NewZNew (Chandigarh) : Cosmo Films Limited, a leading global speciality firm manufacturing bi-axially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) has announced plans to install a new 10.4 mtr BOPP line by early 2017. The line has already been ordered and will increase the company’s annual BOPP production capacity from 140k to 200k MT.
The new production line will be installed at the Karjan plant site near Vadodara, an existing facility with the company which already houses BOPP lines, extrusion coating & chemical coating lines and a metallizer. The new line that is yet to be installed is the most advanced line available in the market today in terms of its width and output. This high speed line equipped with automated changeovers will lead to an increase in power savings thus maximising overall operational efficiencies.
Mr. Pankaj Poddar, CEO, Cosmo Films Ltd said, “We are anticipating a strong demand for BOPP films in the coming years especially from the FMCG sector which prompts us to expand our BOPP production capacity.”
He further added, “The output for the production unit intends to be used for both domestic and export markets.” Our expansion plans are also aligned with government’s Make in India project which aims at boosting home grown manufacturing companies. Cosmo Films remains committed in its efforts to develop the sector and set new industry benchmarks.”
