American Kuhne: New Blown Film Initiative
American Kuhne was founded January 1997 in partnership with Kuhne GmbH Germany. Over the years American Kuhne has become a leading provider of extruders and systems in all single screw extrusion markets. With this experience, the company is poised to offer the marketplace advanced blown film technology. All blown film equipment will be designed and manufactured in the Kuhne Group headquarters in St. Augustin, Germany. American Kuhne will provide sales, service, and spare parts for the installed and commissioned equipment operating in North America, out of their headquarters in Ashaway, Rhode Island.
In support of this effort, American Kuhne has hired Tom Helming as the Vice President of Blown Film Systems. With extensive blown film and converting experience, Helming spent over 25 years at Gloucester Engineering Company in both product and sales management positions. As Vice President, Blown Film Systems, he is responsible for all business development activities for Kuhne’s blown film technology in North America.
