Taghleef Industries starts up new film-coating line at Italian plant

As a leading global manufacturer of PP-based, bio-based, and biodegradable films, Taghleef Industries says it continues to deploy innovative investments to offer the most advanced portfolio of solutions for the Flexible Packaging, Labels and Technical films markets.

Building on a strong and consolidated expertise in the coating processes and modern chemistries, Taghleef has commissioned a new state-of-the-art, proprietary film-coating line in San Giorgio di Nogaro (Italy), which scales up the existing capacities of Alcalá la Real (Spain) and Terre-Haute (Indiana, USA). With its tailor-made design and a production capacity ranging from 10,000 to 18,000 tons/yr, the new coating line allows Ti to serve new high-value segments and enter emerging markets, such as smart packaging.

“With this new investment, Taghleef Industries reinforces its commitment to deliver functional and reliable packaging film solutions, giving our customers an access to a much wider range of applications that cater to the sustainability goals they wish to fulfill,” says Mario Molinaro, Business Unit Director – Packaging Films EU.

“This is also true for our label films line. In fact, by matching the inherent functionalities of our base films with our in-house coating technologies, we will be able to provide more and more tailor- made solutions to satisfy the growing variety of applications,” adds Simone Baldin, Business Unit Manager – Label Films EU.

“Our mission is to ensure that our products are aligned with Circular Economy principles and answer to our stakeholders’ important needs such as Product Protection, Performance and Sustainability. These three main pillars are at the core of every Ti film solution. In fact, each product line is designed with the highest specifications, characteristics, and benefits, based on the organization’s best practices in product innovation and supply chain optimization,” concludes Monica Battistella, Product and Sustainability Manager.

With this newest investment, Taghleef Industries confirms its commitments to Dynamic Cycle(TM). Dynamic Cycle is Taghleef’s set of initiatives for better solutions that positively impact people’s lives, looking at todays and future generations. It translates into strategic choices, advanced know-how, a focused investment strategy and the most compliant portfolio.
