Atlas: Big film slitter contract in China

Valmet Converting’s UK-based Atlas division has completed its biggest-ever sales contract in China. The order for the Jiangsu Shuangliang Packing Material Company was one 6,7 m wide and three 8,3 m wide primary film slitters, worth approximately US$10 million.
Jiangsu Shuangliang is a manufacturer of industrial air-conditioning equipment. It is entering plastics film production with four BOPP film production lines in September 2004. The four Atlas film slitters will be running at up to 1,200 m/min processing up to 120,000 tonnes of BOPP film per year. Most of the film produced will be destined for the packaging industry, for wrapping a wide range of consumer goods for both the domestic and export markets. The project also represents the biggest ever single investment in BOPP film production lines in the world. This company will become one of the biggest producers of BOPP film in China by 2005.
