Treofan Germany GmbH & Co. KG, Raunheim, manufacturer of specialty biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films, is investing USD 45m in a new 5-layer, 10.4m orientation line at its Americas plant in Zacapu, Mexico. The new asset, due to begin operation in the fourth quarter of 2018, will result in a net capacity increase of some 30,000 tons per year or 50% of the plant's current capacity as an existing small line from 1992 will be mothballed.

Treofan has grown its Americas business consistently over the past 20 years with investments so far totaling USD 100m in two lines of 8.5 respecively 8.2 meters. "The additional asset represents the next phase of the Group's reinvestment strategy which was initiated in 2014 at our facility in Neunkirchen, Germany", comments Jon Knight, CEO Treofan Americas. "The advanced capacity and capabilities will enable us to continue to grow with our valued customers in our key markets."

Allan Crighton, COO Treofan Americas, adds: "We have been working in close cooperation with Brückner to design a line capable of producing our current and future specialty BOPP film products at more than ten meters wide and at speeds of up to 600 meters per minute building on the experience gained with the 8.2m five layer Brückner line which has now been running for almost ten years."
