Toray Plastics (America), Inc. is investing in a new, state-of-the-art 8.7 meter polypropylene film line.
The investment marks the next phase of Toray’s multi-year strategic plan, launched in 2016, to expand and automate production capabilities in order to meet customer demand and maintain its leadership position. The new capacity is targeted for packaging, label, medical and industrial applications. Toray anticipates start-up in 2020.
“Toray’s commitment to our customers is unwavering, and this expansion continues our path of innovation and growth,” says Christopher Roy, senior vice president and general manager, Torayfan Division.
Roy notes this expansion project includes the construction of a new building to house the OPP equipment. Previously completed projects include the construction of a second cogeneration system, automation throughout the plant, including a fully automated packaging line, and the construction of a 28,800-square-foot facility to house a new, high-speed 4.5-meter metallizer.
