Jindal Films Europe Announces New BOPP Line

LUXEMBOURG, LU | Jindal Films Europe, a manufacturer of specialty biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films, reports it will increase extrusion capabilities at its Virton site in Belgium. This expansion represents the next phase of a broad reinvestment strategy that was initiated in 2015 at the company’s facility in Brindisi, Italy.

A 10.5-m orientation line will be installed with a capacity of 50,000 tons/yr. The new asset will replace production lines currently in operation in Virton and is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter 2018.

“Virton is the most flexible plant to produce our wide range of specialty and new generation products,” says Serge François, Virton Site director, Jindal Films Europe. “The new orientation line will allow us to better serve our valued customers with end products that meet their evolving expectations in terms of product innovation, quality, and dimensions. In combination with the recently installed Global Technology Innovation Center, the Virton Site will be the launch platform for our next-generation products.”
