Leading Polish stretch film extruder Efekt Plus Sp. z.o.o. is growing its production capacity with the construction of a new 15,000m2 plant building in the southeast of the country.
In a reported €9.52m investment project, the Warsaw-based company has started work on the new unit on a site in the Rzeszów-Dworzysko Special Economic Zone. The plant building is due to include a new production hall as well as warehousing and office space.
Efekt Plus, which specialises in manufacturing a range of cast stretch film types at two existing plants situated nearby, plans to instal the first of several new lines by the end of 2019.
The firm, which will initially create 20 new jobs at the planned facility, expects to increase its film production capacity by 25,000tpa once the first line is operating.
Efekt Plus’s latest investment scheme illustrates the company "is committed to continuous development" and wants to expand its portfolio offering with a range of new products, it said.
The new operation is on a site in the SEZ to the north of Rzeszów, the largest city in south eastern Poland while Efekt Plus’s existing plant there is situated closer to the urban centre. Its main production unit is located across the country at the Aeropolis Scientific and Technology Park in Rogoźnica, west of Wroclaw.
These plants are currently equipped with five lines producing a total output of around 120,000tpa. The machinery park includes a big six-metre polyethylene stretch film line with a 40,000tpa capacity Efekt Plus installed at the Rogoźnica site in September 2015.
Efekt Plus, whose products first came on the market in 2006, manufactures a range of jumbo, machine, hand and mini-wrap rolled stretch film products.
