Germany-based plastic packaging company Paccor International GmbH is increasing capacity at two sites in the Netherlands by investing 11 million euros in the country.

Paccor is owned by U.S. investment firm Sun Capital Partners.

Zell, Germany-based Paccor is investing in two sites in the country — in Standdaarbuiten and Nijkerk — by extending buildings and buying new equipment, including new thermoforming machinery and data collection technology.

Chris Hart, managing director for Paccor's Food Service Europe division, said the work will increase Paccor's capacity in the Netherlands by 50 percent and is due to be completed in September.

Paccor is investing in the Netherlands because its position means it can service western, southern and central Europe, he told European Plastics News. The United Kingdom and the Nordic countries are also easily accessible, he added.
