Press Releases

Kuala Lumpur, 09/24/2014 | Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating, a member of the German Reifenhäuser Group, is building two 5-layer CPP film lines for the production of lamination film and metallizable film to be supplied to Scientex Great Wall Sdn Bhd, a Malaysian producer strongly focused on growth. The company will use Reifenhäuser technology to enter the market with this new product range. With the business closed in Kuala Lumpur on 24th September, 2014 the Reifenhäuser Group continues to strengthen its growth in Asia.

With the investment in two high-tech lines of the MIDEX series, Scientex Great Wall Sdn Bhd has opted for Reifenhäuser technology designed for highest precision, flexibility and efficiency. Most advanced components like the Reicofeed 2.1 feedblock will be installed in the lines by Reifenhäuser. The technology enables to achieve excellent film qualities and thickness tolerances and the distribution of layers can be adjusted during running production. Designed for a maximum net film width of 3250 mm and an output of up to 1288 kg/h, each of the line will produce about 300 meter of film per minute.

Bernd Reifenhäuser, CEO of the Reifenhäuser Group says: ”We are delighted that Scientex has chosen Reifenhäuser as partner to enter into the production of cast film. The two high-tech lines form a strong basis for joint growth in the future and a long-term cooperation. It will be the start of a symbiosis of two strong, future-oriented companies: Scientex as a highly dynamic company in the packaging business, and Reifenhäuser as the leader in plastics extrusion technology. We will support Scientex with our know-how and our decades of experience in plastics extrusion to help establish their new business area. To ensure the success of our customers we have created optimum conditions in Asia.”

Asia is an important focus market for the Reifenhäuser Group. Reifenhäuser Cast Sheet Coating alone has been able to install more than 15 lines here over the past 18 months. The group-wide annual growth of the market is in a double-digit percentage range since 2009. Therefore, Reifenhäuser has strengthened again the local sales team in recent months, and has expanded the Reifenhäuser China site to optimize customer support by own sales and service staff.
