Flexfilm: New blown film extrusion line

UK polyethylene film manufacturer Flexfilm has invested £1m in a new blown film extrusion line for its plant in Cheshire. The new line from Italian manufacturer CMG will raise Flexfilm’s production scapacity by 54% to 10,000tpa. It will also allow it to produce films in widths up to 2,600mm, opening up markets for bigger and heavier reels. Flexfilm’s site in Winsford has been extended by approximately 500 sq metres to accommodate the new machinery. The investment will also create a handful of jobs at the firm, which currently employs 24 staff. Over the last three years Flexfilm has invested heavily in its Northern Ireland sister company, Jordan Plastics, adding extrusion and slitting equipment.
