Germany-based Treofan, a biaxially-oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film maker, has announced that it will consolidate its technical film business into a new electronics business unit.

The company’s capacitor film business and its new TreoPore microporous separator films business had previously been managed separately from one another. Mark Neville will become the executive vice president of the new combined group.

“This consolidation is another step forward in our realignment of internal structures and processes around customers’ needs and wishes,” said Peter Vanacker, CEO of Treofan, based in Raunheim, Germany. “We’ve combined our broad spectrum of expertise in the area of technical films into a single business unit, which will enable us to work even more intensively on developing innovative solutions together with our partners in the electronics industry.”

Recently the company also created separate business units for packaging films, labeling films, and tobacco films. These are headed by Yvo van Vliet, executive vice president of commercial operations.

Treofan employs around 1,100 people and operates four production sites in Germany, Italy, and Mexico.
