Summary

Summary: 
A company based in the center of France, specialized in the production of multilayer films and tubes by blown extrusion, offers in all European countries film solutions for lamination and thermoforming in food, pharmaceutical, industrial and circular economy markets within the framework of manufacturing or outsourcing agreements.

Description

Description: 

The French company is an independent SME specialized in production of multilayer tubes and films by blown co-extrusion. It is located in the center of France, 100 kms away from Lyon.
It develops and produces a wide range of PE (polyethylene) films for packaging, with a large range of features which are compatible with a more circular economy and intended for food, pharmaceutical cosmetic and industrial markets.

It can manufacture different structures such as :

-PE (polyethylene)
-PE (polyethylene)/EVOH (Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer) /PE (polyethylene)
-PA (polyamides)/PE (polyethylene)
-PE (polyethylene)/PA (polyamides)/PE (polyethylene)
-PE (polyethylene)/PA (polyamides)/EVOH (Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer) /PA(polyamides)/PE (polyethylene)
-PP ((polypropylene)/EVOH (Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer) /PP((polypropylene)
etc.

FILMS FOR THE FOOD INDUSTRY :

It offers multilayers films for the following application:

• Lamination on flexible support (PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), BOPP (biaxially oriented polypropylene), aluminium, papers) for doypack, lidding film, flowpack
• Paper like films
• Automatic packing
• Printing & cutting
• Vacuum films

Its films have an adjustable sealing properties, barrier to gas and aroma (with EVOH (Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer) and PA (polyamides)) and many other options like seal-peel for easy opening, antifog, anti-UV, resistance to pasteurization or sterilization.

FILMS FOR PHARMACEUTICAL MARKETS :

It offers multilayer films for the following application:

• Pharmaceutical & medical bags (to pack powders, capsules or tablets)
• Bibag’s liner for transport of pharmaceutical products
• Lamination on flexible substrates (breathable films for membranes)
• Lamination on rigid materials for the production of blister
• Flexible thermoforming to pack medical devices

Its films have an adjustable sealing properties, mechanical resistance and a barrier to gas.

INDUSTRIAL MARKETS :

its films and tubes can be also used for:

• Paper bags lining (valve bags, open-mouth bags, pich bottom bags)
• Labels and other communication media
• Logistics (box liners, pallet covers)
• Envelop & sachets for online sales
• Funeral covers (compostable)
• Packaging machinery (form fill sealing)
• Mailing films for newspapers

CIRCULAR ECONOMY :

• Recyclable mono-material films to replace non-recyclable complexes, including MDO (Machine-direction orientation) films, the latest technology integrated by the French company.
• PE (polyethylene) or PE (polyethylene)/EVOH (Ethylene-vinyl alcohol copolymer) /PE (polyethylene) film for direct use (without lamination)
• Films produced with mechanically or chemically recycled materials,
• Bio-based films,
• Compostable and biodegradable films.

The French company is deeply attached to its territory and, in the same time, particularly open to the world, selling more than 40% of its multi-layer films and tubes in 28 countries.

The company is targeting new partners in markets such as food, pharmaceutical, industrial and circular economy markets, under a manufacturing agreement (for made to order products). At the same time, the company is opened for an outsourcing agreement with industrial packaging companies. The company is mostly interested in a long-term cooperation. Expressions of interest from all European countries are welcome

Advantages & innovations

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
A manufacturing agreement is primarily envisaged, addressing European companies which need multilayer films and tubes by blown extrusion for its products. Potential partners should work in the following industries : - food - pharmaceutical - cosmetics - indsutry - circular economy The French company is also seeking for potential partners to collaborate under the outsourcing agreement. A potential partner could be any company searching for solutions for a high-technicity film, tube or bag with innovative features dealing with their packaging needs. For example : - printers / complex makers / flexible packaging producers - thermoformers - bags producers - paper bags manufacturers, etc. The company is preferably looking for business partners for long-term cooperation and expect this will enable them to find new markets in all european countries and increase their turnover.
