Sigma Stretch expands its stretch film production

Sigma Stretch Film has recently announced the purchase of a state-of-the-art cast stretch film production line from SML. The line will be installed at the Shelbyville facility in Kentucky and continues Sigma’s strategy of both expanding production capacity and investing in the latest machine technology.

State-of-the-art winding technology will allow Sigma Stretch to produce premium-quality hand-wrap films direct off the line, helping to streamline production and further reduce customer lead times. The line also allows a quick switch between small hand-wrap rolls and large machine films, flexibility which is anticipated to reduce warehousing needs whilst improving customer response times.

Sigma Plastics, the largest privately owned film extrusion group in North America with an output of over 2 billion pounds of resin and employing over 4,500 people has a commanding position in the US markets and, with its recent investment in production in the Far East, a growing presence overseas.

The line, the third from Austrian machinery manufacturer SML, will be delivered 3rd quarter 2020. With automatic roll handling allowing sustained high outputs even on hand-wrap, production of approx. 45 million pounds of stretch film per year is expected.
