Illig expands production capacity to Romani

Thermoforming machine maker Illig will build a new production site in Sibiu, Romania, outside of its base in Germany. It will make thermoforming lines from its product range to ensure increasing market demands can be met, according to Dr. Heinrich Sielemann, Illig’s Managing Director. In 2019, the first office buildings and production halls will be constructed in a first construction phase on an area of 60,000 sq m at the Șura Mică industrial park, located just north of Sibiu.

The Heilbronn-headquartered firm has already started recruiting on-site personnel “with the intent to prepare the new staff members at the central site for their new tasks”.

Illig says that during the last few years the Sibiu region has developed into one of the fastest growing economic centres of Romania, with many German and Austrian companies setting up in Sibiu, the former Hermannstadt. The city has a population of around 150,000 inhabitants and it is optimally linked to the most important long-distance connections by road, railroad and air, says Illig.

Illig supplies thermoforming machines and moulds for thermoforming of plastic materials and of solutions for the packaging industry. Set up 70 years ago, the family-owned business is locally present in markets around the world with branch offices and sales agencies in more than 80 countries.
