Bilcare Research to Expand its German Manufacturing Site
Bilcare Research AG, Allschwil, Switzerland, has been known for years as a strong and committed partner in the shrink films market. The product range extension with PET-G-films in 2011 was a major success. In order to continuously support the growth of this market and its customers Bilcare Research invests in a state-of-the-art extrusion- and stenter-line at the manufacturing site in Staufen, Germany.
Following intensive discussions, the company decided for SML Maschinengesellschaft, Lenzing, Austria, and Brückner Maschinenbau, Siegsdorf, Germany, as suppliers. This investment project will include, in addition to the two main aggregates, the construction of a new stenter-hall as well as the supporting infrastructure and will generate 15 new jobs.
„We are already planning for Q1-2016 with the new capacity and are looking forward to a further development of our business together with our customers and partners”, says Thomas Piwowarsky, Managing Director and Global Business Unit Head Specialty Films Solutions, Bilcare Research GmbH, Germany.
