Holfeld is cutting it ...


... with the introduction of a new slitter/re-winder

There is little doubt that with two consecutive materials technology successes under its belt at Starpack 2014 for rPETeCO and 2015 for Hydrozorb H-PET and a Worldstar win for its rPETeCO lightweight, low carbon eCOPET material, Holfeld is setting the agenda for materials technology and is becoming a preferred choice for roll film.

To meet an exponential growth in roll film sales Holfeld has purchased and installed a new slitter-re-winder for is production faciility at Arklow, Co Wicklow in Ireland.

This new acquisition is part of the Company's drive to increase capacity and maximise production efficiencies and reduce lead times to meet the growth in its roll film production.

Commenting on the purchase, Frank Coleman, Site Director said ' the strategy for the purchase was to meet the stringent demands of our growing market in FFS customers who enjoy premier customer care and excellent pro-active service combined with the expertise shown in our new and award-winning materials innovations'.

Holfeld Plastics has always been noted for its industry-leading thermoforming and cutting characteristics of r-PET sheet and for its more recent development in rPETeCO skinpack applications.

The new investment makes this an easier job, with faster job set up, improved flexibility leading to greater efficiencies and reduced waste.
