Pregis to invest €10 million in multilayer PE-film tech at Netherlands facility


Protective-packaging converter Pregis says it will invest more than €10 million dedicated to advancements in multilayer PE-film technology and manufacturing equipment in its Heerlen, Netherlands, location. This investment supports Pregis’ commitment to continuously offer highly advanced sustainable solutions for the packaging industry.

 

The new extrusion technology will allow Pregis to engineer and produce high-yield “thin” PE film with outstanding performance for use with the Pregis AirSpeed®inflatable systems for both void-fill and Hybrid Cushioning “HC” performance-packaging solutions. The films will include the use of post-consumer recycled materials, delivering more efficient and sustainable packaging solutions. In addition, the investment includes technology to recycle internal and external plastic, further reducing waste and driving circularity.

Combined with the opening of its paper-converting facility in Born, Netherlands, in 2021 and the recent opening of the Pregis IQ innovation headquarters in Eindhoven, Netherlands, last month, Pregis continues to invest in providing packaging solutions to meet its customers’ environmental goals, including increased design for circularity and reduced carbon footprint.
