Toppan USA Officially Opens Georgia Plant for Transparent Barrier Film Production
Toppan USA, Inc., a Griffin, Georgia-based subsidiary of Tokyo-based Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. has completed construction of its new Georgia plant, a site for the manufacture of transparent barrier films.
A grand opening ceremony for the plant was held on April 7, 2016.
This plant is the first transparent barrier film production site to be established by Toppan Printing outside of Japan. The plant will predominantly produce GL FILM, a leading brand in the global transparent barrier film market that responds to various needs in sectors including food, drinks, medical care, pharmaceuticals and industrial materials with the world’s highest level barrier performance. The opening of the Georgia plant will significantly bolster the company’s capacity to supply transparent barrier films. Toppan will enhance its ability to provide such films to North America and Europe, as well as to markets for which future growth is anticipated, such as Central and South America.
