Third W&H Blown Film Line in Grand Rapids
Pregis Invests USD 6 Million
Pregis North America, Deerfield, IL/USA, is announcing yet another USD 6 million investment in its Pregis Films facility located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
This latest investment is for a third multilayer Windmoeller & Hoelscher (W&H) blown film line to address growing demands for output. It is in addition to the USD 23 million outlay for the first two, five-layer W&H lines, converting equipment and expanded production space, made between 2016 and 2018.

In addition to the three W&H lines, the 90,000 square foot Grand Rapids manufacturing facility also houses four state-of-the-art multilayer blown film extrusion lines and film lab.
