Infiana Group adds extruder in Malvern, Pa

Infiana Group GmbH is expanding its UNITED STATES capacity by adding a new extruder at its Malvern, Pa. facility.

The company, formerly known as Huhtam?ki Films, changed its name to Infiana in January. Private equity firm Deutsche Beteiligungs AG led a control buyout in November 2014, acquiring the film organization from Huhtam?ki Oyj of Finland.

¡°This will add to our portfolio,¡± noted Robert Shumoski, general manager of Infiana North America.

He said the company¡¯s current building had room for the extra line.

Shumoski said the Malvern facility has already established a strong presence in the building and construction market. The new collection strengthens its functions and also allows for new opportunities in pressure sensitive movies markets and can help expand its composites and personal care marketplaces. The expansion as well gives it more flexibility and the capability to handle seasonal demand.

He said he cannot elaborate on the specifics of the expansion. Infiana has been around Malvern since 1964 and creating blown film since 2003.

The business said that it has about 100 employees in Malvern supplying silicone-coated release films as well as non-siliconized smooth extrusion equipment manufacturers and embossed film.

¡°We are well on our method to developing THE UNITED STATES into a high-caliber organization with a wide technology base, efficient apparatus, and more than anything setting up on a human capital base that will make our ideas in the U.S. a success,¡± stated Peter Wahsner, CEO of Infiana Group, in a statement.

This marks Infiana¡¯s first growth because it became independent. The new name comes from three words - creativity, infinity and film.

Infiana Group GmbH is headquartered found in Forchheim, Germany. It provides about 1 overall,000 employees with development establishments in Forchheim; Malvern; Camacari, Brazil; and Samutsakorn, Thailand. Infiana reported 2014 product sales around 200 million euros ($219 million).
