Koenig & Bauer Iberica plans production expansion with new assembly processes
Tuesday 05. April 2022 - In March the entire Koenig & Bauer Iberica team moved from its previous location in El Prat de Llobregat near Barcelona to Gav, 15km away. Here the company has two large assembly halls, a modern warehouse and two open, light-flooded mezzanines with office space.
The new production facility is also conveniently located for international visitors: it is only ten minutes away from the airport. It takes about 20 minutes to drive to the centre of Barcelona.
Koenig & Bauer Iberica is planning a significant expansion of production at the new site. To this end, new assembly processes are to be implemented, which can be perfectly integrated into the layout of the two halls with their six crane systems. In addition, space is available for training courses and demonstrations of modern die-cutting technology. The more modern environment will enable the company to further develop its potential, increase productivity and meet new goals and market demands.
Founded in 1940, the company specialised in the manufacture of automatic flatbed die-cutters in 1965. Iberica has been part of Koenig & Bauer since 2016. Within the group of companies, Iberica is responsible for the development, production, sales and service of medium- and large-format flatbed die-cutters for cardboard and corrugated packaging. Manufacturers of folding cartons and composite packaging all over the world rely on die-cutting technology from Koenig & Bauer Iberica.
