Uflex gets green light for PLN 190m factory in Wrzesnia


2011-03-21



Flex Films Europa, a subsidiary of Indian packaging manufacturer Uflex, has received the go-ahead for the construction of a factory of polyester film for the food industry in Wrzesnia (Wielkopolskie voivodship), within the Walbrzych Special Economic Zone. The value of the project is PLN 190m (approx. €46m). The facility will employ over 150 people. It will be Uflex’s first manufacturing plant in Europe and fifth overall.

Construction work is scheduled to begin before the end of June, and the 20,000 m2 production plant is expected to come online in 2012. But the company’s plans do not stop there. In the coming years Uflex plans to build a further three to four similar halls and add some new jobs, taking the total value of the investment to PLN 570m (€141m).

The complex will supply PET film to customers across Europe and beyond.

At present Uflex has manufacturing facilities in India, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Mexico, and employs almost 5,000 people.
