Research and development centres are in fashion! After DS Smith and Fedrigoni, it is now the paper and packaging manufacturer Saica’s turn to inaugurate its R&D and innovation center, on its 80th anniversary. Located at the El Burgo de Ebro mill (see photo) in Spain, this new 4,000 m2 entity will work for the group’s four divisions, namely the manufacture of recycled paper for corrugated board (Saica Paper), waste management and environmental services (Saica Natur), corrugated packaging (Saica Pack) and flexible packaging (Saica Flex). The Spanish group also unveiled its new automated reel warehouse, located in Burgo de Ebro (Zaragoza, Spain). It serves the mill’s three paper machines and has a total capacity of up to 65,000 tonnes of paper. More than 26,000 reels are stored there. The Saica Group, with more than 10,000 employees, achieved consolidated revenue of €4,394 million in 2022.
