Ampacet is one of the companies that have continued investing in Europe during the difficult economic crisis during 2008-2013, still believing in this market & benefiting from a continuous growth rate in volume due to Ampacet’s highly competitive manufacturing sites with investments made as follows:

  • A very high investment in Dudelange, Luxembourg European Headquarters for +/- 35 Million $. Ampacet was not only adding capacity with the Dudelange plant, but it is reinforcing the European and Global network to maintain and increase our market leadership in Europe, Middle East & Africa
  • 6 new lines in Europe (Poland, Italy & UK)
  • Strategic investment for our local presence in MEA which Ampacet considered important to expand
  • Russian investment where Ampacet has a high market share, reinforcing our local leadership and continually improving on our services to the local markets

Ampacet’s most recent investment is in a new European distribution centre in the heart of Europe near to its new EMEA Headquarters & production plant in Dudelange, Luxembourg and its production plant in Messancy, Belgium.

Ampacet’s investments have been made at a critical time, but Ampacet wants to remain close to its strategic markets and the company wants to support the growth of its customers and satisfy their needs to the best of the company’s ability.
