Spanish plastics film extruder Poligal SA has started construction on its 30 million euro ($35.3 million) biaxially oriented polypropylene extrusion line at a new plant in Poland.
The company states that initially the new plant, located in Skarbimierz — 60 kilometers south of Wrocław — will include an 8.7 meter wide 5-layer Brückner BOPP extrusion line with a production capacity of 40,000 metric tons per year of BOPP film.
The line is expected to be fully operational by the third quarter of 2016.
Poligal highlights that the new plant's location offers Poligal the possibility of being only 2 hours away from Germany, as well as being at the heart of the fast growing flexible packaging market in Poland where it already has operations.
Poligal has also announced that its ongoing project for a new cast PP extrusion 4.8 meters wide Reifenhäuser line in its plant in Arcos, Portugal is moving forward as planned and says the line is expected to be fully operational from June 2015.
Poligal, based in Narón, Spain, is part of the Spanish family-owned Grup Peralada which has a diverse range of commercial interests including hotels and wine.
