Bilgoraj, January 6, 1998
On that day, the first production line was launched at Model Opakowania Sp. z o.o. A packaging for champagne was then developed which has been produced in a refreshed design ever since. In 2023, having sold so far nearly 5.5 billion boxes Model’s first plant in Poland celebrates its 25th anniversary!
Thanks to innovations and investments tailored to the needs of the market, Model today delivers packaging not only in Poland, but also to Slovakia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Germany, France and Scandinavia. The company reaches customers from its three production plants located in Biłgoraj, Czosnów and Nowa Sól.
Krzysztof Jażdżyk, President of the Management Board of Model Opakowania Sp. z o.o., emphasizes: «25 years of our company represent a continuous development curve. The changes are visible in all areas of the company’s activity. The key to success is our team, as well as the excellent business relations we have been building with customers and suppliers for 25 years.»
25 years of Model in Biłgoraj translate into nearly PLN 270 million allocated for investments in machinery, infrastructure, as well as projects in the field of environmental protection and improving work comfort. The plant has implemented the shopfloor air conditioning system, installed dust filters, managed effectively production waste and modernized the heating, lighting and fire detection systems.
