Klöckner Pentaplast adds production capacity in Asia, Americas

The Klöckner Pentaplast Group has announced it will add to its global production capacity for transverse-direction oriented shrink-label films.
Primarily used for full- or partial-body shrink-sleeve applications, the new shrink film capacity will be located at the company’s Rayong, Thailand, and Rural Retreat, VA, manufacturing facilities. In addition, PVC production capacity will be added to its Rayong, Thailand site.

Klöckner Pentaplast is investing $37 Mio USD (€27.4 Mio) for this expansion, which includes two tentering lines and PVC production machinery. Sixty-four employees will be added worldwide. The new tentering lines will produce high-performance PETG and PVC shrink films and will add 15,000 tons (33 Mio pounds) of shrink-film capacity to the company’s existing global production.

Klöckner Pentaplast is the only shrink-label films and PVC producer with manufacturing sites located in the Americas, Asia, and Europe. Startup is targeted for early 2011.
