The Klöckner Pentaplast Group has begun construction of its first manufacturing facility in China. The new site at Suzhou will produce packaging films for the growing domestic Chinese market. The first phase of production capacity will focus on transverse-direction oriented shrink label films.
The 12,000m2 manufacturing site will house state-of-the-art production equipment, high-tech production control systems, and an R&D laboratory. It will increase Klöckner Pentaplast’s global shrink film capacity by 6,000 tonnes. The $29.5 million (€22.5 million) investment is due for completion in the first quarter of 2013 and is expected to employ 100 people.
