Newspapers in paper wraps
Ouest-France, the largest regional newspaper publisher in France, has purchased two new packaging lines from Buhrs in Zaandam. These Buhrs 3000 systems are used for packaging newspapers in paper wraps. “With this investment, Ouest-France is the first newspaper company to package its products in paper and not foil for shipping," says Buhrs managing director Dick Verheij. "Ouest-France is one of the first companies in France to follow this new environmental measure and thus send a signal to other shippers."
Five new Buhrs 6000 systems
BD myShopi, market leader in door-to-door communication in Belgium, recently moved into a new warehouse in Bornem. In this new central logistics hub of 16,000 square meters Buhrs has installed five new packaging lines. Every week these Buhrs 6000 systems pack advertising brochures and leaflets, which are distributed over 4.5 million mailboxes throughout Belgium. The new Buhrs machines can wrap the retail brochures in both paper or foil. ‘Here in Belgium we see a clear trend towards the preference for packaging in paper wrap’, said CEO Raf Lambrix.
