Two new metallization lines at Brindisi will ensure product quality and consistent supply

ExxonMobil Chemical Co : 10 January, 2005  (New Product)
ExxonMobil Chemical announces today that it is installing two new metallization lines at its oriented polypropylene films plant in Brindisi, Italy. The investment in metallization by ExxonMobil reinforces the company's commitment to the OPP films business through the provision of an improved and steady supply of quality metallized films to the flexible packaging industry. The first line is set to start producing commercially in the first quarter of 2005, with the second line due to start up a few months later.

The investment in metallization by ExxonMobil reinforces the company's commitment to the OPP films business through the provision of an improved and steady supply of quality metallized films to the flexible packaging industry. The first line is set to start producing commercially in the first quarter of 2005, with the second line due to start up a few months later.

'The new metallizers will give us much more flexibility and responsiveness to growing market demand,' says Carlo Ranucci, general manager, ExxonMobil Chemical Films Europe. 'Production from the two lines, together with that from ExxonMobil's supply network across Europe and North America, will effectively ensure that supply of metallized films is capable of meeting customers' expectations both today and in the future.'

The new vacuum metallizer lines provide excellent processing capability with the ability to metallize a range of gauges between 12 and 50 microns at high speeds, providing outstanding barrier properties.

'These metallizers will increase our capacity,' says Christian Candoni, product manager for metallized films, ExxonMobil Chemical Films Europe. 'We aim to reduce lead-times and fluctuations in supply and consistently offer our customers the highest quality metallized films.'

The Films Business of ExxonMobil Chemical is a leading global supplier of a full range of OPP films for flexible packaging and labeling applications. ExxonMobil has seven affiliated production plants: three in Europe (Virton, Belgium; Kerkrade, the Netherlands; and Brindisi, Italy) and four in North America (LaGrange, Georgia; Stratford, Connecticut; Shawnee, Oklahoma; and Belleville, Canada). Its European headquarters is located in Luxembourg and its U.S. headquarters is in Macedon, New York. The company and its affiliates have sales offices to support customer needs in countries around the world, including North America and Europe as well as Africa and Asia.
