“W&H is privileged to be working closely with TC Transcontinental Packaging on strengthening their position in the flexible packaging market,” says Andrew Wheeler, president of Windmoeller & Hoelscher North America. “Many of the companies TC Transcontinental acquired were longstanding W&H customers and we are delighted to continue servicing and supporting them with our technologies.”
The first line is an 87-in., 9-layer VAREX II and is the first barrier line from W&H that will be running at Transcontinental Whitby. The second line is a 102-in., 3-layer VAREX II with a Filmatic II S surface winder and will join existing 3- and 5-layer lines for running PE films.
“We are proud to partner with an innovative industrial company such as W&H to help us achieve new heights in our product and service offering,” says Dustin Dyer, senior vp-Shrink & Extrusion at TC Transcontinental Packaging. “The new lines will allow us to increase our productivity and be more flexible while keeping in mind our environmental impact.”
