Sharp Interpack: New extrusion hall

UK thermoformer Sharp Interpack is continuing the major redevelopment of its site in Bridgwater, Somerset, with a new film extrusion hall.
Two years ago the company embarked on a plan to bring its extrusion, thermoforming and warehousing operations side-by-side. In January this year it moved all its thermoforming operations into a new building under a £6.5m investment that included new machinery.
The new extrusion hall is designed to house two machines, one of which will be installed in the third quarter of this year. A new Reifenhauser machine has been ordered, which will add approximately 6,500tpa of PET film extrusion capacity.
Sharp Interpack is a leading manufacturer of rigid packaging such as fruit punnets, hinge packs and trays for ready meals, confectionery, bakery and meat produce. It has another site in Aylesham, Kent, that has also received major investment in the last three years. The £60m turnover firm employs 474 staff in total.
