Siegwerk has completed modernization activities at its Annemasse, France, site, the company’s second largest Center of Excellence for packaging inks and coatings in Europe.
End of May 2023, employees and local authorities came together to celebrate the reopening of the revamped facility.
Apart from large-scale modifications to the administration building including the modernization of offices, meeting rooms and sanitary facilities, the recent renovations in Annemasse also included the renewal of the façade, showcasing the bold Siegwerk branding. The entire renovation project already started in November 2021, but had to be partially paused due to the pandemic.
The Annemasse site is one of 15 Centers of Excellence worldwide that manufacture Siegwerk’s basic inks and coatings in a standardized process. With a production capacity of more than 25,000 tons per year, it accounts for 10 percent of the Siegwerk group’s annual output. Today, the French site is home for 275 employees and counts as Siegwerk’s European leading location for water-based and inkjet solutions. As a modern technical center, it combines R&D, production and testing capacities under one roof.
