New investment in BOPE line at Jindal Films Brindisi

Jindal Films Europe announces a further expansion in its Brindisi plant that will create minimum 20 highly qualified jobs and add a capacity of further 50.000 MT on top of the current production volume of the site.

This additionally produced volume will be mainly dedicated to Jindal’s new innovative BOPE specialty film grades, including matt, sealable, coated, metallized and Alox films.

The new film developments will be focusing on fully sustainable and recyclable packaging solutions and strongly support the circular economy. In addition to that, this high efficiency program will also include the use of solar power and an expansion of the current trigeneration energy systems.

This investment project is designed to further strengthening Jindal Films Europe’s leading role in the BOPE- and BOPP film markets. With a new total capacity of 130.000 MT Brindisi will become the biggest plant in Europe for BOPE- and BOPP films manufacturing.

This project is named “Horizon” because Jindal Films Europe is preparing itself for the future looking ahead what is beyond “Horizon”.

This investment initiative is the result of a close cooperation with Regione Puglia on the basis of the Contratto di Programma.
