ESPOO, FINLAND — Walki Group is to expand its production network in Europe by opening a new manufacturing plant in Wroclaw, Poland. The new plant, which is to commence its production during the third quarter of 2013, will be Walki's third production site in Poland.

The Finnish company makes protective packaging and technical and laminates, including facings for polyurethane insulation materials.

Initially, the plant will focus on serving the forest industry and consumer packaging businesses, Walki said in a 25 March news release. The company will invest almost 10 million euros ($12.8 million) in the project, and the plant will employ about 50 people during the start-up phase.

"With this investment, Walki is showing its strong commitment to its fast growing customer base in Central and Eastern Europe by providing more efficient and sustainable supply chain solutions and better customer service capabilities," said Leif Frilund, President and CEO.
