Films and bags specialist EcoCortec has expanded its plant in Beli Manastir, Croatia, with the installation of a new extrusion line to increase capacity by 50%.
The move comes in response to increasing consumer demand.
The plant's planned phase 2 construction and expansion is currently underway, and includes a new production hall with three new extrusion lines.
This expansion will allow the company to produce vapor phase corrosion inhibitor (VpCI) paper and to store Cortec chemical products.
EcoCortec manufactures Cortec Corporation's VpCI films, which are said to be important in the corrosion-protection business.
Tested in Cortec's ISO/IEC-17025 accredited laboratory, the products manufactured by the company are exported to all European and Asian countries.
The company offers such capabilities as complete converting, extruding and printing to its customers. It manufactures films and bags based on customer specifications in terms of product size and performance, and offers flexibility in terms of order sizes and special customer requests.
EcoCortec will also house Bionetix biological products.
Owned by Cortec Corporation, Canada-based Bionetix International manufactures microbial-based bio-products.
Headquartered in Minnesota, US, Cortec Corporation provides its services to such sectors as packaging, metalworking, construction, electronics, water treatment, oil and gas, and other industries. It produces more than 400 products that are distributed worldwide.
