Loparex, a leading global producer of release liners and engineered films, announced today that it had successfully completed the integration of specialty film producer Infiana Group into its organization. The integration process, which began in September 2019, focused on maximizing synergies between the two companies, building on existing strengths while simultaneously streamlining organizational structures and processes to better serve customer needs.
LOCALLY POSITIONED, GLOBALLY ORIENTED
Loparex produces liner solutions through global segment teams covering the following key markets: Graphics, Tapes & Converting, Building & Construction, Healthcare, Hygiene, Labels, Composites, and Developing Applications. These segments are served by an agile global production network with strategically located manufacturing sites in the United States, Germany, Holland, China, and India.
Each location offers local production options and in-depth technical expertise, while leveraging know-how and capabilities from the greater Loparex organization for added flexibility and reliability of supply. Additionally, a new matrix-based market approach and newly designed sales structure allow for faster decisions, reduced time to market, and more efficient service.
“Loparex and Infiana have been trusted market suppliers for decades because we share a commitment to quality and customer-focused solutions,” says Simon Medley, CEO of Loparex. “The new, integrated Loparex organization builds on this legacy by further optimizing how we do business, and by giving our customers a greater range of options and capabilities to meet their specific needs.”
COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION PROVIDER
The newly expanded Loparex portfolio encompasses direct coated and poly coated paper liners alongside direct coated, poly coated, blown and cast film solutions. A broad range of substrates and paper types, coupled with in-house embossing, coating, slitting, and printing capabilities, allows Loparex to provide the optimal match for any application. The company also offers unique solutions such as discreet and ultra-lightweight pouch films, liners with permanent antistatic equipment, and air egress liners for graphic applications.
Loparex’s global production and process development network leverages the expertise of two technology centers – in Cary, USA, and Forchheim, Germany – to support customers’ more complex application needs.
“The successful integration of Infiana into the Loparex family completes an important stage in our journey towards becoming the release liner solutions provider of choice for customers,”adds Medley. “We now look forward to beginning the next step in this journey as we continue to develop as an organization and grow our market-leading value offering to our customers.”
