Xito to double its PET sheet production capacity

Xito de CV has invested $4m in a new PET sheet extrusion line which will almost double its current production capacity of 19 million pounds a year.

Xito owner and chief executive Norman Wright was quoted by Plastics News as saying that it would increase its sheet production capacity by 17 million pounds a year with the new line, acquired from a European supplier whose name was not disclosed.

Of the total Xito’s production, 85% is for the Mexican market, 10% is exported to the United States and 5% to Central America.
Xito produces sheet from recycled or virgin PET with or without a sealable PE/EVOH barrier.
