Jindal Films Europe, a manufacturer of specialty biaxially oriented polypropylene film, has plans to increase metallizing and extrusion capabilities at its Brindisi, Italy-based site with the addition of new metallizer and BOPP lines.

A 10.5m orientation line will be installed by quarter four of 2016, which will increase capacity by more than 50,000 tons per year and further improve production flexibility. The Metallizer is expected to start-up in quarter two of 2016 and will add 10,000 tons of metallization capacity.

"This investment strategy underscores the confidence we have in our employees, our customers and our suppliers to aggressively grow the specialty films business,” says Scott Van Winter, CEO and executive vice president of Jindal Films. “We’re able to leverage exceptional technology and a solid asset base with a global presence, enabling us to provide solutions everywhere in the world."
