Smurfit Kappa continues to strengthen its presence in Mexico

Smurfit Kappa, one of the world’s leading paper-based packaging firms, has opened a new plant in Tijuana, Mexico, demonstrating its long-term commitment to the country.


The new folding carton plant will strengthen the company’s footprint in the Baja California region and neighbouring Northern Mexico states.


The new Tijuana plant, which began operating last month, uses state-of-the-art technology to produce folding carton packaging solutions including boxes and trays. Diverse folding techniques are used to produce both flat and pre-glued products that meet customer’s needs in both the supply chain and retail environment.


Operating in Mexico for over 40 years, Smurfit Kappa produces an innovative range of sustainable packaging solutions for sectors including consumer electronics, industrial, medical and food.


Speaking at the opening of the new plant, Eduardo Rubio, vice president of packaging for Northern Mexico, said: "The inauguration of this important operation reflects the Smurfit Kappa Group´s long- term commitment to Mexico and its confidence in the growth of the country´s economy and its markets.


“We are confident that this plant and the high quality products we produce will contribute to the growth of our customers’ business in this region.”


The new Tijuana plant is the third of its type in Mexico, where it already operates one folding plant in Cerro Gordo and another in Naucalpan. This is Smurfit Kappa’s latest investment in Mexico and follows on from the unveiling of the PM6 paper machine in the Los Reyes Paper Mill last year and an extensive converting plant modernisation project.
