Blue Cap subsidiary Uniplast sells property no longer required for operations and bolsters research and development

Munich, 13 December 2021 Uniplast Knauer GmbH & Co. KG (Uniplast), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Blue Cap AG, has sold a building and premises no longer in use in Dettingen/Erms. The purchase price is in the low single-digit-million range. The building was previously used to recycle the company’s own production waste and to create secondary materials. By optimising internal processes, it is possible to introduce recycling activities at the main plant.

The proceeds from property sales should be reinvested in modern laboratory equipment in particular in order to provide greater support to research and development activities. Andreas Doster, managing director of Uniplast, is passionate about sustainable packaging solutions: “Uniplast is investing in R&D initiatives. We want to provide impetus on the market and develop packaging that stands the test of time.” At its ultra-modern research and development laboratory, the company is working continuously on new ideas and innovations to take account of the need to reduce the use of plastics and increase the use of recyclable packaging.
