Coveris has acquired new generation 5- and 3-layer extrusion lines in order to grow its position in the supply of stretch films for agricultural, silage and industrial use.

The assets acquired from the Preston site of the former Total Polyfilms business will be moved into Coveris’ European Films business unit, where they will significantly strengthen capacity and capability in these key strategic markets.

“This investment in new assets will further strengthen our capacity and capabilities, allowing us to even better serve the needs of our customers now and in the future,” said Martin Davis, Films president, on the asset acquisitions.
