Smurfit Kappa Invests In Mexico

Smurfit Kappa has been increasing production capacity in the country by investing more than $350 million in the last five years. 

The Mexican economy is estimated to grow up to 3.0 percent both this year and next, boosted by increased manufacturing investment. 

Smurfit Kappa’s latest $12 million investment in its Tijuana plant includes new machinery and process upgrades that will reportedly increase both printing quality and efficiency. 

Laurent Sellier, Smurfit Kappa CEO of the Americas, commented: 

“Mexico is an important market for Smurfit Kappa,” said Laurent Sellier, Smurfit Kappa CEO of the Americas. “We have invested substantial resources both in paper machines and corrugated plants while increasing our network to support the country’s economy and our customers’ needs.”

Smurfit Kappa has operated in Mexico since 1957 and has had a presence in the northern Baja California region for more than 10 years.
