Tredegar to expand elastic laminates manufacturing units in US
Tredegar Film Products, a global manufacturer of plastics and laminates, is set to expand its North American manufacturing capacity for elastic laminates for personal care applications.
In response to increased demand for elastic laminate products for adult incontinence and baby care applications, the company is investing to expand and modernize one of the existing lines in its Terre Haute, Indiana plant to enable production of its FlexAire products. The company expects this additional capacity to be fully operational by the end of the second quarter of 2015, the company said in a press release.
Alvaro Vaselli, vice president of consumer care at Tredegar, “Our customers have been overwhelmingly positive about our new product launches under the FlexAire brand. These new products offer innovative features that respond to growing consumer demand for higher softness, better fit, comfort, and breathability. Tredegar Film Products has a track record of supplying innovative high-quality personal care products, and we continue to see exciting growth opportunities in this business segment.”
Mary Jane Hellyar, president of Tredegar film products said, “Across Tredegar Film Products we are seeing growth opportunities in each of our key businesses, driven by positive market dynamics, strong new products and continued leadership in quality, delivery and service. Our new FlexAire elastic products continue in this tradition, creating increased value for both our customers and the end consumer.”
Among the top global leaders in the plastic films industry, Tredegar manufactures plastic films, elastics, and laminate materials for the personal care, electronic display, flexible packaging, lighting, and other specialty film markets. (GK)
