Klöckner Pentaplast Expands at Site in Germany

MONTABAUR, GERMANY | Klöckner Pentaplast reports is a capacity expansion at the Gendorf, Germany, film production site. The expansion will have multiple polymer capabilities to meet what company says is the growing demand of the shrink label marketplace and will begin production in early third quarter 2016, with completion scheduled for the first quarter of 2017.

Phil Heyworth, group VP Labels, says, “The additional capacity, multi-polymer capabilities, shorter lead times, and local production are in the continued support of our customers and the overall growth of the marketplace. The opportunity to create standard and differentiated products, such as more sustainable or digital print-receptive film products, will enhance our overall capabilities and manufacturing flexibility.”

Company says it will continue to expand the product portfolio with two new shrink label film product launches scheduled for 2016 that will address unmet market and direct customer needs. These products will also be produced at the expanded Gendorf facility.
