Romar: Investment in more coex film capacity

Film producer Romar Packaging of Leeds has invested more than £500,000 in a CMG three-layer blown film line. The company, part of the Roberts Mart Group, expects to increase output by 1,750 tonnes a year. As well as providing additional production for current customer demand, Romar and Roberts Mart are planning to take the increased capacity into new sectors in collation shrink packaging, including bottled water and soft drinks, toilet tissue and kitchen rolls.
Much of the film will be converted by Roberts Mart where it can be printed with print repeats of up to 1,350 mm in up to 10 colours.
The new line is the third coex line to go into the factory, and Romar plans to develop new products as lower cost replacements for monolayer films.
The film line is part of a wider investment by Romar, which has also bought a new reclaim machine for handling the trim and machine waste, two high speed doors to control the production atmosphere and further ancillary equipment to improve production.
