Gloucester Engineering Co. (GEC) announces that they have sold two new 8 up cast stretch film lines to Scientex in Malaysia. It will be their highest output stretch film line ever sold in the Asia-Pacific region.

This is the third time in five years that Scientex has expanded their production capacity, and each time they have used GEC equipment. Scientex now will now have 5 complete GEC lines in their facility, believed to now have the most stretch film capacity under one roof in the world. Their production is expected to reach over 150,000 mt/year.

The two new lines come with GEC’s latest update to the 1002DS winder for thin film production, a machine that now surpasses all winding industry standards. The film produced can routinely be as thin as 8uM without any need for special raw materials.

Scientex’s Managing Director, Mr. PJ Lim, claims, “the uptime, output, and efficiency offered by the GEC machines allows us to successfully pursue our low cost, high production model, and we are excited to continue to partner with GEC in our quest to become the world leader in stretch film production.”

Carl Johnson, President of GEC, agrees: “we proudly continue to support Scientex in all their production equipment needs. Their growth joined with our 50 years of experience has been a recipe for success so far, and we look forward to continuing to do business with them.”
