MILTON, WI | Charter NEX Films announces the purchase of two new Windmoeller & Hoelscher (W&H) three-layer blown film lines to be installed in its Milton, WI, facility. Both lines are expected to be operational by year end. This is the first of several additions and upgrades Charter NEX is planning as it continues to leverage its expertise in high performance blown film manufacturing.
“With our recent merger and the strong support of our ownership group, we believe that the time is right to expand and upgrade our Milton plant,” says Kathy Bolhous, CEO. “This expansion reinforces our commitment to provide our customers with unparalleled quality, service, and technical support.”
