American RENOLIT Corp (ARC), a leading US manufacturer of high-quality plastic films, is investing in a new calender line that will extend the capacity of its production plant in La Porte, IN.
After being granted approval by the Supervisory Board of RENOLIT, operational rollout of the “calender 35” capacity extension project has now started. The initial steps in the engineering work will take place by the end of 2017, with major equipment components being shipped from suppliers during the first half of next year. The core equipment – the calender line – is planned to be delivered mid-2018. With everything going according to plan, the new line will be completed in time to start first production trials by the end of 2018.
