Irish packaging company Invests in Extrusion Line for PET sheets

Published on October 12, 2017 by in PET News

Ireland’s Quinn Packaging has installed a new PET sheet extrusion line – supplied by SML Maschinen. The new line comes at EUR 3 million and incorporates Erema’s “Vacurema” recycling technology. It can produce food grade plastic sheets that has an increased volume of recycled raw materials (PET bottle flakes).

The new technology will help realize Quinn Packaging’s Eco-Innovation initiative that aims to manufacture environment friendly products and reduce the company’s carbon footprint.

With the new PET sheet capacity, Quinn Packaging is well positioned to increase supply to packaging companies (for thermoforming applications) and food companies (for form, fill and seal applications).

Quinn Packaging also expects to supply PET sheets to European countries, especially supermarkets and food processing companies that are keen on environment friendly packaging.

More details on PET sheets and thermoform markets will be shared at CMT’s PET Sheets & Thermoforms on 27-28 February, 2018 in Cambridge, UK.
