Gloucester Engineering Co. Ltd. delivered two stretch film lines in late 2009.
Malpack Ltd. of Toronto bought a cast stretch film line — the company's fifth from Gloucester Engineering. The new line will increase Malpack's capacity by 43.6 million pounds a year, making it the highest-capacity cast stretch film line in Canada, according to the machinery maker in Gloucester, Mass.
The line will be the first in North America to use NanoLayer feedblock technology from Cloeren Inc. of Orange, Texas. The machine will turn out strength film for hand and machine wrap in thicknesses of 40-200 gauge. The line will allow Malpack to sell film with increased performance at reduced thicknesses, according to Gloucester Engineering.
Lyndhurst, N.J.-based Sigma Stretch Film Corp. bought a five-layer agricultural stretch film line for its plant in Canada. Gloucester Engineering said it is the largest agriculture stretch film line in North America.
