Egypt: Mondi has acquired the paper bag converting lines from National Bag and Egypt Sack, two subsidiaries of Lafarge Cement Egypt, for an undisclosed sum. The production lines will increase Mondi’s capacity by around 150 – 180m bags/yr and strengthen its position in the Egyptian paper bag market. Local subsidiary Mondi Paper Bags already operates two plants in Egypt and with this acquisition will become a key supplier of paper bags to Lafarge Cement Egypt.

Claudio Fedalto, the chief operating officer of Mondi Paper Bags, said “We are excited to have signed a long-term supply agreement with Lafarge Cement Egypt and to servicing them locally in Egypt. The collaboration will offer Lafarge access to our latest innovations, industry expertise, strong plant network and customer service.”
