The RKW Group is making a multi-million-euro investment to expand its technical infrastructure and extrusion capacities in agricultural films and nets.
The investment will include the expansion of RKW’s plants in Michelstadt, Germany and Hoogstraten, Belgium, turning them into agricultural “centers of competence”.
The sites, said the Frankenthal, Germany-based group in a statement, specialise in products which offer “particularly high added-value to customers in the agricultural and horticultural sectors.”
Their products include silage films and tubes, round bale nets and greenhouse films.
“Agricultural films and nets are important elements in our RKW portfolio and we have set ourselves the objective of further expanding global sales of these products,” explained Paul Leenders, division agriculture’s vice president marketing & sales.
Another strategic measure by RKW will be the streamlining and strengthening of its silage portfolio.
The company said it plans to officially launch its new silage portfolio in autumn 2017.
