Constantia Flexibles Opens Film R&D Center

VIENNA, AUSTRIA | Constantia Flexibles has opened a new, state-of-the-art Competence Center for the research and development of polymer films and film laminates for flexible packaging.

The Center is located at the company’s second largest production plant in Weiden, Germany. The Center represents a multi-million investment for upgrading equipment and infrastructure of the existing local R&D facilities. It has 15 experts working on close to 100 projects every year. Their focus is on supporting product and sales managers by analyzing and testing the composition of the latest film products; on developing new film formulations with our raw material suppliers in order to obtain the optimal quality and meet stringent food contact legislation in a transparent way; and on developing mock-ups of in-house innovations for customers to meet long-term trends such as more recycling-friendly packaging.

“[This Center] is a clear signal that we will support our customers around the globe with innovative film products,” says Gerold Riegler, board member for Constantia Flexibles. “In addition, we are currently planning our own lab-scale film production line for 2016 with the installment of an extruder.”
