Alltub invests in two new tube lines
In order to further expand its production capacities and capabilities, and to further improve production efficiencies, the Alltub Group is installing two new aluminium tube production lines and a new laminate tube printing machine at its plants in Italy and Germany in 2021.
The Alltub Group is pursuing a global modernisation programme and thus responding to an increased demand for its products even during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new aluminium tube lines will be deployed at Alltub’s plants in Cividate al Piano (Italy) and Kirchheimbolanden (Germany) and are intended to significantly expand the production capacities and capabilities of the world’s market leader in the field of collapsible aluminium tubes.
Alltub’s plant in Italy is also the birthplace of the Alltub Group’s multi-award winning green tube, produced from >95% PCR aluminium. Alltub’s sustainable aluminium green tubes, which are fully recycled and fully recyclable, have been awarded the European Tube Manufacturer’s Association (ETMA) tube of the year 2020, as well as the 2021 WorldStar Global Packaging award of the World Packaging Organisation (WPO) in the category: Packaging Materials & Components.
With the purchase of these two new aluminium tube lines, Alltub is continuing its long-standing close partnership with Hinterkopf. The laminate printing machine will be installed at Alltub’s specialist laminate tube production plant in Langenfeld, Germany.
“Thanks to the broad positioning of our Group, our sales in 2020 were resilient and we are currently continuing to record a growing order book. That’s why we decided to invest in the new lines,” reports Mark Köllmann, CEO of Alltub.
“Currently, the Alltub Group manufactures about 1.6 billion units per year on 75 lines, which are delivered to more than 750 customers located in over 50 counties around the world from the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics and
