CMS Hasche Sigle advises Huber Packaging Group on joint venture in Russia


The largest German manufacturer of tinplate packaging, Huber Packaging Group, is building a facility in the greater Moscow area with a Russian partner to produce tinplate packaging for the industrial chemicals sector there.

Huber Packaging Group will take management responsibility for the joint venture whose new holding company was established in the Netherlands. Production in Russia will commence at the beginning of 2008. Once the plant has reached the level of expansion currently planned, which will involve a substantial level of investment, it will employ 150 staff manufacturing high-quality packaging for paints and lacquers. A strategy of gradually opening up export markets in surrounding countries will be pursued. With this development Huber Packaging Group is continuing its expansion and taking advantage of the dynamic trends in high-growth markets to boost its international profile. After Austria and Hungary Russia operation will be Huber's third production facility abroad.
