The company has finished installing two additional lines in its EOU plant in Shendra, India.
The development signifies the unit can manufacture the entire gamut of speciality films offered by the company for packaging, label and lamination applications, all under one roof.
“We are excited by these new additions in Shendra,” said Satish Subramanian, global head, sales and marketing, Cosmo Films.
“Shendra’s self-sufficiency will have a significant impact on the turnaround times and productivity of our films, improving our service standards for global customers.”
The first addition is a 2 metre wide chemical coatingline, to which the company intends to shift all its top of the line coated products like face stock for self-adhesive labels, velvet and scuff free lamination films and high barrier films.
A line camera has also been installed to detect any manufacturing defects during production.
With this latest addition, Cosmo now has five chemical coating lines, taking the annual coating capacity of the company to 10,000 tonnes.
The second addition is a 2.4 metre wide metallizer, which would augment the company’s capability to produce the complete range of metallised films, including high barrier metallised films.
