Film manufacturing is scheduled to commence in the final quarter of 2016. The set up will operate within Flex Films Europa’s facility in Wrzesnia, Poland with WaveFront Technology Europe leading the sales and marketing activities.
Flex Films Europa is an indirectly wholly owned subsidiary of Uflex – one of India’s largest flexible packaging company, which has expanded its film manufacturing footprints into Poland back in 2012 after venturing out in UAE, Mexico, Egypt and subsequently in Kentucky, USA.
Ashok Chaturvedi, chairman and managing director, Uflex, said: “This is an important geographical extension of our existing relationship with WaveFront Technology. We have built up an excellent working relationship in India and we anticipate working closely with the WaveFront Europe team to increase market penetration and new product development in the years ahead. The ties with WaveFront will further enhance our ‘Speed to Market Reach’ in Europe – one of the core pillars of our global business strategy that has always given us the competitive edge.”
Andrew Stevenson, managing partner of WaveFront Technology Europe, added: “It has been a key strategic goal of the business to start manufacturing Fresnel lens films in Europe for our European customers, for all the lead time and logistical benefits that will follow. Uflex’s focus on quality and service matches our values at WaveFront Technology Europe and working with the world’s leading supplier of packaging films will provide significant process benefits.”
