In Brindisi, Italy, the largest European plant for BOPE and BOPP films

A further expansion of the Jindal Films Europe Plant in Brindisi will create minimum 20 highly qualified jobs and add a capacity of further 50,000 tons 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.
