and a sales and innovation centre of 1,200 m2. The second floor will have an inspiring brainstorming space.”
