i2r Packaging Solutions boosts production with on-going investments
Fuelled by strong growth in both UK and international markets, on-going investments in new high speed presses has seen i2r increase capacity of its foil products by more than 50% over the past 12 months. The company’s baking division also continues to experience growth with an additional three new presses being installed in January 2018 specifically for tulip muffin wrap production.
The Shropshire based firm, part of the Italian Laminazione Sottile Group, is the only UK manufacturer to provide the food industry with a single source for both aluminium foil containers and baking paper products.
i2r’s Jon West said, ‘We are currently seeing significant penetration across a number of key markets, especially overseas. The increased demand for aluminium and the infinite recyclability of our products has undoubtedly added to the momentum we are experiencing.
‘Our on-going investments form part of the company’s business expansion plans and growth ambitions, as well as future proofing our business and positively addressing the sustainability issues faced by food manufacturers globally.’
