Pregis chief innovation officer Tom Wetsch said: “We are seeing increased demand for higher quality flexible packaging, e-commerce protective material and surface protection films.

“Our continued investment in this facility will help us meet market segment expectations for package performance and provide vertical integration for some of Pregis’ other products.”

In addition to the three W&H lines, the 90,000ft² manufacturing facility at Grand Rapids also accommodates four modern multilayer blown film extrusion lines and film lab.

“Continued investment in this facility will help us meet market segment expectations for package performance.”

In May, the company invested nearly $6m in its Grand Rapids facility. The investment was for a second multilayer W&H blown film line.

This investment followed a $17m outlay for the first five-layer W&H line. Announced in late-2016, the investment also included converting equipment and expanded production space.

Pregis is involved in the manufacturing, marketing and supply of protective and speciality packaging solutions. It serves segments such as food, pharmaceutical, healthcare, medical devices, agricultural, e-commerce, retail, automotive, transportation, furniture, electronics, building, construction, and military/aerospace.

Last year, the company closed the acquisition of US-based company Free-Flow Packaging International.
