Critical investments were made at Ti Kft in Hungary to upgrade a 8.2 mt BoPP line to 5-layers that will increase Ti Europe current 5-layer film capacity to a total of 60,000 t/y, positioning itself N°1 in Europe.
The line will be equipped with the most recent technologies for a superior quality of the film produced and for energy saving purposes. Energy savings are predicted to be in the range of 25%.
With this new capacity Ti will reinforce significantly its market position to serve the label (specifically IML) as well as the food packaging industries. The 5-layer film technical advantages will also be used for other specific non-food applications.
“Our continuous investment in advanced technology and manufacturing capabilities further demonstrate Ti commitment to support its growing European customer base and partners” said Mr Valerio Garzitto, CEO of Ti Europe.
The start up of the upgraded line is scheduled on 1st June 2014.
