Building on its longstanding expertise of more than 35 years as a leading supplier of stretch films, Coveris now expands its capacities and further invests in its Kufstein plant. Following on from the recently announced major investment programme in Winsford UK, the second phase of this programme is now launched which expands and upgrades the technical capabilities in Kufstein, Austria through investment in a 5-layer specialist agri extrusion line.
The Winsford UK investment in new generation extrusion and pre-stretch assets creates a dedicated UK cell for stretch film production, expanding its industrial capacity and extending its capability to manufacture agricultural stretch film applications in the UK.
The 5-layer extrusion investment in Kufstein significantly enhances its position as Centre of Excellence for agri production and will allow Coveris to extend its product range to include additional premium quality silage films for high speed wrappers and challenging bale sizes. The new equipment will be installed and commissioned during quarter two 2020, and together with the Winsford investment increases Coveris silage wrap capacity to ~30k tons.
