BPI invests Euro3.9m at Belgian factory

The bpi.formipac subsidiary of British Polythene Industries is investing £3m (€3.9m) in a state-of-the-art multi-layer film extrusion line at its plant in Zele, Belgium.

The line will start production in March 2009 and will be used exclusively for production of PE silage stretch films.

The new capacity is said to be aimed specifically at the production of Baletite, a product launched at Agritechnica, Europe’s premier agricultural exhibition last November.

Baletite is designed to replace the traditional netwrap product that is currently used on round hay bales. It is either a 3-layer or 5-layer white film with a nominal width of 1,230mm.

The film is UV stabilised and guaranteed for one year. It provides full-width coverage of bales, providing protection against both rain and groundwater.

BPI’s investment at Zele follows on from its installation of two new five-layer film lines at its Leominster factory in November last year.

Presenting BPI’s annual results for 2007 earlier this month, chairman Cameron McLatchie highlighted encouraging early sales of silage stretchwrap in 2008. This followed a good year in 2007
