SIG has opened a Tech Centre, close to its packaging plant in Suzhou, China, to support customers who want to develop and implement new product concepts and market-ready packaging.

The centre is the second largest worldwide for SIG and meets internal and external technical training on aseptic filling machines and downstream lines. 

Faster to market

Rolf Stangl, CEO, SIG said Asia is a vital market for SIG and the Tech Centre will ensure its customers can realize opportunities faster, to choose the right product and packaging concept to meet consumer demand and grow their business.  

At our Tech Centre, we can expedite packaging development for our customers and carry out test fillings on a weekly basis, to ensure products are launched to market more quickly than before​,” he added. 

The 17,500m2​ building will manufacture filling technology, conduct filling tests for customers and offer training. 

The SIG centre will house the latest filling machines, food processing equipment and UHT systems, which can process products with a range of viscosities and pieces. 

Professional support

SIG will offer customers professional support on aseptic filling tests and product concepts. 

The Tech Centre also hosts SIG’s Asian filler and applicator assembly operation and two Global Technology departments: Research & Development and Engineering & Application. 

SIG’s Tech Centre has the highest standard as a green building and SIG is only the ninth industrial company with onsite manufacturing in China to earn the LEED Platinum standard with a total of 83 points – the second highest score in the entire country.
