BPI Stretchfilms has announced plans for a ‘multi-million pound’ investment at its facility in Bridgwater, Somerset.
The cash injection will see seven new conversion machines added for production of conventional and pre-stretched hand film.
The new hardware will increase annual capacity at the site to 15,000 tonnes of cast machine film and 8,000 tonnes of hand film. The expansion will further create 20 new full-time jobs.
With the addition of the new machines, the Bridgwater location will become the centre of excellence for film products, with all material types being delivered from the same factory.
Kurt Grazier, commercial director at BPI Stretchfilms, said: “[The company] is committed to investing back into its facilities to ensure its product portfolio remains at the cutting edge. The project gives us an excellent platform for further product innovation and future capacity expansion.”
