The company, located in Spain, expands production capacity and technical capabilities by acquiring a new 1,500m² building close to their historic location in Igorre, Vizcaya (Northern Spain), and installing new equipment.

The new equipment includes RIM (Reaction Injection Moulding) machines for production of PDCPD parts, large dimension presses (3 by 2.5 mtr), including one with horizontal opening, and a painting line. This expansion will also generate new hires and eventually employ 15 persons.

In order to cope with this big increase in consumption and in a continued effort to decrease the environmental footprint, Walter Pack has decided to switch their delivery systems from 200 liter-drums to 2,000 liter-reusable IBCs. This will add extra flexibility and productivity.

Walter Pack a DCPD resins moulder in the Iberia region, serving a variety of markets such as body panels for buses and coaches, esthetically shaped, weather- and high-tangential-wind-resistant SOS posts, buoys for the fishing industry, and very large parts for the windmill market, significantly reducing the “humming” noise. Walter Pack was the first European Telene moulder producing stylish exterior parts for coaches in partnership with Irizar. The SOS posts can be spotted on the side of many motorways in Spain, Ireland, Chile and Brazil.

Walter Pack is also active in India and in other regions of the world, either directly with their Pune, Maharashtra (India) based facility or via the NER-group, an association of 19 companies, mostly based in the Basque country, totaling a global presence of 1,700 people in 60 countries. They currently plan to open operations in Mexico.
