Schur Pack Germany opts again for innovative KBA Rapida technology

Schur Pack Germany based in Büchen, Schleswig-Holstein, recently placed an order for three KBA Rapidas in medium and large format with a total of 29 printing and finishing units for its new production facility in nearby Gallin. Schur International is an international team of 15 companies offering packaging, packaging machines, packaging systems and know-how. It has approx. 800 staff employed in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, France and the USA. Founded in 1846 by Johan Wilhelm Schur, the company began as a printshop for labels and other printed products in Horsens, Denmark. Today it is one the oldest family-run packaging firms and managed by Hans Schur, the fifth generation of the founding family. Schur Pack Germany in Büchen produces food and non-food packaging for prominent brands in various industries.

Three large-format Rapida presses and one medium-format Rapida have been in operation in Büchen since 2005/2006 while two Rapida presses have also been a feature of the pressroom at Schur Pack Denmark in Horsens since 2012 replacing four older presses from another manufacturer. The recent order comprises again of two sixcolour large-format presses with extensive automation and control technology. One of the two Rapida 145 presses features an extra coater and the other press will be configured as a two-coater press. These two plus the eight-colour Rapida 106 with twin coaters and ColdFoil Infigo SF110 will again be embedded in comprehensive substrate logistics.
