The Schattdecor Group, having confidence in the growth of the Latin American market, announces to increase its impregnation capacity in Brazil.
Following the policy and strategy of sustainable growth, the Schattdecor Group continues to invest strongly and consistently in its worldwide production sites under the motto “One source. Unlimited solutions.”
In 2018, the Schattdecor group simultaneously invested worldwide in the expansion of the impregnation facilities and production halls at its locations in Italy, Brazil, Russia, and China.
Flavio Lufchitz, managing director of Schattdecor Brazil: “We have just finished the expansion of our impregnation facility in São José dos Pinhais, where the focus was on increasing the inventory area, optimizing the internal layout and adjusting the necessary utilities for the installation of new production equipment. Included in the planned investments for this year is the purchase of a resin reactor, in order to create self-sufficiency when working with our raw materials. Our next step is to invest in a new, modern impregnation channel, with which we can create additional capacity and offer our customers even more first-hand service, true to our motto: ‘One Source. Unlimited Solutions’.”
In 2018, the Schattdecor Group produced 300 million square meters of impregnated paper, including more than 70 million square meters generated in Brazil. With an increase in capacity, Schattdecor Brazil will be able to start impregnation on its fourth channel. With this line, the worldwide number of Schattdecor impregnation channels will grow to 16.
According to Lufchitz, the increase in capacity and competence shows that the Group continues its sustainable growth strategy, with the aim of supplying customers worldwide with the extensive Schattdecor product portfolio in the usual Schattdecor quality, both quickly and on demand.
“This investment package is a sign that Schattdecor believes in and is preparing for the demands of the growing market,” said Flavio Lufchitz.
The majority of aforementioned investments will occur during the year 2019 and are expected to be completed in the first months of 2020.
