LINPAC Packaging has responded to reports in some publications with reference to the company’s packaging film manufacturing facility at Pontivy.
The LINPAC Packaging facility in Pontivy has become a European centre of excellence for the production of packaging film. Recent investments in the plant have included a seven-layer film extrusion line to produce sophisticated barrier lidding film for meat packs.
A report in the general media suggested that, as part of the company’s ongoing investment in raising output of multilayered barrier film, the plant at Pontivy would be scaling back its production of PVC films.
David Meldram, Chief Executive at LINPAC Packaging, said: “It is certainly not the case that we are scaling back production of our PVC products at Pontivy. Many of our customers, particularly the converters, depend on Pontivy for their PVC supplies and we remain committed to supplying them for the long term.”
“PVC remains a key packaging material throughout Europe and the world and will remain so for some time to come until new materials and technologies emerge to replace it – until then, PVC will remain a key element of LINPAC Packaging’s product range.”
“We continue to work in partnership with all our customers to ensure that we deliver the products and materials of the highest standard and to their requirements. This continues to be the case with PVC production at Pontivy.”
