Domo Chemicals, Leuna/Germany, is discontinuing part of its production of biaxially oriented polyamide films (BOPA) in Germany. As the company announced in a press release, the third production line for these films at the plant in Leuna, Saxony-Anhalt, will be closed. The shutdown is to take place as early as August of this year. According to Domo, the reason for the closure is the current worldwide overcapacity of nylon films.

The company did not disclose whether the closure will also result in redundancies of employees. The remaining production at the Leuna plant is not affected by this step and is to continue unchanged. Domo also announced that it would continue to produce BOPA films at its Italian plant in Cesano Maderno.

Despite the closure, nylon film production remains an important business area according to the company. In the current corona crisis, the material has again underlined its importance for medical technology, the pharmaceutical industry and food packaging.
