The move highlights Treofan’s strategy to invest heavily in the latest technology to modernize its manufacturing plants. The new BOBST metallizer follows the installation of a 8.2-meter-wide BOPP-film line back in 2007, also in Mexico, and more recently in October 2015, the new 8.7-meter-wide BOPP-film line installed in its German plant.
Treofan is a high-end, specialty-BOPP film producer with a differentiated product portfolio including solutions for packaging, labels and tobacco industries as well as technical films for electronic applications. The Treofan group employs around 1,100 people around the world at four production sites in Germany, Italy and Mexico. The company’s products are sold in more than 90 markets worldwide.
The installation of this new BOBST K5000 machine adds to the impressive number of BOBST wide-web metallizers already sold. This reinforces the trend in the market for film producers to produce wider and wider metallized film, which results in high output and reductions in cost leading to higher productivity.
This addition to the BOBST wide-web metallizers already in the market again demonstrates BOBST’s ability to be at the forefront of innovation in the wide web market. The system is equipped to run large diameters at high speeds while maintaining the cool temperature of the film and protecting the barrier.
Says Treofan COO Allan Crighton, "The purchase of this new BOBST metallizer is in line with Treofan’s strategy to grow in the Americas. The new metallizer allows us to further strengthen our position as one of the leading suppliers of high-performance BOPP films in the region."
