Coming on the heels of Constantia Teich’s 110th anniversary in early October, this investment will enable the group to acquire a new rolling mill powered by green electricity, as well as a new lacquering line. In addition to having a positive impact on the carbon footprint, the investment will secure the company’s supply chain through internal production: “We are now more independent and therefore more resistant to crises,” said Dr. Gerald Hummer, executive vice president of the aluminum division.
In the future, the new rolling capacity will enable Constantia Teich to produce a total of 90,000 tons of aluminum foil in Austria (up 30%), making the company the largest integrated producer in Europe. As the carbon footprint of Constantia Teich’s foil is significantly lighter than that of foils purchased from outside Europe, the new rolling mill will avoid emitting more than 100,000 tons of CO2.
