Italian polyethylene film producer Pansac International srl is continuing to operate under insolvency administration after the failure of a sale process earlier this year.

The company, which has been under insolvency administration since December 2011, was created from the restructuring of Nuova Pansac's PE films business. Under the terms of the rearrangement reached in November 2010, most debts remained with Nuova Pansac, with business continuing under the Pansac International name.

Four of the original five plants are still running and there are orders for "several months", according to a statement by Massimo Meneghetti, secretary of the Femca Cisl trade union in Venice, which was published on June 5 by the local newspaper La Nuova Venezia. The company has operating plants in Mira, Ravenna, Zingonia and Marghera. The fifth plant in Portogruaro is no longer operating.

Marco Cappelletto, the insolvency administrator for Mira-based Pansac International, had been seeking a three-month extension of the special layoff conditions upon their expiry on June 22, the newspaper reported.

Information on Pansac International's website and in the Registro Imprese public records shows that Cappelletto faces a difficult situation in finding a solution for Pansac International.

In January, he invited offers for apartments, houses and land owned by Pansac International. In February, Cappelletto invited tenders for the operating units of the company.

The local La Nuova Venezia newspaper reported Cappeletto as saying tenders offered by the April 10 deadline had been "completely out of line with the value of the assets offered." He received two bids for the Mira operation, one for Zingonia, one for Ravenna and one for land on the former fifth production site in Portogruaro.

Following a meeting with the ministry for economic development in Rome, it was decided to issue a further tender involving separation of the business from property and leasing of facilities.

No announcements have since been made on the sale process.
