Cosmo Films Ltd. has a new president of its U.S. operations and has been investing in its U.S. production facilities, the company said.
The appointment of Sandeep Dutta, who has been with the company for nine years, to the position “forms an integral part of the company's strategic plan to strengthen its position in the North American market and further its footprints,” Cosmo said.
Cosmo makes biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) film and calls itself one of the largest exporters of BOPP films from India as well as the largest manufacturer of thermal lamination films in the world.
“In his new role as president U.S. operations, Sandeep is responsible for growing the business with enhanced products and service deliveries,” Cosmo CEO Pankaj Poddar said in a statement.
Cosmo also indicated the company has invested $1 million for capacity expansion and upgrades at its site in Hagerstown, Md. That location makes thermal lamination films in BOPP, PET and nylon.
Cosmo also operates a plant in Addison, Ill., and has five warehouses in the United States and Canada.
